Did you know God’s Word is indestructible?
Many ancient books have been lost to history. Others sit still buried under the sands of the Middle East. But after thousands of years, the Bible is more widely read than ever.
Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
There’s an interesting story in the Old Testament book of Jeremiah. We are told that the wicked king of Judah didn’t like the Word given by God to the prophet, so he threw it in the fire! But God simply had Jeremiah do it again, and today we have the story recorded in our Bibles.
Whenever men decide they want to get rid of the Bible, whether in Nazi Germany or today in countries where dictators hurt their own people, God’s Word survives, and finds its way into the hands of more people.
A God who can do that is the true God, and the only One worthy of worship!
Lord, your Word is something we can’t get away from, even when we are rebellious. Thank you for preserving your Word so that we all have access to it. Amen.
