If our steps are ordered in God’s Word, we will live by God’s rules. And if we live by God’s rules, then God is our King, our Lord.
Conversely, if our steps are ordered in the world’s value-system, we will live the world’s rules. And, if we live by the world’s rules, then the world is our king, our lord.
…the act of faith in accepting the prescription for salvation… in God’s Word, must also mean full acceptance of ALL other prescriptions in His Word: Full acceptance of even those truths that we find uncomfortable.
This year’s research reveals that skepticism toward the Bible continues to rise. For the first time since tracking began, Bible skepticism is tied with Bible engagement. The number of those who are skeptical or agnostic toward the Bible—who believe that the Bible is “just another book of teachings written by men that contains stories and advice”—has nearly doubled from 10% to 19% in just three years. This is now equal to the number of people who are Bible engaged—who read the Bible at least four times a week and believe it is the actual or inspired Word of God…
…Given the increase in Millennials who don’t believe the Bible is sacred and the decrease in Bible awareness among Millennials, Bible skepticism will likely continue to rise in the next five years.
…a Believer grows spiritually as he/she studies God’s Word (the Bible) and is thereby taught by The Holy Spirit. This is the method God has ordained for us to grow into the likeness of His son, Jesus Christ.
Even the world acknowledges that what we learn as children sticks in our minds for life, so what is more important that making sure that little ones learn God’s Word and that it is in their hearts?
…many of our fears concerning God arise from misconceptions due to cultural influences and/or a lack of knowledge of God’s WORD.
The Prince of Peace
The Son of man
The Lamb of God
The great I AM
He’s the alpha and omega
Our God and our Savior
He is Jesus Christ the Lord
and when time is no more
He is, HE IS!
A child of God simply cannot live their life with any contentment if we are not taking in God’s Word and applying it to our lives on a regular basis. We NEED God’s instruction fed to us through His very words. There just is no substitute for it.
To deny that God’s Word (The Bible) is truth is to say that Christ lied. To say, “well maybe not all of it was true”, makes Christ a liar and a fool because He said it was true.
Lord, help us to have a hungry heart
And long for the joys you will give,
If only we’ll spend quiet time with You,
In Your Book we’ll learn how to live.
