The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man,
the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and the security of
the believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding,
its decisions are immutable. Read it to believe, believe it to
be secure, practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct
you, food to support you and comfort to encourage you. It is
the traveler's guide, the pilgrims's staff, the pilot's compasss,
the soldier's sword and the Christian's charter. Here paradise
is restored, heaven opened and the gates of hell disclosed.
Christ is its grand subject, our good its design and the glory
of God its end. It should fi ll the memory, rule the heart and
guide the feet. Read it slowly, daily and prayerfully. It is a
mine of wealth, a paradise of glory and a river of joy. It is
given you in life, will be opened at the judgement and will
be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility,
will reward the greatest labor and will condemn all who
trifl e with its contents.
