(Corrie ten Boom)
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field,
which a man found and covered up.
Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls,
who, on finding one pearl of great value,
went and sold all that he had and bought it.”
(Matthew 13:44–46, ESV)
“There’s no better book with which to defend the Bible than the Bible itself.”

who seek him with their whole heart,
who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!”

“Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
By your appointment they stand this day, for all things are your servants.”
(Psalm 119:89–91, ESV)
“I long for your salvation, O Lord, and your law is my delight.
Let my soul live and praise you, and let your rules help me.
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant, for I do not forget your commandments.”
(Psalm 119:174–176, ESV)
Our need for the influence of the Holy Spirit in Bible study is seen in this comment by Dwight L. Moody: “The Bible without the Holy Spirit is a sun-dial by moonlight.”
