More Than a Book

Handing the book through the opening in the wall, she told which prisoner it was for and explained, “It’s just a Bible.”

The jailer quickly leafed through it. It passed inspection.

What became of that Bible?

Was the inmate’s life changed by it? Once he got out, did it help him stay out?

That Bible contained no illegal drugs, but like a legitimate prescription it has the power to heal—if taken as directed (James 1:21).

And though it contained no concealed weapon, the message inside “is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword . . .” (Hebrews 4:12).

What might the Bible do for us?

The Bible can convict not only the convict in his cell, but all the rest of us as well.

What other book has such power to transform lives—from the inside out?
