Augustine of Hippo called the Bible “our letters from home.”
Abraham Lincoln once reflected that the Bible, “is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book.”
The late Dr. Adrian Rogers, former pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church and a longtime member of our board, said, “The Bible is not a book of the month, but the Book of the Ages. It’s so majestically deep that scholars could swim and never touch the bottom. Yet so wonderfully shallow that a little child could come and get a drink of water without fear of drowning.”
Aren’t those terrific?
I love to listen to the Bible as I walk. No matter the scene or setting, it comes alive to me. I suspect you have your favorite place to take in God’s Word, too.
John Piper’s ministry, Desiring God, sums up the tremendous power of the Bible in a simple new video I want to share with you.
In this piece, Piper reads a poem he wrote.
“God wrote a book,” he starts.
“That reality blows me away every time I stop to think about it,” Piper continues. “Pages and pages … of GOD. His thoughts, His words, His heart.”
I would encourage you to take a few moments and enjoy the recitation. What might the Lord be telling you as you listen?
