Reading the Bible Sermon Illustrations

Christian, wheresoe'er you are—read the Word and pray;
Make God's Word your guiding star—still read —still pray.
Keep your Bible near at hand,
Whether you're on sea or land,
Speak with God just where you stand—
Read the Word, and pray.

When you've nothing much to do—read the Word and pray;
When you're very busy too—still read—still pray.
When the world with many toys
Its seductive arts employs,
Would you taste of heavenly joys?
Read the Word and pray.

When your patience has been tried—read the Word and pray;
When you feel self-satisfied—still read—still pray.
When you're happy, when you're sad,
When some trial you have had,
This will make your spirit glad—
Read the Word and pray.

Daily, if you'd win the fight—read the Word and pray;
Every morning, every night—still read—still pray.
Then you'll see the Savior's face,
Full of Glory, full of Grace,
Shining out in every place;
Read the Word and pray.

Toiling up the Heavenly road—still read—still pray;
This will ease your heavy load—still read—still pray.
Feet are hastened, hearts are joyed,
Fears are quelled and doubts destroyed.
Christ Himself fills every void—
Read the Word and pray.—Frank Gilbert
