God's Word

God's Word, the Bible, does some very important things for us and to us.

1) God's Word connects us to God.  Make no doubt about it.  God's Word helps us understand Him and is a revelation of Himself in the world.  Make sure you read it to connect yourself to Him.

2) God's Word answers the questions of Life. Why are we here?  Who am I?  What is my purpose? There is no science that can answer these questions for you.  Only the Word of God can.  So again, read the Bible and find out the answers for yourself.

3) God's Word is comforting.  This world is not the place for comfort.  We are all going through a  hard fight.  But God's Word shines into our heart and gives us HOPE!  As the Heidelberg Catechism puts it very well:

Q. What is your only comfort
in life and in death?

A. That I am not my own,
but belong—
body and soul,
in life and in death—
to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.

How comforting is THAT!!?

There are many other things the Word of God does as well...but these should keep you busy.  How busy?  Probably until we meet the Lord face-to-face.

Blessings All!
