As I reflect on the many blessings from God…one of the most important is the Word of God.
The Bible is God’s revelation given to man…it is God breathed. Through reading God’s word I can know the mind and heart of God. Because God is so far beyond our comprehension…I can study the Bible for a lifetime and never fully know God…barely scratching the surface. In the scriptures God has revealed Himself, His will and His good and perfect plan for our lives. In the Bible God has given us truth…He has given us light to drive out the darkness.
Through the word of God, I learned of the Father’s plan of salvation offered to me through His Son Jesus Christ. Through the reading of God’s word, the Holy Spirit corrects, convicts and encourages me. I am washed and renewed through the study of God’s word.
I can hold a Bible in my hand without fear of persecution and I praise God that I have been educated and am able to read God’s word for myself. Through the Holy Spirit I can understand the Bible.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12
