I have a copy of Class Notes on Romans, written by the late Roy H. Lanier, Sr. On the front cover of that book is this amazing poem of praise for God’s Word. Please read it and think about the VALUE of the Bible, and please be sure not to stand Self-Condemned…
The Bible is a message of instruction; a message of warning; and it is a message of hope.
All men everywhere should rejoice at hearing and understanding that message.
It is a light to our feet, a chart for the traveler, and a compass for the sailor.
It is food for the soul, balm for the aching heart, and medicine for the sick.
It is a sword for the soldier, seed for the sower, and a girdle for the weary.
It comforts the sorrowing, encourages the faint, and gives hope to the discouraged.
It rebukes the ungodly, reproves the negligent, and corrects the wanderer.
It is to be studied in life, cherished in death, and answered in the judgment.
Let us rejoice in every opportunity we have to read it, appreciate every explanation we hear of it, and put into practice every lesson we learn from it.
To obey it is to build on the Rock eternal.
To disobey it is to build on the shifting sand.
To neglect to learn it is to stand self-condemned.
As part of a larger discussion online, I ran across a very thoughtful poem. It is entitled: “Bar,” and was written by the famous author: Anonymous. I Googled it, but found no answer as to the poet. If you know, please inform me.
