UPHOLDING THE BIBLE
C.S. Lewis wrote, “You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you.” Many today hesitate to accept any truth outside of personal experience and opinion. We like to avoid arguments about personal behavior, morals, politics, and religions, by employing the well-worn phrase, "Well, whatever works for you; we all have our own truths.".
What if the truth is not just a point of view?
What if the truth is not just a list of rules — your
truth or anyone else’s?
What if the truth is not the ever-changing crowd
consensus, but instead, a person whom you get to
know, and who knows you?
This person’s story is told in the Bible. His name is
Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah.
THESE ARE BIG WHAT IF'S!
YESHUA offers the kind of freedom that comes from living and breathing what is true. Not only that but knowing Yeshua is the key to life or death for all eternity. Today, people hunger for an answer and desires to find something valuable that we can believe in and trust. While people are more informed than ever, linked together by technology, aware of many of the answers our culture provides, our instinctive hunger for truth continues, and we experience a gnawing dissatisfaction.
The good news is that there is an answer to this quest for truth found in the Bible. The Bible isn’t just here to offer us rules. The Bible offers a relationship with the Truth. Just like the main hero in an epic narrative, Jesus is the key to all of life. Yours. Mine. And the whole world’s. Lord, we pray that our hearts would be focused on the central story of Your Word — namely, the work You have accomplished through Jesus Christ. May this cause us to focus more on knowing You, bringing glory to Your Name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
