Explore God:  October 21, 2015

John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Recently, I have been preaching a message series titled, ‘Explore God,’ and Sunday’s sermon was titled, “Is The Bible Reliable?” Before I even address the reliability of the Bible, I wanted to remind you what the Bible is. It’s a book that is referred to as the Word of God. Some people struggle with that idea; however, it should not be a struggle at all. A couple of weeks ago, I delivered a message sharing the many compelling reasons to believe there is an intelligent and personal God who created the universe and mankind. If you want to hear those evidences, you can go to our website and view the message online. If there is an all-powerful, perfect, infinite, and relational God, then it follows that He can guide the hearts and minds of men to write a book for Him and others to read it and hear from Him. If He is relational, He wants to be known just like you and I do. So, it really isn’t a stretch to think that a relational God would inspire words about Him so His creation could know more about Him. That’s why the book of Hebrews says, “For the word of God is alive and active…” (Hebrews 4:12). If the Word of God is living and active, shouldn’t we read it more?

Think about it, and have a blessed day!
