Desperate to read the Bible
Posted: 19 Mar 2012 05:24 AM PDT
In preparing for the message on Sunday I came across this story – it really hit home to me. I have so many opportunities and resources to read the Bible, but do I always make the most of them? Read this story and see what it says to you:
A man in Kansas City was severely injured in an explosion. Evangelist Robert L. Sumner tells about him in his book The Wonders of the Word of God. The victim’s face was badly disfigured, and he lost his eyesight as well as both hands. He was just a new Christian, and one of his greatest disappointments was that he could no longer read the Bible. Then he heard about a lady in England who read braille with her lips. Hoping to do the same, he sent for some books of the Bible in braille. Much to his dismay, however, he discovered that the nerve endings in his lips had been destroyed by the explosion. One day, as he brought one of the braille pages to his lips, his tongue happened to touch a few of the raised characters and he could feel them. Like a flash he thought, I can read the Bible using my tongue. At the time Robert Sumner wrote his book, the man had “read” through the entire Bible four times.
Let’s not assume that we will always have the time, resources or opportunity to read the Scriptures. Let’s make TODAY count.
