Nuff Said!...John 21:25

John 21:25 Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. 

The Holy Spirit wrote the Bible through man. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. The fact that God gave us the Bible is an evidence and illustration of His love for us. The term "revelation" simply means that God communicated to mankind what He is like and how we can have a right relationship with Him. These are things that we could not have known had God not divinely revealed them to us in the Bible. Although God's revelation of Himself in the Bible was given progressively over approximately 1500 years, it has always contained everything man needs to know about God in order to have a right relationship with Him. If the Bible is truly the Word of God, then it is the final authority for all matters of faith, religious practice, and morals. Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear. 

Imagine how big the Bible would be if the Holy Spirit kept on writing! He didn't have to go any further than what he did. God said all he needed to say. Next time you are left wondering why about something in your life, reference the Bible and see what God has to say about it. Make it a point to seek God's perspective. The WWJD "What Would Jesus Do" movement originated in 1896 in a novel by Charles Sheldon titled In His Steps but became popular in the 1990's. Imagine a new movement, WDGSAT "What Does God Say about That?" Why dont we seek God's understanding when it comes to the issues we face in this world? One answer! Our sinful nature!

Thank you Father for your Word, your truth and how fortunate we are to have it so accessible to us in our time. Through technology, we can be conneced to your truth at any time and place more than ever before in history! We have no excuse to be ignorant! Help me Father to turn to you and your truth with every trial I face and may you give me understanding as well as discernment so I can apply your truth to my life and help me guard against satan's attacks. I love you Father, Blessed be your name always. In the name of Jesus I pray, AMEN!
