THE BIBLE


THE BIBLE

2 Peter 1:20-21 (NKJV) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is like no other book.  It is a book that has not come from the will of man, but the will of God.  God put Himself into the Bible, and that is why it is still the number one selling book of all times.

If I take a balloon and blow into it, my life is in that balloon.  My very DNA is in it.  It is the same with the Bible.  It has the DNA of God, and that is why it is a living book.  I read this quote by Max Lucado years ago:

“The Bible has been banned, burned, scoffed, and ridiculed. Scholars have mocked it as foolish. Kings have branded it as illegal. A thousand times over it the grave has been dug, and the dirge has begun, but somehow the Bible never stays in the grave. Not only has it survived, it has thrived. It is the single most popular book in all of history. It has been the best-selling book in the world for years!

“There is no way on earth to explain it. Which perhaps is the only explanation. The answer? The Bible’s durability is not found on earth; it is found in heaven. For the millions who have tested its claims and claimed its promises there is but one answer – the Bible is God’s book and God’s voice.”

The purpose of the Bible is to proclaim God’s plan and passion to save His children. That is the reason this book has endured through the centuries.  It is the treasure map that leads us to God’s highest treasure: Eternal life.

So many have tried to get rid of this book that we have in our homes, on our smartphones, tablets, and so on, but today, let us make a decision to take the written Word and get it into our hearts, and let it become the living Word abiding within us.

Confession:  Today, I purpose to let the Bible become alive within me.  I choose the life of God’s Word to be my food and drink for this day, and for everyday.  His Word is living!
