Psalms 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

I just finished reading a very good book. It was one of those books that’s hard to put down. When I finish reading a book like that I miss it. I wish there were more of it to read. I have an even better book I read. Sometimes it’s very hard to put it down. No matter how many times I read it I always find something I missed the last time. I can read it cover to cover and yet there is always something new. This book is called “The Holy Bible.” If it were the only book every written nothing would be lacking. Other books are nice, entertaining, informative but none of them can be read as many times as the Bible and always bring us to a new truth. If the Bible is not our first picked, most read book we are probably reading a version using words we don’t relate with. There are many translations of this magnificent book. We can go to a bookstore or on the Internet and read various versions to find the one, which is written in our manner of speaking. It is also good for us to have several different translations. Our question is do we really believe this book is written by God through His Holy Spirit? Do we really want to read what He has to tell us? Do we really understand it is His love letter to us? Before I was married we lived in separate states. Long distance calls were expensive so we wrote letters to each other every day, sometimes 2 a day. When I got the letters I would read them over and over. My love was so intense I wanted to take in every word and make it part of me. How intense is our love for God and His Word?
