Open Your Bible App This Morning…

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17

There used to be a time in America where the Word of God was highly revered. Preachers would ask congregants to stand as the Word was read. People would tote their Bibles to church every Sunday; now they keep it on an app in their back pockets.

It’s not wrong necessarily, just a different way of viewing and treating the Bible.

Is the Bible read more in an app than on the physical page? Who’s to know? Only we as individuals can know that (plus the app manufacturer who is keeping digital records for their usage).

The Word of God is powerful. It’s certainly more powerful when it’s read and correctly applied regardless of how or when we’re able to access it.
