THE WORD OF GOD

“God’s word is an indispensable weapon”. 

Eph 6:17 EHP 
Over time the phrase “The Word of God” became applied to the Bible. Much of the New Testament had not yet been written when Paul wrote his epistles. The Gospels were written later. In the fifth century A.D. the church gathered the Gospels, Acts and the Epistles together and accorded them the status of “Holy Scripture”- the official documents of the Church. 
The Word of God – with all its problems for modern readers – has been a powerful tool in the life of the Christian Church. One of its great theologians and saints was St Augustine who lived from 354 to 430. “By the age of thirty-three he had tasted every kind of amusement and distraction that the life of the time could offer, from serious study to unbridled lust, but the only result was a mood of self-loathing. In deep distress he flung himself under a tree in his garden in Milan and for hours lay in dark despair, breaking out at last into the agonized cry, ‘How long, O Lord, how long?’ In response he heard a voice clearly saying ‘Take, read’. He jumped to his feet, snatched up his Bible and read: ‘Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof’. ‘No further did I read’, he said, ‘nor needed; for instantly at the end of this sentence a light, as it were of serenity, flooded into my heart and all the darkness of doubt vanished away’” (A.M. Chirgwin, The Bible in World Evangelism, p 20-21). 
People down the ages have read, studied and learnt passages in the Bible, finding hope, inspiration, comfort and salvation in the process. 
You do the same! 

PRAYER THOUGHT Lord, bring peace on all the earth.
