Treasuring the Word of God

I watched this video yesterday and it ROCKED MY WORLD. You do not have to watch the entire thing to walk away changed, just watch the first 5 minutes of it. Notice the enthusiasm these people have as they anticipate receiving the Bible in their language. Listen to the prayer the elder man prays around the 3 minute mark as they receive the Bibles. Watch how grown men weep as their people receive God's Word for the first time in their community.

Question: do we treasure the Word of God in this way? In what ways does this make you grateful for having God's Word and how will it move you to engage it more?

  1. Wow! I guess I have always taken the fact that I have a Bible available to me for granted! I can't even imagine not being able to read God's word! To see them so excited and happy to recieve such a gift, grown men crying, I had cold chills through the whole video. Thank you for posting this. We really are so fourtunate and blessed!
