In this month of thanks come here daily for scripture and inspiration.
On November 3, give thanks for The Word of God.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
~ Psalm 119:105
The Bible is the most published, most translated and yes, most documented book in the world. Some six billion Bibles have been printed and there are currently some 1,300 translations worldwide.
On this, the third day of November, give thanks that the Word of God is readily available to you and your family. Give thanks for it. Read it. Spend time with it.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
~ John 1:1
O Word of God incarnate,
O Wisdom from on high,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
O Light of our dark sky:
we praise you for the radiance
that from the hallowed page,
a lantern to our footsteps,
shines on from age to age.
~ William W. How, 1823-1897
Thoughts about the Word of God
“We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.”
~ John R.W. Stott
“The soul can do without everything except the word of God, without which none at all of its wants are provided for.”
~ Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty
“A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”
~ Charles H. Spurgeon
“The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.”
~ D.L. Moody
“I think the greatest weakness in the church today is that almost no one believes that God invests His power in the Bible. Everyone is looking for power in a program, in a methodology, in a technique, in anything and everything but that in which God has placed it—His Word. He alone has the power to change lives for eternity, and that power is focused on the Scriptures.”
~ R.C. Sproul, The Prayer of the Lord
