The Word

I have my great uncle’s Bible, published in 1896. 

For him, it was a guiding light, I am sure. 

Though tattered and worn, I cherish it, knowing that through the ages, God’s word in scripture has been alive for all people, proclaiming His love for eternity. 

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

—Hebrews 4:12

  1. Precious truth, not just the sentimentality. I have one of my father’s Bibles, each of my siblings received one of his worn Bibles. I also am blessed to have my grandfathers ministers manual, in German. They are a testament of persevering love, sacrifice and faithfulness. Thanks so much for sharing this treasure.

      Thank you for sharing about your family’s legacy of faith. It is really about persevering love, sacrifice and faithfulness, as you said. I remember my grandmother’s faith and also my mom’s. God is a God of the living. 🙂
