It is an immeasurable wonder that God has given us an inspired book containing the truth about himself and his ways and what he wills for our lives. God wrote a book, and in this Book he reveals himself to us in all his glory. This new five-minute video will inspire you to run hard after him in. "God wrote a book." There is something very powerful in that simple statement. The book, of course, is the Bible, and because God is its author, it's the most.
He can be heard daily through the nationally syndicated radio broadcasts Walk in the Word and Listen Up. Not only that, but he demonstrates the singular difference God's book can make in your life. God wrote it to you and me Especially when you realize He wrote it to you and me, sharing his thoughts and his heart with each one of us. The Book God wrote is, of course, the Bible.
Until a few years ago, I attended the same church.
Now, I still catch up with the podcasts Walk in the Word , usually each week while I work. I know I had read this once before, but I'll admit that most of what I remember came from the weekly messages of the same topic what's here was first preached in sermons.
This book is good because it asks and answers the pertinent questions, ones that people just might a This is a short, concise book written by the Pastor I've listened to for some time. This book is good because it asks and answers the pertinent questions, ones that people just might ask, if not out loud, then often in their heads at some point more on that in a bit. This book is more than good because it can lead to picking up The Bible.
And that's the point of this little guy. It's outdated.
You don't get faith from a book. Can we trust that what was written so long ago has not been corrupted over time? The Dead Sea scrolls are just one piece of evidence that answered this. Chapter 2 and 3 are these: Where Did the Bible come from? What is the Bible Good For?
The answers may raise some eyebrows. All God-breathed. I can carry it with me wherever I go.
Read it whenever I want. Reading the Bible is one of the most important things we can ever do.
It is literally more important than breathing. Our weak, tired, distracted eyes look — and all we see is a lifeless boring portrait on the wall. It breaks through the wall into another world. The real world, the lasting world, the better world.
And through this window shines a divine light that changes everything around us. We all know that the road to knowing God is not easy.
Discipline and resolve are important, but they can carry you only so far. A few days, week, maybe a month. In the long run, we need something stronger, more compelling than discipline and resolve. There are too many traps along the path, too many hurdles. We see a wall, not a window. The boring portrait, not the never-ending beauty beyond.
So we put it off, leave it shut, and move on. We stay in bed, and we miss the miracle.
God wrote a book! And with His book, these words in front of us, He wakens our dead, bored souls.
