Hope in the Heartland
Pastor, Peabody Bible Church
I keep a library on my desk. Often I carry that same library with me in my hand, in my book bag, on the passenger seat of my car, and other places. I have even been known to take the whole thing into a hospital when visiting a sick friend. I even tote it with me to my Sunday school class. Afterward, it goes with me to the worship service.
I keep an identical library at home.
It’s just plain handy and quite affordable, too.
The reason that I lug this college of “books” from place to place is because it is a gift from a dear friend. The collection contains 66 books that are more relevant than today’s news. I find out more about my friend, my world, and myself when I access this wonderful assortment of literal history, poetry, prophecy, and some of the greatest stories ever recorded.
My friend is God and the collection He gave me is the Bible. He has one for you, too.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
