5 AMAZING QUALITIES OF THE BIBLE (that make me read it every day)

Intro:
The Bible is very special because it is God’s word recorded for our benefit. I am therefore not surprised that an article in the Business Insider titled “The 10 Most Read Books In The World” had this to say in December 2012:

The most read book in the world is the Bible.
Writer James Chapman created a list of the most read books in the world based on the number of copies each book sold over the last 50 years.
He found that the Bible far outsold any other book, with a whopping 3.9 billion copies sold over the last 50 years. “Quotations from the Works of Mao Tse-tung” came in second with 820 million copies sold .… (Mao’s book was made compulsory reading in China)[words in brackets, mine]

More recent statistics from the constantly updated Guinness World Records website estimate the number of Bible copies sold at 5 billion. In the article, “Best-selling book of non-fiction”, the authoritative ranking organisation states that, “Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book.”

What is it about the Bible that has enthralled people since the component books were first assembled in A.D. 400 through the first printing of 180 copies by Gutenberg (somewhere between 1454 and 1456) to today’s era of seamless mass publication in textual and audio formats?

In an earlier post, I discussed the benefits of reading the Bible such as getting to know God better, building one’s faith and knowing how to share that faith with others. (You can read that post by clicking on the title below.)

In this post, I’ll be looking at some wonderful qualities of the Bible I discovered through my experience of reading and studying it for several decades.

5 AMAZING QUALITIES OF THE BIBLE

1. The Bible is candid: It does not sugarcoat things or paint a glossy picture of God, ourselves and the world in which we live. Some people like to see God as this happy, cheerful Being up in the skies who is only eager to rain blessings on us, sort of like Father Christmas. Yes, God is joyful and kind but that is not all He is. He is also a holy God, who hates sin and punishes it. So if anyone describes God like s/he would a drinking buddy, “He’s such a jolly good fellow. Let’s drink to that!”, tell them that’s not really the God of the Bible. God does get very angry sometimes and it’s a very frightful thing to behold. We see this over and over in Bible passages like this one from Second Kings:

“12. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle. 13. And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down. 14. And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies; 15. Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day” – 2 Kings 21:12-15.

God loves us, yes, and I can’t emphasise that enough. He wants to care for us and protect us, but He also wants us to live right: to honour Him and care for one another. Furthermore, He wants us to look after the world He has given us, its other creatures and resources. We are to use what we need to sustain ourselves but we are not to, through greed, destroy the earth and the living things therein. But humanity has not listened. Just like in the days before the flood recorded in Genesis, evil is increasing everyday and it’s unbelievable the depths to which people are sinking in this. But God already foresaw this and threatened judgment in the Bible.

“1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” – 2 Timothy 3:1-4.

“… the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” – Revelation 21:8.

The Bible also tells us exactly what we are like. Contrary to the teachings of secular humanism that portray man as intrinsically good and self-sufficient, without redemption through the blood of Jesus and regeneration by the Holy Spirit and God’s word, man is selfish, wicked and often unable to do what is right for others and even for himself.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” – Jeremiah 17:9

“18. Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: … 23. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” – 1 Peter 1:18-19, 23.

The world too is not as good as it was when God created it. Sin tainted everything and the result has been calamity upon calamity, until the redemption of all things comes.

“19. For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed. 20. For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope 21. that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22. For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now. 23. And not only this, but we too, who have the first fruits of the Spirit [a joyful indication of the blessings to come], even we groan inwardly, as we wait eagerly for [the sign of] our adoption as sons—the redemption and transformation of our body [at the resurrection]” – Romans 8:19-23 (AMP).

2. The Bible is coherent: It is true that some people point out what they see as contradictions in it, but for a book with 66 different sub-books written over a span of 1,500 years by 40 different authors, the Bible is pretty amazing in its coherence. This lends credence to the assertion in 2 Timothy 3:16 that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God”. In other words, God’s word was revealed to people across the centuries who recorded it for the purpose of uniting man to God. This uniformity of source and purpose is what gives rise to the consistency of the message and the connectedness of the various parts.

As a result, certain parts in different sub-books and by different authors complement each other. For instance, prophecies about the Messiah in the Old Testament (e.g. Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53) see uncanny fulfilment in the life, ministry and crucifixion of Jesus as recorded in the New Testament Gospels.

3. The Bible is always fresh: As old as the Bible is, it still speaks to us today. The oldest books in the Bible (Genesis and Job) are said to be over 3,400 years old, yet they are still as relevant today as when they were written. For instance, in the account of Eve’s temptation by the serpent in Genesis 3, we see the devil’s timeless trick of making us feel we don’t need to be subordinate to God, that we can be just as smart and powerful as He is. We know how well that works for those who heed the devil’s “advice”. In Job, we see man grappling with the mystery of unjust suffering as many still do today.

One of the most awe-inspiring parts of Job’s experience for me has always been his response when God showed up. He forgot all his questions and complaints and went into worship. It tells me that God’s presence makes everything alright, it makes the worst situations bearable. You see, contrary to what some people preach today, God doesn’t always remove the pain or provide all the answers. Sometimes, He chooses to give grace, be with us and strengthen us through the difficulty. This is how Apostle Paul learnt that lesson:

“7. … there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” – 2 Corinthians 12:7-9.

The perpetual freshness of the Bible makes it possible to glean new insight from passages we’ve read so many times before. Depending on our needs and our ministry over time, God continues to open our eyes to new wisdom in His word. I find this very exciting because every time I read, I have no idea what riches I’m about to discover and the treasures are just inexhaustible. And as many as make time to delve into God’s word devotionally are similarly rewarded.

4. The Bible is deep: The discovery I referred to above is unlikely except we read the Bible with the help of God’s Spirit. He inspired the word and so, He can interpret it best. When a poet writes a piece with complicated imagery, many may read it without comprehension until the symbols used are explained to them. I once read the following passage in Isaiah:

“2. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law” – Isaiah 42:2-4.

From these verses, I received a rhema about Jesus that strengthened me during a very trying period in my life. Last year, I shared that rhema as part of a post about the attributes of Jesus.

Without making Jesus our Lord and Saviour and having the indwelling Holy Spirit, we’ll be reading the Bible intellectually and skimming the surface or writing it off as confusing. This is how Apostle Paul explains it:

“11. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” – 1 Corinthians 2:11-14.

5. The Bible is entertaining: I know this doesn’t sound spiritual but it’s a very good reason to read the Bible. It is the word of the Almighty God, so it is very powerful. I have touched on that fact in the post on benefits of reading the Bible cited earlier. We read it devotionally but that does not preclude our enjoyment of its contents. The Bible is not boring at all. It is full of gripping accounts of dramatic events, unvarnished biographies, beautiful poetry and for me, fascinating conversations. Some of the passages I find most captivating in the Bible are the conversations that God, through His prophets, had with the children of Israel. There is love, betrayal, rejection, heartbreak, anger, all kinds of powerful emotions displayed; on other occasions, there is forgiveness, conciliation and assurances of restoration. I just can’t get enough of those accounts and neither can myriads of others! Take a look at this!

“What makes you think I want all your sacrifices?” says the LORD. “I am sick of your burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fattened cattle. I get no pleasure from the blood of bulls and lambs and goats” – Isaiah 1:11 (NLT).
“When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?” – Isaiah 1:12 (NIV)

Then there are the wars and deliverances, the miracles and Passion of Christ, the travails of the apostles in the early church- the Bible is just full of accounts that blow one away. As a writer, I appreciate the craftsmanship of the contents. To make the beauty of the work manifest and improve my understanding of it, I read different translations as I find some passages more graphic and evocative in the King James Version and others more so in contemporary English versions.

The fact that the Bible is entertaining amplifies, rather than prevents, learning from it. Cultivation analysis in mass communication teaches us that entertainment is the most educational fare in any culture. Bible stories have morals which are hard to miss and as I said with respect to its freshness above, I always read the Bible with anticipation because I never know what new lessons I may learn with each reading.

Conclusion:
We are truly one of the blessed generations. Not only do we have God’s recorded word in the Bible, we also have His Spirit living in us to teach us the word, remind us of relevant portions of it as the need arises and imbue that word with life and power to do miracles in and through us. I cannot thank God enough for such a precious gift and I hope this post has ignited, reawakened or reinforced your love for the Scriptures. Let it be so in Jesus’ name.

73 thoughts on “5 AMAZING QUALITIES OF THE BIBLE (that make me read it every day)

  1. Thank you so much, Ma, for sharing this with us. The word of God strengthens us, it encourages us and guides us in all our endeavors. Whenever I read the Bible, I feel the guidance of the Holy Spirit because without that it will just be like reading an ordinary book whereas it’s a means by which God communicates with us.
    When we read the Bible, it’s like having a direct conversation with God.
    The word of God is ever fresh, whenever we read it we tend to learn something new. I must confess that most times when we read the Bible, it feels as if it knows our present situation. In other words, God talks to us about our situation through the Bible.
    The word of God is truly a source of inspiration for me.
    The passage I love most in the Bible is Daniel 6.

    • I get that feeling too, Tochukwu, that God speaks to me about whatever I am going through as I read the Bible. I love the story of Daniel’s rescue from the lions’ den too. You are lifted, my dear, in Jesus’ name.

  2. Yes! The Bible is indeed deep and fresh. Whenever I read the same verse of the Bible over and over again, I see this freshness, like something I have never read before, I get an encounter with a new understanding, a new Wisdom, a new knowledge. I love reading my Bible when I feel weary because it lifts my spirit and hugs me with hope. Thank you ma for letting me know about this piece of work through Facebook. Thank God I read it and am truly blessed.

  3. Yes to all of these things. My absolute fave thing about the Bible though is it is the actual inspired Word of God and that Jesus is the Word come to life. We can supernaturally encounter God in our Bibles and it transforms us.

    • Very true! The power of the word of God is beyond anything we can imagine. You are super blessed in Jesus’ name.

  4. Wow! Great write as always, ma. The Bible is indeed more than a book. It is God revealed in print to teach us, guide our paths, and through this dark world, lead us safely into eternity. I tap from your grace, ma.

    • Glory to God! Although it is already popular, it is still a loss that some may not actually realise what a wonderful resource it is. May the grace upon us for service to God multiply in Jesus’ name.

  5. The word of God is a lamp onto my feet and a light onto my path. The Bible is to my spirit what food is to my body, I feel rejuvenated each time I devote myself to the study of the word.

  6. The bible is a very intresting book but the most outstanding thing i love about it,is that whenever you read it,its word is always new.more grace ma

  7. I was just telling someone the other day how deep and limitless the truths are in Scripture, how every time we read it, we find something new and beautiful.

    • Oh yes, the Bible is limitless in its wisdom and ever fresh. Your remark is worth using in evangelism, Susan, both for reaching the unsaved and rekindling the fire of God’s love in jaded Christians. Sending warm regards to you and your family. <3

    • True, Tiffany! Even one verse can speak to one in different ways on different occasions. May God’s word cheer you up always in Jesus’ name.

  8. I have really learnt a lot today. It’s the truth that the Bible is the most sold book but how much do people read and digest the word???
    The truth is that I hardly read the word but I pray that there would be a change from today. Thanks for ur encouragement, Ma!!

  9. The Bible is an amazing book…not only does it open your eyes to the past, present and future occurrences, it also teaches us wisdom and helps us learn how to live our daily lives.

    Just like we need a manual to operate every new product efficiently, The Bible is like a manual with which humans operate effectively. Without this manual, we are bound to either malfunction or get our life span reduced.

    When we pray, we talk to our creator, but when we read the Bible, we listen to our creator who always has something to tell us.

  10. I agree with you when you say the Bible is not boring at all. It’s like a big book of different stories only that this one has one conclusion! Reading the Bible never gets old. There is always a new insight to glean from it and that’s the special quality it has?. When I open the Bible to read, I’m always pleasantly surprised that I have no difficulty in grasping what the Lord is trying to tell us. It’s no wonder that the Bible is the most read book till today. A fact that I find incredible, looking at what is obtainable in society these days. A truly beautiful write up aunty. Thank you so much

  11. Guardlines to life ,everything we need to leave this life infulfillment are all in the bible.
    The bible is like a mirror it enables us to see our mistake and how to correct it .
    Spiritual and physical growth increases, when we make the bible our number one reading book but quiet unfortunate that i don’t always read it all the time. I pray God help me to change. Amen.

  12. These qualities pointed out are enough reasons why we should study the bible and enrich ourselves with God’s word. As we study it, God provides interpretation in areas we may not understand. Also, studying God’s word gives us knowledge about our belief as Christians. May God give us the grace to continually study his word. Thank you for sharing..

  13. The Bible is our weapon as Christians. It is the word of God itself. We fall back at it when we need to remember his promises to us. May God help and give us the grace to always study his word.

  14. Indeed the Bible is fresh, because it’s feel new every day and at the same time it is a double edge sword that Pierce’s through our hearts, because we need it everyday of our lives.

  15. Indeed the Bible is the Ancient word, ever true. The only book that has fire… God bless you for this amazing write up.

  16. This is amazing! I’ve never read a book as deep and entertaining at the same time as the Bible. And beyond that, it is the only book with the power to cause a change in people’s lives. This is a good motivator to read the Bible. Even though it is one of the oldest books in history, it never gets old; always needed. Nice work, Ma.

  17. The freshness of the Bible is something I just can’t place. It seems to have something for everyone and every generation. No wonder some will say the world is coming to an end as exactly what is in the scripture is playing out in reality. Am equally not surprised the Bible is the most sort after books over the past couple of decades. I only wish these overwhelming number of sales and even more won’t be found missing on the last day as I believe the problem don’t just rest in buying the scripture but also understanding and following its dictates.

  18. One of my favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 3:20 – each time I read it I get a new revelation. The Bible which contains the word of God is truth in itself. It’s candid and vivid nature distinguishes it from others.
    Glory!

  19. The Bible is the most interpretated book in the world, a book filled with awesome wisdom of God, a source of joy and comfort to many in despair.

  20. I agree completely with what you have said. There is no boring time with the Bible. There is always a new discovery to be made and wisdom to get. Thank you for reminding us of other amazing benefits of reading the Bible.

  21. The Bible is an amazing book. In addition to the qualities of bible in this post, Bible is important is equipping us with the knowledge about God. Bible is supposed to be a guiding principle for all Christians.

  22. The bible is one of the oldest and lively book ever .in it is embedded all qualities,lessons we need to know and learn as a Christian to help us grow .Each time you read the bible you learn new lesson every day so it is the best book ever.

  23. The Bible is consistent and straightforward with what it has to say. It is also one of the oldest books even written. It is a history book which means you can never run out of news thing to find and new stories to tell. It also broadens your understanding and wisdom.
    Nice one ma.

  24. The aspect you wrote on the Bible been fresh, I commend it.
    In fact most of the things playing out now in life has happened before in the Bible.

  25. It is beyond human comprehension how everything happening in this world is encoded in the Bible. The scripture is a food for the soul.

  26. I started reading the Bible as an 11 years old boy when my dad sent me on an errand and instead of coming back early I stayed behind to play football, when I came back he didn’t say a word to me he just opened the Bible and asked me to read this particular chapter and verse to read out loud 1 John 1:9 “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it”
    He trashed me and believe me I never tried that again, even if I misbehaved and he shout at me or beat me I see it as training to bring me up in the right way and way of the Lord, I relate the Bible to a journalist who holds a mirror for the world to see through, for us to see through we need to look through the Bible for it is the word of our father, sometimes when I read the Bible I feel as if God was just sitting at a spot and telling me what I do each day, he talks to me each day. Thank you ma.

  27. Ma, the Bible is truly a great teacher. It gives encouragement, hope and life to the weak. But I ask, why is that the Bible is a great preacher of forgiveness and reconciliation but has done nothing on the part of reconciling the misunderstanding between it’s Chief author and his ex servant (God and the devil)? One of the major reasons why some people lead a life of unforgiveness is founded on the fact that God the author of forgiveness still has an unsettled case with his servant.
    I will be needing your opinion on this matter.

    • Hi Ernest! How can you tell other people’s reasons for not forgiving those who wronged them? And I wonder the benefit of the question you are asking. It seems like something designed to consume time that should be usefully engaged in other matters.
      It is arrogance for one to claim that he is not forgiving because God has not forgiven. My questions to such a person are: “Did the devil confess his penitence to you? Are you even equating yourself with God?” Let us understand our status as created beings and humbly obey the dictates of our Maker for our own good, because he who forgives receives peace and healing. Bless you!

  28. There are more points but these ones speaks loud. Truly, the bible speaks to us. When I am depressed or beginning to question a lot of things happening around me, my bible speaks and lifts me up. It is the best motivational book anyone can read because our God fulfills all that He promised. Thank you ma for these wonderful points.

  29. Thank you for this revelation ma. They were times I am confused and sad. Reading the bible and affirming Gods words was what kept me going. The bible indeed is the word of God

  30. The Bible is a weapon when we read and meditate on day day and night, just like what God told His servant Joshua to do if he (Joshua) would be a good leader. There is power in the word of God.

  31. Thank you Jesus ?, I am very happy and privilege to be borned in this time and also given this honor to know your greatest gift.

    Thanks ma , for the word indeed has uplifted my soul.

  32. The Bible is full of accounts that will blow your mind away. The freshness of the Bible is refreshing to the soul. The Bible is coherent as it still speaks to us today and will still speak tomorrow. The deepness of the Bible can’t be fathom unless by the interpretation of the Holy Spirit. There are love, betrayal, rejection incidents that the Bible recorded that are entertaining

  33. The third quality of the bible something I can testify to anytime. The words of the Lord are new every morning, if you read a passage today and read that same passage tomorrow, you will always receive a different message all together. Nice write-up ma.

  34. Thank you Ma’am for this piece. The Bible really performs many functions and answers many life touching questions. The Bible is life.

  35. These qualities of Bible can’t be argued upon because they’re true. Most especially the first quality. It doesn’t sugar-coat words. It throws sinners their sins right on their faces. God bless you ma’am. You’ve blessed us richly with this.

  36. Thank you ma! For often drawing our interest down to things that matters most about God.
    Is only a walking dead that does not read the Bible. Even the devil knows it better, come to think of Christians.
    The Bible is wisdom, all we need to succeed in life is there in the Bible, Is indeed a strong weapon. There is this inner joy we drive in reading the words of God which the Bible contained.
    Is of no surprise that the Bible outsold other books in the world, It has both the qualities and quantity.
    With the Bible we are safe.

  37. The Bible is indeed deep and fresh. Whenever I read the same verse of the Bible over and over again, I see this freshness, like something I have never read before, I get an encounter with a new understanding, a new Wisdom, a new knowledge. Nice piece mam

  38. The bible is the key to all, it teaches how deep and powerful the word of God is. And it is the solution to all human problem.

  39. This post is indeed an eye opener. The bible has something new to say every day. And the Holy Spirit interpretes the words to us. The bible always has an answer to any situation.

  40. Why am I not totally surprised that the Bible is the most selling book in the world. Because for me personally it has transformed my life and I know it has also transform billions of lives. It directs us on how to live our daily lives, the scriptures is simply amazing.

  41. A book written thousands of years ago, by different authors and at different times and places, yet none of the authors contradicted the other. Does that not tell us how candid bible stories are? You’re right, Aunty when you say: “we are truly one of the blessed generations.”

  42. The bible is the most read book in the world, actually its true I see the bible as a heavenly gift to the heart of man. The bible is straight it gives the account of God plans for us, I call the bible a divine manual, In walking a spiritual life. The bible is entertaining is a noticeable outline and perfect criteria of the bible is has amazing history,myths and shows more about our daily life as in extension to the the laws of God. The bible is a holy book that gives us wisdom on the orientation of divinity.

  43. The Bible is one of the greatest books ever written. There’s nothing that happens in this life that we can’t find a solution to or at least draw references from the Bible. We are indeed blessed in this generation and we shouldn’t take the Bible for granted.

  44. I often wonder what would’ve become of man if there was no Bible. It’s the only tangible evidence Christians have about the Trinity. Even though there are prophecies and visions, the Bible gives all these a solid base. A pastor may give his revelations through visions but it’s only the words of God given in accordance with the vision that puts fear or encourages us. The Bible is just too wonderful. I pray to God for the grace to make our Bibles our most devoted companions in Jesus name Amen.

  45. The bible is always fresh and entertaining, some days when I read my bible I am astonished how it can be speaking so directly to me and still comfort me when am down.Gods word is life and ever new..thanks ma for this highlight.

  46. The Bible is a great substance that the father has given. It brings light and freshness into you. It makes one strong, direct and guides ones part. It takes God’s spirit in us to interpret the Bible, it deepness is beyond words. The more you consume His word the more deeper you become like Him and want to go deeper with Him. God’s word is life, truth.

  47. Its no doubt that the bible remains the constitution for Christianity. The life of a Christian is based on the provisions of the Bible. The Bible is indeed the word of God. This post is indeed worth a read.

  48. Its no doubt that the bible remains the constitution for Christianity.
    The life of a Christian is based on the provisions of the Bible. The Bible is indeed the word of God. This post is indeed worth a read.

  49. Words can never express the goodies in the bible. I love to study and as well cogitate on it. In the bible our promises are embedded.

  50. The content of the bible is too powerful, we cannot comprehend it all. It’s the revealer of truth. The only book that gives the true direction to eternity of God and reveals his mind to mankind. It our operational guide line.

  51. I love the Bible, the word of God, my bedrock. I love the Bible, it speaks life to us, it is pillar of support. One quality I really love is that the Bible speaks through us; we are able to understand life and how to go through every situation in life, I mean every single situation at all we find ourselves. Like where taught, read your bible and pray everyday if u want to grow!

  52. The Bible is the only literature that does not have a revised version, the truth in the entire versions of the Bible are the same, the Bible is always evergreen, tell us the truth and satisfies us, there is nothing lacking in the Bible

  53. The Bible is the word of God, I find solace, courage, advice, the will of my father for me and other wonderful treasures which are hidden. I love the Bible.

  54. An undying truth lies in the holy Bible. Any time i open the bible there is this zeal that make you want to read deep into every passage of the bible. This zeal makes you feel like you are looking for something anytime you open the blble.

  55. Yes, indeed the Bible is the most interesting and engaging books ever written or given to man. I like to think that for everyday I open my bible I get a new story or quote or inspiration that helps me with my day to day life. It’s is also food for the Christian for motivation and encouragement.

  56. The Holy Bible is my favorite book, my go to book, it tells me everything I need to know. The Bible helps me feel better most times, when I’m confused or I want to understand something, I refer to my bible and then pray, it directs my steps.
    The Bible also gives words of wisdom and encouragement in the book of proverbs.
    This post has made my day.

  57. The bible God’s words written for our edification,Comfort. Direction, guidance, in fact the bible is all encompassing. Thanks ma for sharing these, it would really encourage a lot of us to read the bible.

  58. My pastor would say the bible is a fathers will to his children. And to know your inheritance, you have to read your fathers will. His wires through the bible connects us to him, abswers our questions and encourages us. I used to feel reluctant to read the bible daily, but I’ll make a conscious effort now to always do.

  59. Wow! Great write as always, ma.The Bible is indeed more than a book. It is God revealed in print to teach us, guide our paths, and through this dark world, lead us safely into eternity.when ever I read the Bible I get physically and emotionally free and peaceful….I can’t stop reading my bible for anything in this world.

  60. Bible is the best book one can ever read. Filled with advise and wisdom which teaches us what to do. The word is God, Bible is a medium God uses to speak to us
