Today's Bible Reading:  1 John 1:3-7

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have
fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you,
that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one
with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Turn a Page
Turn a page to hear a voice
Of One who helps us make a choice.
Call upon His name this hour
Be saved by His grace and power.
Turn a page to read some more
Of golden gates beyond a door
A door still open for those in need
Of sins forgiven and being freed.
Pages flow perfectly into each other
Encouraging us to love one another.
Turn another, ponder and read
And on His Word, begin to feed.
Living words will take hold
Granting us faith to then be bold…
Bold enough to honor His book
That draws us deeper for another look.
God writes upon each seeking heart
And changes us to become a part
Of His family joined with holy love
Who are entered into His book above.
Seeds of faith are found on each page
Planted in souls throughout each age.
Golden pages help us to see
The glory of eternity.

Psalm 119:140  
Thy word is very pure:
 therefore thy servant loveth it.

The Bible

The B- I - B-L - E,
Yes, that’s the book for me;
I stand alone on the Word of God
The B- I - B-L - E.
