The Bible – The Book Of God

The Book of God!

(author unknown)

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness — that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

This book contains:
the mind of God,
the state of man,
the way of salvation,
the doom of lost sinners, and
the happiness of believers.

Its doctrine is holy,
its precepts are binding,
its histories are true, and
its decisions are immutable.

It contains . . .
light to direct you,
food to support you, and
comfort to cheer you.

This book is . . .
the traveler’s map,
the pilgrim’s staff,
the pilot’s compass,
the soldier’s sword, and
the Christian’s charter.

Here Heaven is open — and the gates of Hell are disclosed.

Christ is the grand subject,
our good is its design, and
the glory of God is its end.

This book should . . .
fill the memory,
rule the heart,
and guide the feet.

It is . . .
a mine of wealth,
health to the soul,
and a river of pleasure.

It . . .
involves the highest responsibility,
will reward the greatest labor, and
condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

Read it to be wise,
believe it to be safe,
and practice it to be holy.

Read it . . .
slowly,
frequently,
and prayerfully.

This Book — the Book of Books, the Book of God, the Bible — is the revelation of God to man!
