Can You Believe the Bible?
“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:89
Isn’t that a beautiful verse? You know, the Bible is not the book of the year; it is the book of the ages. It is settled in heaven and on Earth. We can depend upon the Word of God. It’s not up for a vote. But it does have its enemies.
The liberal will try to water it down, the atheist will deny it, and the cultist will twist it. But I believe the greatest enemy of the Bible today is the Christian who does not love it, memorize it, practice it, and obey it. If we would do that, we would be witnessing and winning those who disbelieve.
It is absolutely imperative that you are certain about the Bible. You’ll never get much of anything else settled until you get that settled.
- Your salvation depends upon it because the Bible says “you are born again by the Word of God” (1 Peter 1:23).
- Your sanctification depends upon it. Jesus said, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your Word is truth” (John 17:17).
- Your usefulness depends on it.God gives you His word so you can “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
- Your assurance depends upon it. “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13).
If you want your life to be an exclamation point rather than a question mark, then you need to be certain the Bible is the Word of God.
