Charles Colson once said, “The Bible is banned, burned, beloved. More widely read, more frequently attacked than any other book in history. Generations of intellectuals have attempted to discredit it; dictators of every age have outlawed it and executed those who read it. Yet soldiers carry it into battle believing it is more powerful than their weapons. Fragments of it smuggled into solitary prison cells have transformed ruthless killers into gentle saints. Pieced together scraps of Scripture have converted whole villages of pagan Indians.”
This reminds me of Jesus words in one of His final sermons; “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away” (Matthew 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33). Authors come and go and are forgotten. Money and possessions are gathered, spent, stolen and given away. The character of the Bible is such that nothing in this world can change its quality or power because “Forever, O Lord, Your word is firmly fixed in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89).
David says, “Therefore I love your commandments above gold, above fine gold.” (Psalm 119:127).
If you were to write on a piece of paper what God’s Word means to you, what would you say? Would that be proved by the way you live before others and in private? This needs serious thought.
