Long Story Short | Why Believe The Bible is the true story of the one true God.
James 1:22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.“
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.“
Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
Luke 11:28 “He replied, “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”Jesus is coming. Jesus has come. Jesus is coming again.
Dr. Derek Vreeland “In reading the Bible with Jesus at the center, we come to understand all of Scripture in and through Jesus.” Meaning…
“The written word leads us to the living Word.
The word made text leads us to the Word made flesh.
The Spirit-inspired word leads us to the Spirit-conceived Word.” As followers of Jesus, we should be so entrenched with God’s word that our lives fit into the pages of the New Testament.
