I love books and I love reading. My Granny use to say, “A good book is like a friend.” My Mum says I am a lot like her and it is lovely to know I share the passion for books with my Grandmother. A good book is very good company indeed.
The Bible is more than good company, God speaks to us through it. His Holy Spirit enlightens us to His scriptures. It guides us through life to be the person God created us to be and it helps us to truly know Him and His will for our lives.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
The Bible is the only self-help book you will ever need. His word completes us, it equips us, it teaches us and corrects us. Every word of the Bible is meant to be there, that is why it says that all scripture is God breathed. Every single word has a purpose.
God’s word is powerful!
The Bible reveals the condition of our hearts. It reveals our need for a Savior. When Jesus walked the earth and taught the people he said, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31)
Reading this book sets us free! Once we realize the condition of our hearts and ask the Lord Jesus to be our Savior, we are set free from sin and death.
My parents used to sing a Christian children’s song to me and my sisters, which included the words “the best book to read is the Bible.” And it is a fact. The best book, that will change your life, is the Bible.
