I can remember when I realized for the first time that I could count on the Bible. I was on into my adult years, raised in the church, had a minister for a dad, and frankly, had quite a bit of Bible knowledge. But the realization that God’s Word was true and reliable was something new to me. It changed my life forever!
In our world today many things compete for influence in our lives. The culture we live in promotes a “me mentality” where all of life evolves around the individual. We learn to trust anything that tickles our ears and tells us what we want to hear. We end up counting on only those things that benefit us at the moment. Yet what our lives need more than anything is the reliable Word of God.
The Bible is sufficient in our lives. In contrast to the theories of men, God’s Word is absolutely comprehensive. The Bible does not change. Unlike the opinions and wisdom of man, God’s Word is the same today as it was yesterday and will be tomorrow.
Most importantly, the Bible is true. It is true all of the time. Proverbs 30:5-6 says, “Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to Him for protection. Do not add to His words or He may rebuke you and expose you as a liar.”
