The Bible is like a love letter to us from God and as Paul Little, professor of evangelism at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, once noted: ‘The people that God used to record His words in the Bible were themselves uncommonly moved by them.’ They said the Word of God is:

  • honey in my mouth (Ezekiel 3:3)
  • spiritual food for the hungry (Job 23:12)
  • a lamp for my feet (Psalm 119:105)
  • a joy and delight to my heart (Jeremiah 15:16)
  • more precious than gold (Psalm 19:10)
  • sharper than a two-edged sword penetrating my thoughts and attitudes (Hebrews 4:12)
  • perfect and trustworthy… a great reward (Psalm 19:7, 11)
