Did you know there are countries where it is dangerous or even illegal to have a Bible? Yet there are some who are willing to take that risk because they understand the importance of God’s Word. They know the power that comes from God’s Word and the guidance it gives them to lead lives that honor Him. What about you? Do you respect and value God’s Word? The Bible is a gift to us. It is through His words that He teaches us how to live in ways that please Him, helps us grow in our relationship with Him, and instructs us how to share the gospel.
Read God’s Word. Thank God for giving us His Word. Know His Word. Learn from His Word. Live His Word. Respect and honor His Word.
