The Word vs. these words

Of the thousands of Christian books written and published none come close to equality with God’s Word. When John 1:1 declares the Word to be Christ Jesus it becomes obvious that knowing His Word goes so far beyond our intelligence that it blows our minds. At the same time God has given us the key to understanding His Word and knowing Him through the Word, Jesus. The key is the Holy Spirit, His gift who dwells in us. It has been said that the more we try to rely on our intellect, the less we will know Him. Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” Jesus didn’t answer, but went to the cross to prove the truth of God, His love for us. Through our faith in believing that His Word is true, we come to know Him as the Truth. We can rely on this because He is faithful and can be trusted. I am amazed at the number of Christian books that are published each day. I’ve discovered that it becomes a challenge when it comes to getting many people to read your book. We can’t read them all, nor should we, but all authors obviously feel that their book should be included in the must read list, because they believe it’s message is important. I certainly feel that way about Transformation The Servant’s Heart–A Life of Faith. If I didn’t feel that way, I certainly would have wasted my time, effort and money in publishing it. Transformation is not intended to compete with the Bible, but it is intended to lead someone in that direction. Some readers have commented on how much scripture is in the book, but as I continue to study the Bible I run across verses that I wish I had included, but didn’t. The subject of pride is constantly reminding me how subtle it is, but I want to say that I’m not being proud when I say that some readers have read Transformation and had changes in their lives for the good. What I am is thrilled beyond measure. That is one intent, but the better hope is that many will be directed to His Word, that it’s just a step in the right direction. May my words point to His Word.
