Psalm 119:11
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” 

Read:  Luke 8:4-15
Memorize:  I John 2:3-5

Your Bible is the greatest book in the world.  It is a book from God, about God.  It was penned by God’s men about how to be God’s men and women. 
It contains the most dramatic and scholarly literature ever known. Within its pages you will find classical stories about:  love, adventure, war, and mystery.  It also contains the very best poetry, history, human relationship, and philosophy. But above all, it gives us God’s plan for the salvation of man.

Christians are a people of His book.  To really know and love our Lord we must know and love the book that reveals Him.  We do not really love God more than we obey Him.  And we do not really obey Him more than we obey His Word.

The Bible is no ordinary book.  It is unique because God is its author.  It was written by men who listen to the voice of God.  It speaks absolute authority because it is the only book of its kind.  The Bible contains one unfolding story:  the drama of redemption.
