I’ve had a little brown Bible since my mother gave it to me in 1984. If you could see it…you would laugh! It is a mess! I have so many Scriptures underlined, I have a few pages that are taped together. I even have a few pages that are completely torn out from my Bible and are simply hanging on by faith!
My Bible is falling apart but my life isn’t! My marriage is great! My relationship with my son is great! My relationship with my staff is great! My relationship with my church is great! My physical health is great! My financial situation is great! My attitude is great! My peace is great! My joy is great! My God-given purpose is great!
Now please don’t mistake me, I didn’t say I don’t have “challenges” to all of those from time to time (see Matthew 7:24-27) but overall my life is great! My Bible, on the other hand, is a mess! I believe those two things are very much correlated. I believe when a Bible is falling apart it indicates a life that isn’t!
In this new series I have a three-pronged goal. I want you to:
- Love the Word!
- Learn the Word!
- Live the Word!
Join us over the next several weeks as we share from the series: Book it! (Because a Bible that is falling apart indicates a life that isn’t!)
