Prayer Needed

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Matthew 24:12-13 NIV)

My heart goes out to the victims and their families from the Las Vegas tragedy.  We have had so many natural disasters lately such as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, wildfires, volcanoes, and now this.  Please pray for the people affected by these tragedies.  May they find hope and comfort in Jesus.  Please also pray for the first responders and those that are helping people through this difficult time.

You are His

Meditate on God’s Word

Can You Trust the Bible?

And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. (Psalms 12:6 NIV)

Is the Bible trustworthy since it was copied by hand over and over throughout the centuries?  YES!  The Bible has been preserved through the ages.  The oldest Old Testament manuscripts are the Dead Sea Scrolls.  The Bible was hand copied yet it is still accurate.  Comparing Isaiah in the King James Version to Isaiah in Dead Sea Scrolls, they are the same.  The same God that inspired the Bible has preserved the Bible.  Isn’t that amazing?  There are about seven early books on Marco Polo – yet each existing copy is different.  Satan has tried to destroy God’s Word through the centuries but God has kept it safe.

Why did God give us the Bible?

Your Word is true from the beginning; and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. (Psalms 119:160 MKJV)

Why did God give us the Bible?  There are so many answers to this question.  I love the Bible.  It tells me how we got here in Genesis 1 and 2.  It tells me why there is so much evil in the world in Genesis 3.  There are so many stories of how people have struggled with sin and how God has helped them.  Read Judges, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, Esther, Job and so much more.  The Bible tells me through the prophets how much He loves us and encourages us to return to Him.  The Gospels tells us how the Father loves us so much that Jesus came to this earth to show us that love by taking the penalty for our sin and dying so that we may have eternal life.  Revelation tells us the plans of Satan to destroy us but Jesus wins and Satan loses.  What does the Bible mean to you?
