We believe the Bible is God’s word.
The Bible is relevant to your life. It was writing a long time ago in a different cultural context. But the Bible is timeless and relevant because it’s author is timeless and His knowledge exceeds anything we could imagine. God inspired these Godly men to write down His words to be a guide for our lives. I love the visual of this Psalm.
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet
and a light for my path.
The lamp helps you in the immediate. To help you not trip over obstacles in your way. You are able to make immediate decisions because you see up close what you need to do with every step. The light that the lamp emits also allows you to see down the road to make sure you are headed in the right direction. To help you end up at your destination.
God’s word is a lamp to help you make daily decisions. The Bible helps us with every step. To shine a light on our moment by moment decisions to help us avoid making bad choices. The Bible also helps us to see the big picture of God’s plan. So we can see why each step is important and how each step fits into God’s mission.
How bright is the lamp of God’s word in your life? Is it barely flickering and you keep stumbling through life? If it is it is time to open up God’s word and start adding fuel to your lamp.
