The Bible: Something you can trust

(Download ".pdf" lesson)

It is said that "the Bible is God's voice speaking to us, just as surely as though we could hear it with our ears. If we realized this, with what awe would we open God's word, and with what earnestness would we search its precepts! The reading and contemplation of the Scriptures would be regarded as an audience with the Infinite One."

 

The scribes of God wrote as they were dictated by the Holy Spirit, having no control of the work themselves. They penned the literal truth, and stern, forbidding facts are revealed for reasons that our finite minds cannot fully comprehend.  {4T 9.1} Yet we have this assurance from God that we as His children can understand. He tells us that "We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God," (1 Cor. 2:12, KJV). Let's discover His trust as we learn to trust in Him.
