Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth—- Eph. 6:14
Many of us learned to spell the Bible before we could read it because of a simple song learned in Vacation Bible School or Sunday school: “The B-I-B-L-E. Yes, that’s the book for me.” Though childish in nature, that song gives us truth for a lifetime.
First, it teaches that the Bible is a book for me, providing what I need to be “wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15 NIV). It tells me of creation, redemption, pardon, peace, purpose, and eternal life. In other words, it tells of Jesus.
Second, it teaches us to take our stand on the Word of God as a basis for lifelong wisdom. When we stand on the truth of Scripture, we’re on solid ground, not quicksand, and we have a foundation for life.
Third, we must “stand alone” on God’s Word. That has a double meaning: We stand only on God’s Word, and we must sometimes take our stand alone because no one else will join us. If you’re standing alone today, don’t be discouraged. Just sing and read the B-I-B-L-E.
The B-I-B-L-E. Yes, that’s the book for me. I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E.
