2 Kings 20:1-21:18; Lamentations 1:1-22; 1 Timothy 4:1-16

Making the word of God of none effect. Mark 7:13

The car radio was on and it was an interesting interview with
a leading British politician, who was also a member of the Anglican
synod. At one stage he responded to a question by saying that
“The Bible was the handmaiden of the church”. Sadly many may
believe such a statement. Yet that is to reduce the Bible gravely and
to make it of none effect. Authority does not lie with the church but
with the revealed will of God in the Bible. It is the Word of God
that should govern all aspects of the life and belief of the Christian.
Let us submit to its precepts today. —Paul Young

Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken;
Lose not its precepts, so precious and pure;
Souls that are sleeping its tidings awaken;
Life from the dead in its promise sure. —M. J. Smith
