The KJV - 400 years old this week, but still alive and powerful!
This week is the 400th anniversary of the Authorized Version, the King James Bible.
History is replete with the stories of those whose blood was shed to put the Word of God into the hands of common people and in their own language.
We should all love the Word, list to it, learn it, live it and long for it.
It is our life, our bread, our water, our honey, our milk and our meat.
It is a sharp two-edged sword, a mirror, a hammer and a fire.
The Word comforts us, guides us, instructs us, convicts us, reproves us and corrects us.
God’s holy Word is our manual for life, God’s love letter to us and His revelation of Himself to us.
Andrew Jackson stated: “That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.”
And since the Scriptures have made us wise unto salvation (II Ti 3:15), and since we are born again by the incorruptible seed of the Word of God (I Pe 1:23), then it is the rock upon which our souls rest.
Read your Bible today and be blessed by its timeless truths!
