The BIBLE: It contains the mind of God, the state of man,  the way of salvation, the fate of sinners  and the happiness of believers. It is a light to  direct you, food to nourish you, and comfort  to cheer you. It is a mine of incredible wealth and a river of genuine joy. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding,  its histories are true and its decisions are immutable. Christ is its grand subject, your good  –its design, and the glory of God, its end. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practise it to be spiritually healthy. Read it  slowly, frequently and prayerfully. Let it fill  your memory, rule your heart, and guide your steps. ~ Author Unknown
