Many years ago I was discipling someone. I gave her a Bible and told her about Jesus. When I saw her several weeks later, she was excited. Proudly, she told me she put that Bible under her pillow every night. She had not read a page. But she was growing in Christ because she slept on it each night.
If all we do is sleep with the Bible, it is useless (and probably makes the pillow lumpy). The Bible is also useless as photo op, useless as a truth-totem in court. A teller of boldfaced lies will tell those lies after swearing on a Bible. The Bible is not a totem, a prop, or an accessory.
The Bible is God’s living word, God’s message to the world conveyed through law, prophecy, creation narratives, chronicles of kings, Gospels, poetry, and letters.
