The Tennessee Senate just voted 19-8 in favor of a bill to designate the Holy Bible as the official state book. Way to go Tennessee! And I hope Governor Bill Haslam will sign the bill to make it official. Legislators said they wanted to recognize and preserve the historical contributions of the Bible to this state. Just think of the incredible impact the Bible has had on this nation and on mankind. It’s not just a book—it’s the holy Word of God. It is true from cover to cover, and I believe it. Its teachings are the foundation of my life and I rely on it every day for strength, encouragement, wisdom, and direction. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
