Think About It: The Holy Word of God

The Bible is the Holy Word of God. “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105.

It was about a year ago at this time of the year that God laid it upon my heart to give each member of my family one of my Bibles that I used over the years of my ministry.

Some of the Bibles were pretty well worn out however, the Holy Word of God in them never changed, it remained strong and clear.

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of this book, If any man shall add unto the things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book” Rev. 22:18-19

One of the highlights of my ministry that I always looked forward to was when the children of our churches would recite to the congregation the Scriptures they learned in Bible school or Sunday school.

Sometimes they would forget part of the words however it always thrilled my heart to know they were learning the Holy Word of God. It is very important that our children learn early in their lives the Holy Word of God.

“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee” Psalm 119:11.

One of the first Bible verses I learned in my life as a child was John 3:16. I had a Sunday school teacher that insisted that everyone in her Sunday school class would memorize John 3:16. To this day I have never forgotten it. Thank God for good, patient Sunday school teachers.

“But the Word of the Lord endureth forever” I Peter1: 25.

All that I am I owe to Jesus Christ revealed to me in His divine book” — David Livingstone.

Read God’s Holy Word everyday. It will make a difference in your life.
