The Bible

The Bible

"This book reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way. Of salvation, the doom of sinners And the happiness of believers. 

Its doctrines are holy, it's precepts are binding, it's histories are true and Its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you! 

It is the travelers map, the pilgrims staff, the pilots compose, the solders sword and the Christians charter. Here, too heaven is opened and the gates of hell disclosed.

Christ is the grand subject, our good it's design and the glory of God it's end.

It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, playfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory and a river of pleasure.

It is given you in life, will be open to judgment and be remembered forever. It involves highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour and condemn all who trifle it's sacred contents. 

Owned, it is riches. Studied it is wisdom, trusted it is salvation, loved it is character and obeyed it is power."


I saw this in a gideon bible, ya know those bibles in hotels? Well anyway i read this and i really like it!!! 

Sorry about the lack of posts :( I'v been really busy lately, doing school work, going on a youth retreat, staying at Mt. Baker for thanksgiving, going nerd bowling and watching my HS football team win state! If you want to here more about these things you'll just have to stay tuned. 

Have a wonderful day!!!!
