Where’s the Bible?

October 15, 2017

Just as words mean something, so do things and where we literally place them.

Churches tend to put a very large Bible on the altar table up front. It’s a good way to remind people of the centrality of Scripture.

But one church I served before retiring didn’t do that.

For quite some time before I arrived, their Bible had been on the lectern. On the reading stand. Where the worship leader stood. Not on the altar for all to see.

I was shocked and appalled.

Then I stood there to lead worship and experienced the brilliance of that.

It happened when I glanced down at the bulletin and my notes for that service.

They were resting on The Bible.

Get that: every announcement, every detail of the service and the entire corresponding life of the church, stood on Scripture.

Actually took my breath away. I actually gasped.

Remember this song? How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

Yup.
