The apostles were prophets who spoke the very word of God. The Lord breathed His words of life through them to give us the Bible.
Why should I read the Bible?
It is our guide to give us direction. We all need help finding our way through life. God's Word is the help we need to live well, live right, and live forever.
Navigating life by guessing, using worldly wisdom sends you straight to the wrong end zone, HELL. Roy "Wrong Way" Riegels was one of the most talented running backs of his time. On January 1, 1929, the Golden Bears faced the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. Midway through the 2nd quarter, Riegels, who played center on both offensive and defensive lines and who was then playing in a role similar to that of the modern defensive nose guard or nose tackle, picked up a Fumble by Tech's Jack "Stumpy" Thomason. Just 30 yards away from theYellow Jackets' end zone, Riegels was somehow turned around and ran 69 yards in the wrong direction. Teammate and quarterback Benny Lom chased Riegels, screaming at him to stop. Known for his speed, Lom finally caught up with Riegels at California's 3-yard line and tried to turn him around, but he was immediately hit by a wave of Tech players and tackled back to the 1-yard line.
We have all heard of GPS (global positioning system), but what is most important is a God Positioning System. God speaks to us primarily through His Word. The Lord sits high above the earth and knows more than the satellites that guide your car. He gives us directions and guidance on how to navigate this life through HIs Word. He is asking us to listen, trust, and do. Acts 2:42 And they continued steadfastly
in the apostles' doctrine...
Psalms 1 : 1 - 6
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
