What Do You Think of This Book?

How much do we love the Word of God? How much do we conform our lives to the teaching of the Scriptures by faith? The Scriptures speak a lot of our attitude toward the Word of God and we must be faithful in loving the Scriptures as much as the Scriptures require of us!

O! How love I thy law, it is my meditation all the day!

How thankful we should be that we have the pure Word of God reliably translated into our Mother Tongue! To the multitudes of Jesus' day Christ said, Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, but to us He can exclaim: Ye may read what God hath said. This is a wondrous and inestimable privilege- purchased by the blood shedding of many of our forefathers- that the Holy Scriptures are no longer confined to the learned and the abbot of the monastery. They are accessible to the unlearned and the poor, everywhere in simple English. But such a privilege carries with it, my reader, a solemn responsibility. What use are we making of this precious treasure? Do we search it daily as did the noble Bareans? Are we nourishing our souls thereby? Is our conduct governed by its teaching? Is not, double guilt lies at our door. -Arthur Pink
