The Bible is the most important book to the Christian life. It’s the primary means by which God communicates with His people, revealing Himself, His character, and how we can know Him. Unlike other religions whose scriptures list ways one must work to reach their god, the Bible tells the story of a God who came down and completed the work we could not so that sinful man could be reconciled to a holy God.
Rather than seeing the Bible as an overbearing list of rules to appease God, see it as a love story of God pursuing His people and loving them despite their rebellion. The Bible says that it is living and active, so why do many people see it as a stagnant book? Through the Holy Spirit’s help, you too can hunger for God’s Word and truly feast on its truths.
Throughout the Old and New Testament, gospel themes are woven in every book, pointing toward Christ. The Bible tells of the perfect relationship between God and man in the Garden before man rebelled against God. After sinning against God, man constantly chose to disobey God, and God continued to pursue people with faithful love and mercy.
Through priests, judges, kings, and prophets, the Bible shows the imperfection of human leaders and the need for a High Priest, Just Judge, Righteous King, and Faithful Prophet in Christ. The entire Bible tells of man’s sinful rebellion and God’s loving mercy for His people, ultimately dying for them to reconcile us back to Him.
Now, we don’t need priests or prophets because we have direct access to God through Jesus. If you want to learn about the Bible and how to know God this way, consider a daily Christian devotional from Isthatinthebible. Fill out our contact form to learn more.
