Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
“The Bible holds up before us ideals that are within sight of the weakest and the lowliest, and yet so high that the best and the noblest are kept with their faces turned ever upward. It carries the call of the Saviour to the remotest corners of the earth; on its pages are written the assurances of the present and our hopes for the future.” (William Jennings Bryan)
God’s manuscript convicts our conscience. With an invisible hand, God wrote the terms of His covenant with Israel and high expectations of His testament with the church—sacred words infinitely superior to temporal abracadabras.
He penned the Book from Heaven to guide us on our earthly journey, educate us in timeless truth, help us see wrongs in our life, and get us back on track morally.
Divine light shines through the pages of Scripture, pointing out attitudes offending God and actions making both Him and us sad.
God does not chisel His law on granite—He inscribes it in minds receptive to Truth and hearts sensitive to Love.
God’s fingerprints are all over the Holy Bible, writing chapters of wisdom to guide us through life’s maze. If we are humble, we’ll pay attention; if we are wise, we’ll obey.
“’This is the finger of God!’ the magicians exclaimed to Pharaoh.” (Exodus 8:19 NLT)
