Let's Celebrate the Bible!

I love to read the Bible. I do. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read the Bible. And this week is National Bible Week. So I thought I'd try to post a little something every day this week...

We will never love God purely--wholeheartedly--apart from immersing ourselves in God's Word because it is only in Scripture that we learn what God is like. To know him is to love him, and we always desire more of what we love most. ~ Lydia Brownback, Purity, 23

Hebrews 4:12-13

...God's word is living, active, and sharper than any two-edged sword. It penetrates to the point that it separates the soul from the spirit and the joints from the morrow. It's able to judge the heart's thoughts and intentions. No creature is hidden from it, but rather everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of the one to whom we have to give an answer. (Common English Bible)

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Every scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for showing mistakes, for correcting, and for training character, so that the person who belongs to God can be equipped to do everything that is good. (Common English Bible)

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! (Common English Bible)

Didn't know it was National Bible Week. Well, it's always a good week to read the Bible.
