Clean Because Of God’s Word
William Culbertson wrote, "I recall reading a sentence from George Henderson: ‘The Bible is unlike any other book, in that one must personally know its Author before one can really understand its contents; it resembles other books in that to be understood it must be read, to be known it must be studied.’
"If there is in our hearts any aspiration for holiness – if, implanted by the Holy Spirit, there is a deep desire for Christlikeness – then we can be absolutely sure that the Holy Spirit will lead us to make much of the Word of God. No one who has at his disposal the blessed Book of God and who neglects that Book can be a strong, holy Christian."
D. L. Moody used to inscribe in the front of his Bible, "This Book will keep me from sin, or sin will keep me from this Book."
"Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee" (Psa. 119:11).
