Bible?

What is keeping you from your Bible?

Seriously? You have a Bible (or more). You can read (some of you in 2 tongues). You have the same 24 hours a day that your sainted grandpa, aunt, parent etc. had. God did not arrange it so that you’d miss His illustrious Book but the enemy of your soul is tempting you to omit It or slight It. Are you on God’s side or satan’s?

Books are made of mere paper,

Grammatically smeared with ink.

They can be destroyed by fire,

Or by water, one might think.

But there is a Book whose words

Transcending cover and page 

Will survive catastrophe,

Outlasting the latest age.

“Learning I love, – learned men I prize, – with the company of the great and good I am often delighted; but, infinitely above all these and all other possible enjoyments, I glory in Christ, – in me living and reigning, and fitting me to his heaven.” 

                – Quoted from a letter to Mr. Drew, Clarke’s Christian Theology, with life of the author, by Samuel Dunn,                                     from a 1967 Schmul reprint.

 Adam Clarke died this date, 8/26/1832 * in London, England.  He was a Methodist clergyman, scholar and the author of an eight volume commentary on the Bible.  Clarke’s years from 1810 to 1826 were spent producing this famous and trustworthy work.

He was born in Moybeg (near Colerain) Ireland in 1760 (his Scottish mother said), 1763 (his “English” father said).  His diplomas include A. M. and LL. D. from the University and Kings College, Aberdeen.

* at least two other days in August are also given (16th & 28th)

“Take Time to Be Holy”

 

Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

 

Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

 

Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide;
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.

 

Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.
