Four Things to Do With the Bible

The reading and reflection of God’s Word the Bible always helps, sustains and blesses us. During the end of last year, I was always so encouraged when people wrote me a card with a Bible sentence or two written in it. What a gift of encouragement to bring a promise of God to our attention!

The Australian preacher Peter Adam writes: “If the Bible is not known, Christ is not known, and if Christ is not known, then God is not known.” – what can be more important than knowing God?

A classic Charles Spurgeon quote I love: “A Bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone whose life is not.”

I was delighted by this new statement I just discovered from William Wilberforce, the great 19th century Church of England evangelical and campaigner against the slavery:

“There are four things that we ought to do with the Word of God – admit it as the Word of God, commit it to our hearts and minds, submit to it, and transmit it to the world.”

Can you remember the four?

Admit it – Commit it – Submit to it – Transmit it!

The person who is growing in God’s word, will be growing in Christ, growing in prayer and growing in mission. Let us do this together!

Your Pastor,
