The “illuminated” Bible?

The “illuminated” Bible?

You may read the Bible continuously and yet never learn anything by it, unless it is illuminated by the Spirit.

Then the words shine forth like stars. Then the book seems made of gold leaf; every single letter glitters like a diamond.

Oh! it is a blessed thing to read an “illuminated Bible”lit up by the radiance of the Holy Spirit.

Have you read the Bible, and yet have your eyes been unenlightened? Go and say, “O Lord, illuminate it; shine upon it; for I cannot read it to profit, unless You enlighten me.”

Blind men may read the Bible with their fingers, but blind souls cannot.

We need a light to read the Bible by; there is no reading it in the dark.

  1. Love that last line!!

    • Hey Paul! 😀

      This quote is a much better description of the one i usually say, lol. I use the picture of the scene from “The Never Ending Story” when the boy opens the book and the light shines out and he is totally lost in Wonder. That’s what the Bible does with me, even after 12 years, God is Amazing. 😀

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
