The Comfort of Scripture

31 Jan

THIS BOOK is the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners (who reject the Savior), and the happiness of believers.

Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its 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 traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter.

Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.

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

 It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.

 Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully.

 It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.

Follow It’s precepts and It will lead you to Calvary, to the empty Tomb, to a resurrected life in Christ, yes, to Glory, itself, for Eternity.

It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever.

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

I am resting tonight in the sweet comfort this Blessed Book gives. I can’t imagine life without it!

Happy Monday, friends!

 “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

 Romans 15:4
