A poem: We need the Bible

2 Timothy 3:15-16 "and that from childhood you have knownthe sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness."

We need the Bible
a poem

When I behold a Bible, aged and worn
With pages folded, marked and torn
I know the person that has read it much
With His Savior he keeps in touch

The binding may be loose, and edges frayed
The pages yellowed with colors that fade

Yet I know that faith has been bound
The vision of Christ is clear and sound

As the pages turned and underlines made
The reader found comfort, light and aid

Some may scoff at the frailty of the book
Its cover is cracked and not pretty to look

Yet God's Word is precious and never grows old
Its contents are power, more precious than gold

To read the Bible is to have it read you
It penetrates the soul with light that is true

I hear the words preached, and my heart melts away
The Spirit has won and gotten His way

The words of that book can overcome strife
The words are power, comfort and life

We need the Bible, for in it we see
Jesus who came for you and me
