Just Use Me

Most of us resent being “used,” but here is something which could change the world, and it is crying out to be used: Just use me—I am the Bible. I am God’s wonderful library. I am always—and above all—the Truth. To the weary pilgrim, I am a good strong staff. To the one who sits in gloom, I am a glorious light. To those who stoop beneath heavy burden, I am sweet rest. To him who has lost his way, I am a safe guide. To those who have been hurt by sin, I am healing balm. To the discouraged, I whisper glad messages of hope. To those who are distressed by the storms of life, I am an anchor. To those who suffer in lonely solitude, I am a cool, soft hand resting on a fevered brow O, child of man, to best defend me, just use me! If you have not yet discovered that wonderful book we call the Bible, it’s time you did. In the words of Samuel to Saul, “Stop here yourself for a while, that I may make known to you the Word of God” (1 Sam. 9:27).

Lord be with you,

Bro. Harry Shomaker
