Why We Have the Bible

By   •   December 30   •   Topics:

God caused the Bible to be written for the express purpose of revealing to us God’s plan for His redemption. God caused the Book to be written that He might make His everlasting laws clear to His children, and that they might have His great wisdom to guide them, and His great love to comfort them as they make their way through life. For without the Bible this world would indeed be a dark and frightening place, without signpost or beacon. The Bible easily qualifies as the only book in which God’s revelation is contained.

There are many bibles of different religions; there is the Mohammedan Koran, the Buddhist Canon of Sacred Scripture, the Zoroastrian Zend-Avesta, and the Brahman Veda . . . They all begin with some flashes of true light, and end in utter darkness. Even the most casual observer soon discovers that the Bible is radically different. It is the only Book that offers redemption to us and points the way out of our dilemma.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, as I read Your Word, Your truth shines through and illuminates a dark world.

    A beautiful translation in the KJV of The Bible says that our days are to be as the days of heaven upon the earth,”That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.” Deut.11:21

    Word of God. We have a spiritual life and we also have a physical life. Our spiritual life also require food and encouragement and advice. This we get from word of God that is Bible. It tells us how to live our life, also about God, Jesus and Holy Spirit. It tells us about everything we require in life. Start the day with Jesus and meditating on God’s Word, so also end the day the same way. Glory to God. Amen

    The Bible offers answers to every question imaginable. It answers them either directly or indirectly. Every page is God inspired as 2 Timothy 3:16 proclaims. All other books combined do not come close to offering solutions to life’s problems as God’s Holy Word.
