What It Looks Like When You Open Your Bible For the Very First Time

  1. The Word appears to have been smuggled in, in suitcases, and the people cry over the receiving. Meanwhile, in the U.S. “Get those crosses down, don’t say Jesus, expel that bible thumping 4th grader, fire that co-worker how dare they say Jesus is Lord.” This video brings tears to my eyes!

    • It brought tears to mine as well. We are so privileged and yet so quick to forsake certain blessings. These people model, as best as anyone could, how much of a blessing it is to have access to the Word of God. There are many, perhaps thousands of other people groups that do not have the Word of God in their possession or translated in their language. We should be diligent in reaching the nations for Jesus Christ. But perhaps first, we Christians in the West need to recapture the joy that these people display: the joy of having Christ and the joy of having His Word.
