“There is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book”, says the Guinness Book of records. The whole Bible has been translated into 349 languages and 2,123 languages have at least one book of the Bible in that language.
A pastor of a church in SE Asia prayed for 65 years to have a Bible of his own. He only had some hand written verses which had been copied. Every time he tried to get a copy it was taken from him. Five times he crossed the border into a neighbouring country to buy one only to have it confiscated by the border police on his return.
Finally in March 2015 his prayer was answered and he received a Bible in his native language. He started to read it and by October 2016 he had read right through four times!!
How much do we value the Bible? Do we read it regularly or only on a Sunday?
The Bible shows the way to live but more than that it shows the way to life!
“The Word of God is living and active. Sharper than a double-edged sword” Heb:4:12.
We need to value it, read it regularly, study it, learn it and to make it an integral part of our lives. MC
