Praise the Lord Beloved!!! Another weekend and what a great day to serve God!!!
A few days ago, I was having a conversation with a young man and he told me he trusted Jesus, but he didn’t trust the others writers of the Bible. He went on to explain and give his reasons. I let him say all that he had to say. He criticized all the writers from the Old Testament to the New Testament.
Then I told him that I had a problem with his logic.
Beloved, Jesus trusted the Bible. EVERY WORD OF IT!!!
He taught that the Bible was a unique book, above all the others.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:18 (NIV), “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished”.
Jesus says the Bible will last until the end of time. It will accomplish what God wants to accomplish in this world. In John 10:35a (NLT) Jesus said, “And you know that the Scriptures cannot be altered.” Beloved, Jesus proclaimed the truth of the Bible. And when Jesus talks about the truthfulness of the Bible, we need to listen. You see, when Jesus talked about the Bible with people, he would often base his argument about the truth of the Bible on a single sentence or even a single word from the Bible. He believed every single sentence, every single word of Scripture. So, if I trust Jesus, why wouldn’t I trust the Bible? 😀
When Jesus talked about the Bible, he talked about it as if the people and events in it were real. He talked about all the prophets being real. He talked about Daniel being real. Jesus believed in Noah and everything that happened with the flood. He believed in Adam and Eve. He believed in the tragedy of Sodom and Gomorrah. He believed that Jonah was swallowed by a large fish.
Beloved, if Jesus really believed in Jonah, then I should, too. I don’t know how God created a fish that could swallow a guy, but he did.
I trust what’s in the Bible because Jesus trusted in it. Beloved this weekend trust what’s in the Bible and let it change your life.
Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone.
