There are a lot of excellent books out there to help you grow in your Christian walk. I’m a big fan of Max Lucado, for instance, and we were just talking in Sunday School about Gary Chapman’s The Five Love Languages, and the incredible devotional My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers (which I worked my way through last year). And I’m even trying to write a couple books that I pray will help bring someone to, or closer to, Christ. And I’m sure all you FaithWriters are attempting to do the same – because that’s what Christian writers do.

But there’s only one Book we really need to grow in Christ. And the words in that Book are old – ancient, to be exact. They were written thousands of years ago. But they aren’t outdated, trite, or boring.

There’s a song I hear on occasion that always brings this thought to the forefront. The words are beautiful- but the message even more so. The lyrics to this song are not ancient – but they do bring me to a Book that is.

Heavenly Father, thank You for giving us Your Words, the ancient words that speak to us today. Help us to remember that there is no book like Yours, and to heed it. In the name of Your precious Son I pray. Amen.
