Joshua the son of Nun and one of the great servants of God in the book of the same name chapter Joshua 1:8 admonished the Israelites over whom he became a leader to meditate on the word of God as contained in the Bible day and night, likening it to a two headed sword with which every mountain can be surmounted. Same advice was repeated by Jesus Christ and the Apostles.
The Bible is a collection of books detailing the works of creation, the laws and guiding principles to our everyday day living as ordained by God and recorded through inspiration by various writers. As Christians, and followers of Christ who desire a true walk and worship with God, the Holy Bible should be our most prized possession, it should be our can’t –do-with item.
It is abnormally becoming fashionable to see many believers going to church without the body of the word of God, rather than take the Holy Bible to church; we are cool with taking our tablets and other mobile devices which in our blind state desecrate the temple of His holiness.
When it is time for warfare to face the battle head-on, what is that weapon that you have at your disposal to raise to the holy of holies as a sword against the devil and its soldiers? Hmmm, of what help will a tablet or any mobile device filled with all sorts of abominable filthy materials be to you as against the Holy Bible that abhors no virus?
Let us quit being romantic with technology when it comes to the sacred things of God, don’t replace your Holy Bible, the word of God with your tablet of any such device that will not come to your aid when the time to lift up the sword of the Lord arises.
A word, they say, is enough for the wise!
