Today is we are celebrating The International Day of The Bible. So thankful today for I am reminded how much God has been speaking to me personally and change my life through the power of His Word. There are so many ways we can read God’s word: books, online, or even on any smart phone and tablets. He has provided these many ways for us to get connected with Him, to hear His voice every moment.
And celebrating this day, I would like to share 3 highlights and prayer requests:
1. Giving thanks to God, the Father who have given each of us access to His living word that changing our lives to become like His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. We can read His word in every moment. We can understand well what God says to us because He speaks clearly in language we can understand. With understanding His word in the Bible given by the Holy Spirit, we are led by Him to do what pleases His and obey Him in love.
2. It is time to pray more for those who do not have the privilege and access to His word like we do:
– Pray for Christians who live under circumstances where they cannot read or even cannot have the Bible because of persecution and political situations in countries where they live.
– Pray for those who have not yet have God’s word in languages they can understand best.
– Pray for those who have not yet heard of God’s Good News at all,
3. It is time for for God’s people & churches to take action and have courage to go preaching the Good News and contribute in works to bring the Good News of the Kingdom to these people who have been waiting for so long to hear voice of The Living God. Pray that God will continue opening the ways and sending His people to reach out to these Bibleless and Unreached people groups around the world.
