In a recent Instagram post, Robby Dawkins reveals the answer to this question. Dawkins is an international speaker and teacher with a heart for muslim countries. His social media feed is often filled with testimonies of healings, salvations, and miracles from across the globe.
Romans 10:14-15 – How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Dawkins is one that definitely has “beautiful” feet and he is equipping others to Do What Jesus Did and Do Greater Things. He’s even written two books about it!
Dawkins says “it’s better than Christmas morning”
A Bible. Dawkins encourages his followers, “I pray we treasure and value the Word of God like never before. The hunger for the Word of God in closed countries is so strong. One of the first questions they ask you when you enter the boarder of North Korea is, ‘did you bring any Bibles with you?’ They they search your bags so any you brought with you can be seized. Let’s value Scripture again to the point that we put aside editing it to be Politically Correct or palatable to the culture. ”
He’s got a good point. For first world countries Bibles are readily available. Many believers own multiple copies. Let’s not take the Word of God for granted. After all, it is living and active (Hebrews 4:12) and our belt of Truth (Ephesians 6:14). In John 8:32 we are promised, “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” In other words, reading the Bible, which is Truth, sets us free!
Next time you pick up your Bible to read imagine Christmas morning. Imagine believers in closed countries who wish they had the book that is resting in your hands. Give thanks as you open Truth and receive freedom as you read!
