00069 - Are we desperate for God’s word ?

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

In 1792 a young girl called Mary Jones gave her life to Jesus, she was eight. By 15 she had learned to read and yearned for a Bible of her own. The closest Bible to her was 2 miles away and the closest one for sale in Bala was a 26 mile journey. Having saved for six years, she set off barefoot one morning to walk the 26 miles to purchase one. Her determination led Thomas Charles (who sold her the Bible) to setup the Religious Tract Society that supplied Bibles to Wales, this formed the roots of what we now know to be, the Bible Society.

Psalm 119:105 says, ‘Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path’.

We have so much in our modern lives, yet we often take things like owning and reading a Bible for granted. Why not read yours today!

Quote Wisdom continually flows from the pages of God’s word.

Prayer Heavenly Father, help me not take the Bible for granted, let me find wisdom in your word, Amen.

Action point

When was the last time you read the Bible end to end, why not plan now to read the Bible in a year next year, just search Bible in a year on the internet.
