Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lantern to my feet and a light upon my path.” There is a reason why more Bibles are sold every year than any other book. It not only talks about eternal salvation, but it lays out a plan for living out our lives here on earth. It gives examples of both right and wrong ways of doing things. It also points out that even when you don’t do everything exactly right, you can still be acceptable before God.
At ordination, an Episcopal priest declares that they believe the Bible to contain all things necessary to salvation. Sometimes when I don’t have a clue about what I’m supposed to do and I yell out, “Oh God, what now?” God’s word can be comforting. It can be challenging. It can place you in God’s presence and help you see that path God has chosen for you to travel. And it is always time well spent reading and contemplating God’s word.
