"I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit
of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me."
How cool is that?
But get this: as I grabbed the pen and started to ink out my portion of Scripture, I suddenly felt overwhelmed. I imagined the scribes of old who would roll out scrolls of the ancient text and copy it word for word. What a powerful thing. What a responsibility. What an honor. And then, it hit me--"what business do I have, writing out Scripture? I'm no scribe. I'm not worthy of writing this down."
God's word is so precious. Far too valuable to be taken lightly--especially by someone who is such a wretched sinner as myself. As I placed the tip of the pen on the paper, my hand began to shake. I worried that I was going to screw something up. What if I misspelled something? What if I left a word out? What if lightning struck me for daring to transcribe the Holy Word of God? It was painstaking. It was horrifying!
I managed to get through it without any lightning strikes or mistakes. I guess once it's made public, you can critique my work yourself! Ha!
Anyway, it's a neat project that has Americans writing out the Bible. I love it. Just wanted to tell you about it.
