We also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:13
1 Thessalonians 2:13-20 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=%201%20Thessalonians%202:13-20&version=NKJV )
According to Wikipedia’s list of best-selling books, Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities is history’s top novel, followed by The Lord of the Rings, The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince), and The Hobbit — each selling more than 100 million copies.1 But none of those compare with the circulation or impact of the Bible, which is by far the most widely distributed book on earth and in history.

If you’re facing a crisis, how much strength do you find in A Tale of Two Cities? If you need spiritual encouragement, do you turn to The Lord of the Rings? These may be enjoyable reads, but they can’t bring salvation to our hearts, life to our souls, strength to our spirits, or heaven to our pathways. While we treasure the heritage of good literature, only one book is given by inspiration of God.
Welcome, read, and obey the Bible each day not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which also effectively works in those who believe.
