But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. (Deuteronomy 30:14 KJV)

Is it?  Is God’s word close, at all?  Are they where Moses told the people to put them?

Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. (Deuteronomy 11:18 KJV)

How many of the words are in our hearts?  Our souls?

And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: (Deuteronomy 11:20 KJV)

We do have a scripture sign in our yard.  It is a witness to what we believe.  I’ll share the Bible with anyone, even a stranger driving by my house.  Who knows, they may be compelled to think about that scripture.  Perhaps wonder why someone would have scripture publically displayed.

Maybe they’ll place labels upon us.  Pejorative labels, most likely. Something such as “religious fanatic” and I guess they could be right.  I prefer “Christian” and “faithful” instead, but that’s open to interpretation based on personal preferences.  They could call me a “fundamentalist”, and that would be right, too.  I hold membership in the First Baptist Church of Cottondale, near Paradise, Texas.  The church sign tells everyone that it is an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. What we believe is written in the Holy Bible and was preached by Jesus.

The only label I really appreciate is Christian, especially to be called that by someone else:

And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26 KJV)

When people call me Christian, I can believe I’m capable of completing more of Moses’ writing:

And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (Deuteronomy 11:19 KJV)


  1. Continuing to pray for your husband's health and wishing both of you a blessed Advent.

  2. I love, i love , i love His word...keep sharing....


Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
