The Bible is the inspired Word of Almighty God. I believe every single word in it and you can think I’m a fool if you like. I don’t care.
I turn to God’s Word for encouragement, inspiration and instruction. The road is narrow, but the journey is so sweet. Oh, no, I’m not perfect. Anyone who tries to tell you that reading the Bible will magically transform you into a perfect person does not know what they’re talking about. I’m still very (very) human. Trust me.
Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins. – Ecclesiastes 7:20
So, if I’m not going to be perfect… what’s the point? Well, the point is that my Savior, Jesus, died for me. He died so all who believe in Him might be saved. Jesus is the bridge between us and His Father, God. The Bible serves as a map of sorts as we go through life. It reminds us that we should be like Jesus. The word “Christian” means “Little Christ”.
I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are very wise and very beautiful; but I never read in either of them: “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden.” – St Augustine
There is no self-righteousness, but there is God’s righteousness. We seek His righteousness through His Son, Jesus. When we fail (and we will), we seek His forgiveness through His Son, Jesus. That’s how it works. It’s not about me, it’s about God. I can’t do anything without His help and guidance.
Peace be to you, fear not. – Genesis 43:23
I don’t know if anyone on this earth prays for me. I know without a doubt that Jesus prays for me. He is on my side and will bring His love and His peace to my life. ❤
