The Preacher's Special
Subject: READ YOUR BIBLE
Date: Wed, 07 Mar 2007
As I was reading my Bible this morning, I began to think about how precious it is to me. I wish everyone would see that Old Book as I do. If they did, I would not have to remind and plead folks to read it every day. So many all around us a failing and falling and just a few minutes in the Bible at the beginning of each day could make the difference for them.
How sad to see a ruined life sitting in my office, knowing that there is very little I can do or say. Without exception, if they had read and heeded the Bible, all the pain and regret could have been avoided.
Though the covers be worn and the pages be torn,
And some places bear traces of tears
More precious than gold is this book worn and old,
That shatters and scatters my fears.
When I prayerfully look in this precious old book,
Much pleasure and treasure I see;
Many tokens of love from a Father above,
Who is nearest and dearest to me.
This book is my guide, a friend at my side,
It lightens and brightens my day;
Each promise I find soothes and
Gladdens my mind,
As I read it and heed today.
To this book I will cling, of it's worth I will sing,
Though losses and crosses be mine.
For I cannot despair though surrounded by care,
While possessing this book so divine.
Dear Precious friend, open your Bible today and read the wonderful, powerful, and loving Word of our God. You will get the help you need for all you will face today.
