B is for Bible
Today’s A to Z challenge letter is the letter “B”; So, I am going to talk about my favorite book; the Bible.
The bible is the written word of God. The Holy Spirit is the author.
The bible is divided into two parts: The Old and New Testament. The Old Testament contains the Old Covenant between God and man for being found Righteous in the eyes of God through sacrifice. The New Testament shows how Jesus, God himself, made the ultimate sacrifice, dying on the cross for you and I and what we are supposed to do now if we believe he is the son of God and that God raised Him from the dead.
What is the bible useful for?
The bible is useful for teaching, rebuking correcting and training.
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;so that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Who is the bible about?
The bible is all about Jesus.
What is the purpose?
To show us, what to do and what sin is.
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105
How do you Read the Bible?
You can read the bible in any order you want to and in any way you desire. Here is a link to some reading plans: http://www.youversion.com/reading-plans
Read a chapter or two... If this is your first time, I suggest you start with the book of John in the new testament. Don't believe what others have to say about it, take time to read it yourself.
