The Bible


Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.

- 1 Corinthians 15:1-4


Try to imagine a world without Bibles...


The reality is that there are places on earth where scripture is unknown, and the people who live in those cultures don’t know anything about Jesus Christ. This truth should stir us to pray not only that God’s Word will reach them, but also that they will realize how valuable the Bible is. Without it, none of us would have any idea how to be saved—or even that we needed salvation.


• The Bible reveals God’s holiness and exposes mankind’s sinful, hopeless condition

( Rom. 3:23 ). Our sin makes us His enemies, and we can’t do anything to remedy this

situation.


• Scripture explains what God did through Jesus Christ to provide a means of

reconciliation ( 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 ). The Father sent His Son to earth to become a

substitute sacrifice to pay the penalty we deserved for our sin. 


• God’s Word explains that we can receive Christ’s gift of salvation by repenting of our

sin and trusting in Him ( Mark 1:15 ).


The next time you pick up your Bible, stop and thank God for giving you such a precious

gift. And praise Him for making His wonderful plan of salvation known to you.
