What is the Bible?

I was asked to write a paragraph based on this question: What is the Bible?  This came out instead.

The Bible is
The unparalleled 
The infallible
The unfailing
and eternal word of God

The Bible is a lamp for my feet
A guide to my path
A sure anchor for my soul
A comfort in times of trouble
and a rebuke in times of selfishness

Through the Bible God
Speaks to me
Teaches me
Tells me he loves me
and shows me what love really is

In the Bible I see
My sinfulness
And His holiness
My shame
and His Glory

But the Bible tells me that
Despite my unworthiness
Christ died for me
Christ was raised for me
and Christ will come again for me

God used the Bible to
To convict me 
To humble me
To bring me low
So that He may raise me up

Now I use the Bible
To feed on
To gain strength from
Until I am called to be with Him
Or He returns to be with us

  3. I linked this posting to my blog. I think I'm going to print it out and keep a copy in my bible!

    Welcome back. I took a brief hiaitus for SWAT training over the was a good break. It's always good to break away from things for a while. Welcome back at your own pace, brother!!!
