“So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children
begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they
will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.
I have for many years made it a practice to read
through the Bible once every year.”
(John Quincy Adams, America’s 6th President)
“It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially
a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the
groundwork of human freedom.”
(Horace Greely, American abolitionist)
“Bible reading is an education in itself.”
(Lord Alfred Tennyson)
“Of the Divine character of the Bible, I think no man
who deals honestly with his own mind can entertain a reasonable
doubt that it is indeed the Word of God.”
(Simon Greenleaf, Royal Dane Professor of Law at Harvard University)

The best Bible is a well-worn Bible.
The best Bible is a Bible that is read and obeyed.
The best Bible is one that is given to another person.
Instead of just reading quotes about the Bible, let’s have a great year reading the Bible for ourselves. Take the challenge. Go through it from front to back and start again. Study its pages carefully and intently. Apply the words from its pages to your life and encourage other believers with what you have learned. And please make sure to share those words and the vital messages they contain with lost souls who so desperately need to hear them.
The world seems to be in the business of taking privileges away from the people, but it cannot take away the privilege of reading God’s Holy Word, at least not yet.
Until the Nets are Full,
P.S. Something is up. We need to be sharing our faith now!
