Unity in Scripture

By   •   August 8   •   Topics:

Man holding Bible

Although one can derive inspiration from any portion of the Scripture, it is better to have an understanding of the general structure of the Bible to get the most out of it. The Old Testament is an account of a nation, Israel. Out of that nation came Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. The New Testament is an account of a Man, the Son of man, the Savior. God Himself became a man, so that we might know what He is like. His appearance on the earth was the central, most important event of history. The Old Testament gives the background for this event; the New Testament tells the story of its fulfillment. You will find a unity of thought and purpose which indicates that one mind inspired the writing of the whole.

Prayer for the day

Inspire me, Lord God, as I read the Bible so that I may be able to understand more clearly Your divine teachings.

    It is very helpful just before reading the Bible to say a brief prayer asking God to open your mind to the great truths found in his Holy Word.
