“Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name” (Psalm 86:11 KJV).
Are you like King David, the author of Psalm 86? Do you pray for God to show you His will, His way, and His truth?
God wrote a book, the Holy Bible, because a book is permanent, mobile, and can be available to everyone. In order to know God, we must allow Him to reveal Himself to us through His written Word. Everything that God wants you to know about Him and His plan for the universe is found in the Holy Scriptures. God will not speak to us apart from His written Word.
We read in 1 Corinthians 2:9,10: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
God the Holy Spirit teaches us about Himself through His written Word. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16). In the Bible, we learn that: (1) God is one God in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7), and (2) God the Father’s overall plan is to exalt His Son Jesus Christ as the Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth (Ephesians 1:9,10; Philippians 2:9-11).
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5,6). Jesus Christ, the Grand Person of the Bible, shed His sinless blood for your sins, He was buried, and He was resurrected the third day for your justification (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25). Will you trust exclusively in Christ as your personal Saviour?
Jesus Christ is knowable. He has always known you. Do you know Jesus Christ?
