What will we do with the Bible?
Be Strong, Be Well — Thursday, April 15, 2021
Either the Bible is the Word of God, or it is not. It is the Word of God in its entirety, or it is not.
We can believe these truths now or later. We can submit to the law of Christ now, or later regret the choice not to do so in this life.
“He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (John 12:48).
Most people (Matthew 7:13, 14) either reject the Bible completely or treat it like a shopping trip—pick out what you like and leave the rest behind.
This has been a pattern for humankind since the beginning. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children” (Hosea 4:6).
Romans 1:21 says, “although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
What will we do with the Bible? It’s the only place we can go to find out about God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Why is this important? Because Jesus Christ “is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:11, 12). —Chris
