The Bible—God’s Special Gift To Us!
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
I always love to thank God for giving us the Bible. What a treasure; what a special gift from God to us! Many have questioned the veracity and authenticity of this all-important book through the years. If they only knew how powerful the Bible is and how it has helped to mould individuals and nations, they would have a re-think.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It’s the only book in the world that has borne the words of Jesus through the ages. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). So you can expect God’s Word as contained in the Bible to remain relevant today, and forever.
Paul, in his letter to Timothy, said “All scripture is given by inspiration of God…” If you’re going to describe anything as Scripture, then it has to be God-inspired. The Bible is God-inspired. The testimonies from people all over the world, and through the ages give credence to this truth. Many miracles have been wrought and lives changed as a result of studying, meditating and using it. What a wonderful treasure!
The Bible is God’s special gift to us—to build us up and make us His Word. So if there’s anything in life you must possess, let it be a copy of the Holy Bible. And not only should you own one, study it regularly and meditate on the Word of God contained therein.
