I'm super thankful for God's Word. God's Word isn't just about listing a bunch of religious do's and dont's. From the Old Testament Books to the New Testament Books, there are so many illustrations about how God heals, corrects, make things right, deals with sin, and shows us how to live in victory over sin. God shows us how He is there for us and cares for us. He shows us in His Word how He wants the best for us and how we end up getting less than God's best when we rebel against Him in our flesh.
But finally in Revelation, God reveals how good truly wins over evil. There is a new heaven and new earth to come and those saved in Christ get to experience the joy of being in God's awesome presence for eternity! That is AWESOME! The Bible has many great and precious promises. Many prophecies were fulfilled in the Old Testament. There were prophecies fulfilled at the beginning of the Church Age after Jesus ascended into heaven and persecution broke out against the Church after the stoning of Stephen. And now, even now, there are prophecies about to be fulfilled as we speak.
The Bible is true. It is not a fairy tale. The Bible is God-breathed. It is our ultimate road-map. And one of the most important things it contains is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It's about God's grace being extended to sinners who rightly deserve hell. But God does not want anyone to perish, but He wants all to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
So when you read the Bible, please don't read it like you would read anything else leisurely. Read it carefully, study it, and ask God to reveal Himself to you in a fresh and living way. If you're a skeptic or non-believer, you have a great chance to see that you and I were created for the general purpose of bringing God glory. But not only that, you and I each have individual purposes too. It's up to us to seek God about what our individual purposes are. As long as you get to inhale and exhale, it's not too late to seek God and go after what good things He has for you. Trust Him and trust His Word. I assure you, God cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18)!
I just want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can for Jesus Christ.
