All Scripture is God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Bible claims that God is its Author. Such a claim has profound implications if true!! If true, then when I read it I am reading something that comes directly from the Creator. I hold in my hands a treasure of immeasurable worth. If true, I should expect to find answers to basic questions such as: Why did God create me? Why is there so much suffering in the world? What does He want from me? Does God care about me? Where do I go when I die?
But, how can one be sure that God is in fact the Author? There are of course many who challenge this claim but, only the Bible has fulfilled prophecy (Isa 53 is one of many examples) and a risen Saviour. But more than this, if the Bible is truly from God then surely He will confirm this as you read it. That He is the Author will be self-evident. In other words, if you come to the Bible with a heart that wants to know the truth, He will make sure you find it. God has no desire to keep in the dark those who seek His light. The most important revelation in the Bible concerns God Himself. He makes Himself known in its pages. He has a passion to be honoured for who He really is.
Read a few chapters of the Gospel of John. Look for God’s Promises.
