It is one of the saddest effects of the fall that over time the greatest wonders in the world become routine. The first day among the Alps we are speechless with wonder. By the end of the week, we’re playing video games. This reality is a great human tragedy.

So it is with the Bible. It is an immeasurable wonder that God has given us an inspired book containing the truth about himself and his ways and what he wills for our lives. If it had not been around for two thousand years, stocked in every bookstore, found in hotel drawers, courtrooms, mobile apps — if it arrived today, we would either write it off as a ludicrous myth, or we would bow down in worship and scarcely dare to touch it.

As you watch this video, ask God to restore the wonder.

God’s handiwork in the heavens is telling the glory of God (Psalm 19:1). God’s Son, by the incarnation, is showing the glory of God (John 1:14). God’s act at Calvary reveals the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:4).

And God’s book is the window where the truth about all the glory shines most fully and most brightly. No glory would be seen for what it is without this Book. There is no other window like it. You may run by a thousand glories. But until you come to this window, none will shine like they do here.

We pray this feature video, God Wrote a Book, will inspire you to run well in the word of God.
