(Genesis) A Challenge For The New Year

So many people read the Bible in order to prove it wrong. They assume that because there is no evidence some people named in Scripture ever existed, that there are certain cities mentioned in the Bible which can’t be traced, that dates on a timeline don’t add up to their satisfaction, that means the Bible isn’t true. They rationalize Old Testament prophecy by saying someone must have added the prophecy after the fact because it’s impossible for things to occur hundreds of years after the prophecy exactly as the prophet foretold.

Yet archaeologists and historians continue to uncover tangible evidence that – guess what – the Bible was right all along.

Rather than reading Scripture, assuming it’s wrong, why not give it a chance? Why not read it assuming it’s true, that the author is God, that He inspired men to write down His Words so that you can know Him?

We are so quick to believe CNN, or FOX, or Facebook, professors, authors, politicians, and influencers. And most of us don’t even try to discern the truth from what we hear from them.

I want to challenge you to pull out a copy of God’s Word and read it this year. Ask God to reveal Himself to you in those pages, and assume He will. I’ve had people tell me they read the Bible and it meant nothing. Let’s just say, I doubt they sincerely asked God to give them understanding. Jeremiah 29:13 says:

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

That means you, dear one. Start today. Ask God to draw you to Himself. If you don’t want to start in the Old Testament, read the New. Seek God with all your heart…

Then buckle up. You are in for the ride of your life. And you will be forever changed.

      That is such a great idea! I think keeping each other accountable will result in so many blessings. I’ll be praying that each of you will get to know God better, and make you stronger to be the effective witnesses He wants you to be. I think you are in for an exciting year.

    Thank you for this. It’s a sad, terribly sad, fact that the great majority of professing Christians have no idea – or really care – what the Bible says. I fear that they are just ‘churchians,” that they know nothing of Scripture or the God who gave it to us. He could have just let us all go, and perish in our sins. But He went to great lengths – inconceivable lengths – to prevent that. But the Bible lies dust-covered and neglected on the table. And, yes, I know. Many people have the Bible on their devices. I do, too, but I prefer the actual book. I’m old-fashioned that way.
    Again, thank you.

      Thank you for pointing us to Jesus. Oh, if we only would read God’s Word and get to know Him first-hand we would see the depth of His love, and the sacrifice He made because of it. (I like to turn the pages too!)
