It’s hard to put into words.  Powerful would be one of the words.  Incredible, another.  Overwhelming, yes.  Others would be moving, stunning, or even humbling.  But the word I’ll choose is grateful.  While on vacation this past week, Tina and I were able to visit the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., and all the above words describe the time there, but I’m sticking with grateful.  As we visited floor after floor, display after display, six and a half hours of walking, standing, sitting, looking, reading, shaking my head, and saying, “Tina, look at this!”, a singular thought kept running through my mind: “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8).  To me, it wasn’t just a visit to a museum.  As I followed the giving and preservation of God’s word through the millennia, it was a reminder of how grateful I should be that God has given us His word.  A word that is true, a word that is reliable, a word that is enduring, a word that is eternally settled, and because of all that, a word that is worth believing and following.  Those old, faded documents, copies, notes, and early printed Bibles stood as a testimony to the Truth that never grows old, never fades, and never changes.  Let’s never take for granted the gift of God’s word.  Yes, grateful is a good word.  And I am.
