How Much Should We Revere God’s Word, and Should Bible Pages Be Marked Up?

November 01, 2017 at 6:35 am by Scott Roberts

should-bible-pages-be-marked-upWhen I was a teenager, I was taught by my mom to revere the Bible. It was good that she instilled in me a healthy respect for Holy Scripture, as it is, of course, the inspired Word of God; here is 2 Timothy 3:16-17, which I often quote: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” [emphasis mine] In doing so, my mother perhaps took this reverence thing a little too far. She stressed to me to never place other over books physically on top of any Bible. For example, if I were carrying a pile of books or resting them on a table, and a Bible was one of them, then God’s Word needed to always on top and out in front. To do otherwise was to show great disrespect…

Let’s face a sobering fact: We as followers of Jesus now dwell in a post-Christian world. In Western society, we are no longer the majority, therefore when it comes to related sociological constructs such as marriage, sex, politics, and morality in general, Christians – especially those of us in America – are losing the influence we once had in decades past.

So how are we as believers supposed to interact in society that’s exponentially growing and promoting things that are the antithesis of Christian thought and Christian values? That is a blazingly wonderful concept definitely is begging for more coverage in books and sermons.

David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons try to tackle this matter in their book “Good Faith: Being a Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant and Extreme.” Do they succeed at giving this crucial topic it deserves? Read on to find out…

John Bevere’s Driven by Eternity: Making Your Life Count Today & Forever  is not for the spiritually squeamish. Yet it contains a message that has eternal consequences for everyone.

Too many people think it’s okay to recite the “Sinner’s Prayer,” ask Jesus to come into their hearts, and then go back to living their old lives without even thinking about developing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Yes, it is faith that saves us, but as James chapter 2 says, “faith without works is dead.” Driven By Eternity urges you to start LIVING for Christ, and not just being complacent and living a lukewarm (or even cold) life here on earth…
