So they read distinctly from the book, in the Law of God; and they gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading. Nehemiah 8:8
Over a hundred years ago, two brothers, William and John Muir of Scotland, advanced the cause of missions in India while serving with the Indian Civil Service. William wrote this about the Bible: “It is the Bible that has been aback of all …evangelizing, and reviving movements. From it has come the inspiration which has sent out the most successful missionaries and evangelists to gather in the lost; and no evangelical agency can expect to prosper unless it keeps the Bible in the very forefront. Whether we think of the great revival of heart religion which we call the Reformation, or of the Puritan Revival…or of the Methodist Revival…we always find that the good work gathered round the Bible.”
God’s Word is living and active in spiritual revival, and it’s our sword in spiritual warfare. Read it distinctly, study the meaning, and practice its message.
What a Book! Vast and wide as the world! Rooted in the abysses of creation and towering up beyond the blue secrets of heaven! Sunrise and sunset, birth and death, promise and fulfillment, the whole drama of humanity are all in this Book! It is the Book of books! Heinrich Heine
