A young woman who was soundly converted immediately began to read her Bible. A friend who disbelieved the Scriptures and took delight in ridiculing them asked her, "Why do you spend so much time reading a book like that?"
"Because it’s the Word of God," replied the girl.
"Nonsense! Who told you that?" scornfully asked the unbeliever.
After a moment’s silence the girl asked, "Who told you there’s a sun in the sky?"
"Nobody,” replied the scoffer, "I don’t need anybody to tell me. The sun tells me."
"Yes," said the girl in triumph, "and that’s the way God tells me about His Word. I feel His warmth and sense His presence as I read His wonderful word!"
