The Bible

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2Timothy 3:16-17)

The Bible originated within God; it came from within his very being. God breathed out the Bible; he breathed through the human authors by his Holy Spirit. God is a God who speaks; he reveals himself by speaking. He created the universe by speaking it into existence. His words are creative and powerful. When God breathed out the Bible he breathed out words that were just as powerful as those which brought Creation into being. Those words are the actual words we have on the pages of our Bibles. The Bible, therefore, is the spoken word of God written down.

Consequently, the Bible is infallible: it does not mislead or deceive. It is completely trustworthy. It contains no errors or contradictions. It tells the truth about what we should believe and practice. Its stories are true and accurate. What the Bible says is right and wrong is actually right and wrong. The Bible is not a cultural book; it is an eternal book because the eternal God wrote it.

The Bible is the Word of God; every time you read it God speaks to you. Don’t only read it; do what it says. As you do so, you will discover that God is true to every word he has spoken and is written in the Bible. You can trust it completely because God is behind his word; it is his integrity.
