I am so thankful to have the freedom to be able to enjoy all of the Bible, and the Message in both text and audio formats, and the ability to access any of It anytime I want in my own language. We don’t realize how blessed we are sometimes… may It never become common to us!
Many fought, and suffered to grant us this freedom which we did not always have.
There was a time not so long ago when only the priest was able to have access to the Word in a language that the common people could not read or understand.
Millions still today do not have the privilege that we are granted, due to the lack of religious freedom in their country, or the shortage of available material in their own language.
Now that we have been blessed with this great honor, and responsibility, what will we do with It?
Will we let It sit on our shelves, or study It only to try to prove others wrong? Or will we make It a part of our daily lives so that others will see Christ living in us, and working through us?
“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men” (II Corinthians 3:2)
