Sharing thoughts from my nightly devotional. And thankful for the YouVersion Bible App and their daily reading plans.
Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another-showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way. (2 3:16 MSG)
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 3:16 KJV)
Why read the Bible? Because it is God's Word! Do you realize how astounding that is? We don't have mere stories or tales about our God. We have God's very own words. Words of creation and change. Words of redemption and hope. God's words are holy, true, and timeless.
The Bible is truth and because of that the Bible points out to us how far we each have fallen. Sin has created a distance between us and God.
The Bible is also a book of hope. For it teaches us how to live Godly lives today and how we can find the gift of eternal life. God does not want to be eternally distance from any of us. He wants to draw us close to Him and the Bible tells us how.
