|To God And The Word Of His Grace by Goshen360(m): 4:22am On Jun 01, 2012|
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them who are sanctified. Acts 20:32
The Bible is not an amulet, it is not a charm, not a fetish, it is not a book that will work wonders by its very presence. It is a book that will work wonders in every life, here and hereafter, if acted upon and obeyed in faith and sincerity. It is God's inspired revelation of the origin and destiny of all things, written in the most simple human language possible so that the most unlearned can understand and obey its teachings. It is self-interpreting and covers every subject of human knowledge and need, now and forever.
It is the book that reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts binding, its histories true and its decisions immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe and practice it to be holy. The Bible contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword and the Christian's charter.
In it is heaven opened and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our good is its design and the glory of God its end. It should fill your memory, rule your heart and guide your feet in righteousness and true holiness. Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully, meditatively, searchingly, devotionally and study it constantly, perseveringly and industriously. Read it through and through until it becomes part of your being and generates faith that will move mountains.
The Bible is a mine of wealth, the source of health and a world of pleasure. It is given to you in this life, will be opened at the judgment and will stand forever. It involves the highest responsibilities, will reward the least to the greatest of labour and will condemn all trifle with its sacred contents.

Is a religion ever mentioned in the Bible? or what about all those denominations?
