He is God, our Creator and King. He is All-Mighty, All-Knowing, Ever-Present, Never-Created and Never-Changing.
History is His-Story.
By His Word, nothing became everything. He spoke, and from dark nothingness a zillion-zillion stars were hung in the unexplorable expanse. He said, “Let there be…” and plants and trees, fish and birds, and animals of every shape and size filled Eden’s unblemished ecosphere.
Mountain peaks and bottomless oceans, the giant Ponderosa and the most delicate flowers, all declare the greatness and glory of the Master Designer and Maker.
When He speaks, He Reveals Himself, His ways and His will, His plans and purpose.
Long ago God spoke by the prophets. Then He spoke by his Son, appointed as heir of all things. The Son, the radiance of God’s glory, the exact expression of God’s nature, sustains all things by His powerful word (Hebrews 1:1–3).
In the absence of His command, gravity would fail, the sun would cease to shine, order would become disorder, structure would become chaos. Einstein’s theory of relativity: “Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared” would be a false mathematical calculation.
God still speaks.
The Holy Scriptures, the God-Breathed Words, His Written Word, reveals His grace and mercy, the Glorious Good News, the Gospel. These are the Words of Life, “sweeter than honey in my mouth” (Psalm 119:103). His Word “is a is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105, NLT). Like a lighthouse standing guard over a stormy harbor, His Word leads me safely home.
Jesus promised, “If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death” (John 8:52) and this “Word is truth!” (John 17:17).
Imagine a treasure chest filled with shining gold, or dream of youthful beauty and indulgent pleasures, or of great power, prestige, and position… When weighed in the balance, the Bible is of far greater value than these. This Book, the Holy Bible, this Love Letter scripted from Creator to Creature, is of inestimable worth.
We agree. But I wonder… has this “book of instruction” gathered dust? Do we obediently “meditate on it day and night so that we may carefully observe everything written in it” ? (Joshua 1:8).
The best thing about the Bible is not black and red ink on a page … The best thing about the Bible is the hero of the story: Jesus. Like King David, he slew the giant. He overcame our enemy… sin, death, and hell. We don’t come to Sunday School to study the Bible. We come to meet Jesus.
“For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). In the famous words of the celebrated Christian anthem: “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so!”
