The Power of God's Word!
Thomas Brooks said, “The Word of the Lord is a light to guide you, a counselor to counsel you, a comforter to comfort you, a staff to support you, a sword to defend you, and a physician to cure you. The Word is a mine to enrich you, a robe to clothe you, and a crown to crown you.”
E. Stanley Jones added, “The Bible redirects my will, cleanses my emotions, enlightens my mind, and quickens my total being.”
Charles Colson stated, “Nothing has affected the rise and fall of civilization, the character of cultures, the structure of governments, and the lives of the inhabitants of this planet as profoundly as the words of the Bible.”
A.T. Pierson realized, “While other books inform, and some few reform, this one book transforms.”
And my favorite – Martin Luther declared, “The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.”
The Bible is God’s written revelation to us! It’s inspired! It’s alive! It’s powerful! It changes lives!
