Yesterday, Ravi Zacharias when home to be with Jesus. He was a faithful man of God, evangelist, and apologist for Jesus Christ. Most of all he loved God’s word, the Bible, and preached & defended it powerfully. Today I prayed Psalm 119, a lengthy supplication by another servant of the LORD who also loved God’s word. This poet’s prayer flowed from a man who was saturated with God’s words and totally surrendered & committed to them. He was a witness to the wonders of its wealth. God’s words delighted this man more and more as he meditated upon them seeking their meaning. This man loved God’s law and kept constant company with his commandments. He practiced its precepts and regulated his life by its rules. He was taught by the Torah and found inspiration from its instruction. He found the testimonies of the Torah to be tasty, God’s law to be lovely and his words to be wonderful. In fact, he was wowed by God’s wonder-filled words. God’s commandments controlled and counseled this man and gave him confidence. This servant suffered many sorrows yet surrendered to God’s statues every step of his sojourning. I want to be like this man. Though nameless, he was known to God and loved by him. I cannot fathom such faithful , committed love God showed him and me in so many different ways and at different times. To me, the most important thing about God’s word (the Bible) is that it is truth in its entirety (John 17:17) and totally trustworthy. Its main truth is the subject of the Scriptures, Jesus Christ, who said about himself that he was “the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6), the very essence of the Word of God (John 1:1; Revelation 19:13). I pray that I, too, may be one of Christ’s faithful and true witnesses in this world like the beloved Ravi for however long the Lord allows me life and breath. I can be, if God enables me by his grace to remain saturated with and committed to God’s Word.
