Read Your Bible…

For it contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, doom of sinners, and happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter.

Here paradise is restored, heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.

Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be open at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and condemns all who trifle with its holy contents.

The Book For You

The Holy Bible

Do you know there is a book that explains how the world began? The first words of this book are, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Following these words, it tells us how the world was created, and about the first man and woman who lived on the earth. Not only does it tell us about the beginning of time, but also what will happen after this life is over. Throughout this book, we read how we should live to be prepared for life after death.

Writing the Bible.

This is an old book written by about 40 different authors over approximately 1500 years. They wrote what God told them to write. God told the authors about Himself. The author of Genesis, the first book, wrote about the creation and also about the flood that covered the earth. He and other writers wrote about God’s chosen people and how He led them through the years. God inspired different men to write history, poetry, prophecy, and about the promises of God. Because this writing was inspired by God, it does not have anyone’s name on the cover. It is called the Bible, which means “the book.” Many times it is called the Holy Bible, which means “the holy book.”

Complete text of: The Book For You

The Bible is the most widely distributed book in the world. Although there have been times when some have tried to destroy it, God has always preserved it and always will. “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever” (1 Peter 1:25). The Bible is made up of 66 books. It is divided into two parts—the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament tells the history of the world and how God promised to send his Son Jesus to earth to save us from our sins. The New Testament tells how Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth. It tells how Jesus was born as a baby. Many events of Jesus’s life are recorded, including many miracles that He performed. The Bible shows us that Jesus is our perfect example in all things. When Jesus spoke, the people listened to his teachings. We can read many of them in the books called the Gospels.

The Gospel of John contains many words of Jesus. He told the people that God is his Father. He taught that God loves everyone in the world. John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” We also read how Jesus suffered and died to pay for our sins and that He resurrected from the dead to live forever. Jesus tells us that we can have forgiveness of our sins if we believe in Him. Because the book of John has many words of Jesus and is easy to understand, it is one of the first books of the Bible we should read.

Do you ever wonder what will happen after life is over? The Bible tells us that someday Jesus will come again to judge all people. We can read how to prepare for that time. Jesus tells us that He has gone to prepare a place in heaven for those who will accept Him.

In the Bible we find answers to the perplexing questions of life. Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where will we go when we die? These questions and many more are answered throughout the Bible. When life becomes dull and lacks purpose, we can go to the Bible where God says, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye” (Psalm 32:8). When someone close to us dies, we can go to the Bible for comfort from God. He uses the Bible to speak to us today.

Reading the Bible to children.

Sometimes we read a book and wonder if it is true. We know the Bible is true because it is the Word of God. There are hundreds of verses in the Bible with these words, “Thus saith the Lord.” There are many prophecies that were written and later came to pass just as was prophesied. Jesus promised to give peace and joy to those who come to Him. Many people have experienced this. In God’s love for mankind, He has given his Word to everyone. The Bible speaks to our hearts.

What Is It All About?

I started out in life so carefree and happy. I was like a little butterfly with beautiful wings and a world of flowers to see. Life seemed wonderful as I looked to the future.

It didn’t take long and my views changed. I realized I had to perform to be accepted. Life seemed like a circus. There were hoops held out far into the future. If I jumped through the rings I received approval. If I didn’t—well—everybody else did.

Life became a performance. Leap through the rings; make the football team, or the cheerleading squad, or the honor roll. Go to the right college and get a degree. I did some things I wished I hadn’t, but everybody else did them—so—go on and hope to forget. Get a good job and make lots of money. At the right time get married, have the correct number of children, buy a house—a nice big house, and a better car. I think I’m getting tired. Join a club—not any old club, but the right club—jump, jump, jump. Retirement, I have to think about retirement—buy stocks, sell stocks—hit some bumps, go, go, go.

And suddenly, I stand before the last hoop. But, it isn’t round, it’s rectangular, and it’s in the ground. The grass stops at the ragged edges. Here is where it all ends.

What happened to me anyway? Life wasn’t supposed to be this way. Where is the little butterfly with the beautiful wings? What happened to the flowers? Was I truly happy? What about my soul? Is this what it’s all about?

Complete text of: What Is It All About?

“God, what happened?”

“I’m glad you finally asked,” God said. “I will take you back and show you what went wrong and what your life could have been, if you would have chosen my way.”

“When you were a child, I was with you. All children are in my care (Matthew 19:13-14). Don’t you remember the little butterfly with the beautiful wings?”

My heart ached as I recalled those happy, innocent days—gone, forever gone.

God continued, “The time came when you became responsible for your decisions. Do you remember that argument you had with your mom? It made you feel terrible, but you wouldn’t admit that you were wrong. You chose to take your own way.”

“I tried to stop you. Do you remember when your closest friend died? The lonesome feeling you had—that was me, talking to you. Deep in your heart you knew things weren’t right, but you were afraid to change. You were afraid of what your friends would think, so you ignored me, and drifted farther away from me.”

God’s voice grew sad. “Do you remember your years in college?”

“Oh! God, don’t remind me. I’m trying to forget those days,” I begged.

Gently, God said, “Forgetting doesn’t take care of the sin (Ecclesiastes 12:14). I would have been glad to forgive you if you would have asked—but you never asked (1 John 1:9). All those times you felt lonely and sad, that was me, calling you, but you didn’t listen. Do you remember when you landed that good job? The pay was terrific, but did it do for you what you thought it would? (1 Timothy 6:9). I tried to tell you that contentment comes only from me. For a while you did consider taking my way, but it seemed too hard so you followed your own way. Oh, if only you would have come to me, I would have given you what you were searching for—peace in your heart, peace in your home, and confidence about the future” (Matthew 11:28).

God continued, “You were so busy. I tried talking to you on those cool beautiful evenings, but you didn’t hear. I tried to get your attention during the storms. I thought you might be listening, but you weren’t. If only you would have listened, I could have helped you solve those problems between you and your spouse. It would have prevented so many heartaches” (1 Peter 3:7).

“If you would have prayed and asked me for wisdom, I would have helped you to deal with your son. It could be so different now (Proverbs 29:17). But no, you were too busy, too wise, too big a man to turn to me.”

As God turned away, He said, “You wasted your life on your own selfish whims, and now you are lost forever.” And then I felt myself slipping away from God, away—away.

Lost—forever lost! What does it mean? It means being away from God—forever—in a place of torment prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 13:41-42). But you can change this. If you know things are not right with your life, admit it. Turn to God, repent of your sin, and surrender your will to Him (Acts 2:37-38). God loves you, and wants to forgive you (John 3:16). The price has already been paid (Romans 5:8-11). Jesus died on the cross in your place. He paid the ransom so you could be saved. You can have peace and rest in your heart, and in the end—heaven (John 14:1-3).

This is what it is all about.
