    the Bible

    15 years ago I was given a small pocket size Gideons Bible. For such a small bible it had the biggest statement I had ever read on the second page in. It brought a tear to my eye then. I ran across this little bible the other day and I had the same reaction.

    The Bible contains 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, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and it decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice 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. It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered for ever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

    Samuel Boggs is the author of these words This is an excerpt from a speech he gave in 1923.

    Ray, that has to be one of the most articulate, comprehensive, yet concise statements about the Bible I've ever read. Incredibly well said.

    I understand why it touched you, it moved me as well. Thanks!
