Vom Lesebuch zum Lebensbuch

If you're like me, you enjoy listening to sermons in other languages. This morning I watched this one:

Loved this statement: "Wem wollt ihr glauben? Wem wollt ihr gehorchen und damit gehören? Menschlichen Versprechungen oder dem lebendigen Gott?" Don't worry. Google can translate this for you. But here's the best quote from the sermon:

"Es ist wichtig, dass diese Bibel vom Lesebuch zum Lebensbuch wird." 

Google can give you the gist of this, but it can't even come close to translating the magnificent word play between "Lesebuch" and "Lebensbuch"! Shout out to all my friends in Basel for helping me fall in love with this marvelous language called German!

Have a wonderful Lord's Day.
