the supreme

the bible

Teaching that lasts—and books that last—will be the kind that “bleed Bible.” C. H. Spurgeon said of John Bunyan, “Prick him anywhere; and you will find that his blood is Bibline, the very essence of the Bible flows from him. He cannot speak without quoting a text, for his soul is full of the Word of God.” God wills that there be human teachers of his divine Word, but he wills that teachers be “full of the Word of God.” The Bible should “flow from them.” Their blood—and their books—should be “Bibline.” (a quote from Iain Murray).

 

 

Would that all we read and hear be the bible, would that all we speak be bible. In a latest poll it was found that more people read the bible than watch football. I guess that’s good thing. But without causing any guilt, do we ever read our bibles enough. If we did we would find our prayers filled with the desires of the bible, our speech more wholesome, even our dreams would be sounder.

 

The Bible is an inexhaustible spring of insight into God and his ways.

 

 

I try to measure all my speaking and writing and living by this standard: Does it spread a passion for the supremacy of God?

 

 

The Bible says, “Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; and let those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Let God be magnified’ ” (Psalm 70:4). In fact, these two things—being glad in God and magnifying God—are not separate things. The banner over every meditation in these devotionals is the conviction that God is most magnified in us when we are most satisfied in him.

 

A deep abiding peace to all who rest in the Word of God.
