The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
It is given to make us humble, holy, wise in spiritual things; to direct us in our duties, to relive us in our temptations, to comfort us under troubles, to make us love God and to live unto him…. Unto this end there is a more glorious power and efficacy in one epistle, one psalm, on chapter, than in all the writings of men…. He that hath not experienced hereof is a stranger unto the power of God in the Scripture…sometimes an occasional passage in a story, a word or expressions, shall contribute more to excite faith and love in our souls than a volume of learned disputations…. -John Owen
GMTB PURPOSE: To "declare the supremacy of Christ and the sufficiency of his Word to the extremities of the earth." You and I were created to discover and delight in the glory of God in the face of Christ. God reveals that glory through His inspired and infallible Book. As His Spirit opens the eyes of our hearts, we are enabled to see divine truth that is so real and wonderful that our lives are transformed into a miracle of God’s grace. We pray that the resources provided here will be used by God to give you a new, robust and radical faith in Jesus Christ and his promises. May you find Jesus so precious in his Word that you become, “homo unius libri, “a man of one Book.”
