A Clear Message
By Billy Graham • July 5
The law of the Lord is perfect . . .
The Bible is the constitution of Christianity. Just as the United States Constitution is not of any private interpretation, neither is the Bible of any private interpretation. Just as the Constitution includes all who live under its stated domain, without exception, so the Bible includes all who live under its stated domain, without exception. God’s laws for the spiritual world are found in the Bible. Whatever else there may be that tells us of God, it is more clearly told in the Bible. Nature in her laws tells us of God, but the message is not too clear. It tells us nothing of the love and grace of God. Conscience, in our inmost being, does tell us of God, but the message is fragmentary. The only place we can find a clear, unmistakable message is in the Word of God, which we call the Bible.
Prayer for the day
How I pray that the world would live by Your law—which bears no discrimination but is perfect. Teach me as I read the Bible to follow Your commandments which are not impossible to obey because of Jesus Christ’s love.
