I Know The Bible Is The Word Of God
“14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
II Timothy 3:14-17
I read this story from Jeff Woods:
I used to hear people say, “I believe the Bible is the Word of God.” I started thinking about that statement and I think it is an understatement. A few years ago when my son and his family lived in Minnesota, over 1,000 miles away, we drove a few times but also flew a few times when we went to see them. Before we boarded the plane, with all my heart, I believed that plane would fly to Minnesota and land safely. If I had not believed that, I would never have boarded the plane. Yet, I did not know for sure that there would not be any problems on the flight. I can go to bed tonight and believe that I will get up in the morning, but I do not know for sure. When I think about the Holy Bible, the scriptures, I know with all my heart that it is the inspired Word of God. Paul mentions that Timothy knew the holy scriptures as a child. What a wonderful testimony. I praise the Lord that I was brought up in church and taught from a young age that the Bible is God’s Holy Word. While some adults question whether Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, or that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, I was brought up on these Bible truths and my heart was young and tender and I believed. After all these years of believing that the scripture is God’s Holy Word, I can now say that I know, without a doubt, I know the Bible is God’s Holy inspired Word. The foundation for my daily walk with God, the foundation for these devotions, my foundation for living, and the foundation for my salvation, is the Holy Bible, the Word of God.
