What is the Bible?

What is the Bible for us?

The Bible is the truth.

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.” (Jesus in John 17:17; NIV)

It is a never-ending source of eternal life for us.

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” (Jesus in John 4:14; NLT)

The Bible is strengthening food for our mind.

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2; KJV)

It is more than helpful at every stage of our development:

“But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” (Hebrews 5:14; NIV)

The Bible is the written promise of God’s blessings for us.

“And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.” (Deuteronomy 28:2; KJV)

The Bible is our guide on our way of life.

“I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.” (Psalm 119:104; NIV)

The Bible assures us of our eternal salvation and reconciliation with God.

“He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.” (Psalm 111:9; KJV)

Can you see now why the devil fights so vehemently against God’s Word? Take time every day to wash away your fears, doubts and worries with the helpful Word of God.
