When the printing press was invented, one of the first books to be printed was the Bible. And it’s still the best-selling book of all time. An anonymous author wrote: ‘It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the fate of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It is a light to direct you, food to nourish you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveller’s road map, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s weapon, and the player’s game plan. It’s a mine of incredible wealth, and a river of genuine joy. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Christ is its grand subject, your good its design, and the glory of God its end. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practice it to be spiritually healthy. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully. Let it fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your steps. It is given to you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered for ever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour, and judge those who trifle with its sacred contents.’ The Bible is ‘The word of our God which shall stand forever’ (see 1 Peter 1:25). Most of us respect the Bible, but we’re not always so good at reading it regularly and putting it into practice. We have a great opportunity to ‘translate’ the Bible into everyday life for those who don’t know it by letting its wisdom guide our actions, thoughts, and conversations – showing the difference God’s Word makes. So let’s be enthusiastic about reading and sharing the Bible!
