The Invisible Bible

Weekly Devotional

The impact of the Bible in the history of man is remarkable. Most books from the ancient past are hardly ever read. 

Yet, the Bible, though thousands of years old, remains at the top of the list of best sellers each year. This fact alone should help us marvel that our schools have removed the Bible from our classrooms. In many places, a teacher cannot even have a copy of it on their desk. 

What a tragic mistake!

Every year over 100,000,000 copies of the Bible are sold or given away freely in our world. Statistics tell us that 9 out of every 10  homes in America have at least one Bible in it. It has been translated into nearly 350 languages. 

Yet, there is something far more remarkable than the facts just given. There is a Bible so "small" that it is impossible to be seen. Its impact is also greater and has more influence than all the Bibles ever printed. Consider these words describing the Bible.

 "Your word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you." (Psalm 119:11)

 "Written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is of the heart. ( II Corinthians 3:3) 

This Bible is invisible to the eye of any mortal, but is seen daily in the lives of His people. What kind of story are you telling by the life that you live. Do you have your Bible on a shelf in your home or hidden in your heart?
