I’m not sure how you feel about your Bible, but I hope you see it for the treasure that it is. Hear these words from David, “The law of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of coins of gold and silver. . . . Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. . . . How sweet are Your words to my taste; sweeter than honey to my mouth” (Ps. 119:72, 97, 103)! Years ago I came across the following from an unknown author and it so vividly depicts that precious book that I wanted to share it with you. Read it, mediate on ii and then journey through the temple of God’s revelation.
Many years ago I entered the wonderful temple of God’s revelation. I entered the Portico of Genesis and walked down through the Old Testament art gallery where the pictures of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David and Daniel hung on the way.
I entered the Music Room of Psalms where the spirit swept the keyboard of nature and brought forth the dirge and wail of the “weeping prophet,” to the grand impassioned strains of Isaiah, until it seemed that every reed and harp in God’s great organ of nature responded to the tuneful touch of David, the sweet singer of Israel.
I entered the Chapel of Ecclesiastes where the voice of “the preacher” was heard, and into the Conservatory of Sharon, and the “Lily of the Valley’s” sweet-scented spice filled and perfumed life.
I entered the Business Office of Proverbs and passed into the Observatory Room of the Prophets where I saw many telescopes of various sizes, some pointing to far-off events, but all concentrating on the “Bright and Morning Star” which was to rise over the moonlit hills of Judea for our salvation.
I entered the Audience Room of the “King of Kings” and caught a vision from the standpoint of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
I passed into the Acts of the Apostles where the Holy Spirit was doing his office work in the formation of the infant church, and into the Corresponding Room where sat Paul, Peter, James, Jude and John penning their epistles.
I stepped into the throne of Revelation where all towered into glittering peaks, and I got a vision of the King seated upon His throne in all glory, and I cried, “Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.”
