Have you ever tried to do something hard without having someone teach you? You probably needed a little help.

Life can be hard sometimes. But God provided us with help to teach us. Our help is in the Bible. But it does so much more than that . . .

A profile of the One Who loves you
The Bible is a love letter from our Creator. He loves you so much that He came to suffer and die so that you could live with Him forever.

Although the Bible may seem complex, God promises that His Spirit will guide you into all truth. He will reveal to you the important facts about Him and what it means to follow Him.

Don't think of the Bible as a book that only specially trained people can understand. The Bible is for everyone. It is full of God's thoughts about Himself, and about us: the people He has loved from before the creation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).

What can you find in the Bible?
You can find real help for your life today. Hope to keep you going. Truth that sets you free and gives your life meaning. Guidance for your relationships with people. Most of all, it tells you about Jesus, who said, "the volume of the book [Bible] is written about me" (Psalm 40:7).

The Bible is God’s story. Jesus created and sustains everything by His powerful word (Hebrews 1:3). Yet He humbled Himself and took on a weak human body for us (Philippians 2:8-9). He faced every temptation we have, yet remained innocent and pure. He understands our sufferings because He suffered too. He allows us to be completely forgiven and made perfect because He died on the cross. Jesus showed His power over death when He rose from the dead. Jesus is the true author of the Bible, just as He is the author and perfecter of our eternal salvation.

Look to Jesus in His Word
Reading the Bible is not just looking at stories about Jesus; it really is looking at Jesus. The word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12). It’s alive because Jesus is the Word (John 1:1). Though He died for you, Jesus is alive today. He knows your thoughts and plans. As you spend time with Him through His Word, He gives you sure and certain hope that becomes an anchor for your soul (Hebrews 6:19).

God uses His power for His glory and our good.

God’s Power in Your Life: Power with Purpose
God uses His power for His glory and our good.

We know that God is always at work for the good of everyone who loves him. They are the ones God has chosen for his purpose.

Romans 8:28
God has forgiven you; God has taught you; God has empowered you to do His work. But what is the purpose of His work in your life?

1. It’s For The Glory of God:
Have you ever wondered why you exist? What is your purpose here on earth?

Jesus tells us what He wants from us: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind” and “Love others as much as you love yourself” (Matthew 22:37, 39). Everything we do must be to bring honor to the Lord. He empowers you to bring Him glory in your home, in your community, and in the world.

In all of human history, God has been trying to reach out to people; and He empowers His followers to show others His greatness, His goodness, and His love:

“Everyone on this earth, sing praises to the Lord.
Day after day announce, ‘The Lord has saved us!’
Tell every nation on earth, ‘The Lord is wonderful and does marvelous things!
The Lord is great and deserves our greatest praise!
He is the only God worthy of our worship’” (I Chronicles 16:23-25).

Our purpose — your purpose as a Christian — is to praise the Lord, “so at the Name of Jesus, everyone will bow down. And to the glory of God the Father, everyone will openly agree, ‘Jesus Christ is Lord!’” (Philippians 2:10-11).

2. It’s The Path of The Righteous Man:
Psalm 23 rejoices in the comfort and provision that the Lord gives His people. It talks about how He leads us to victory in spite of the overwhelming odds, ensuring us of His eternal love, peace, and life. All these things are good! But why does He do them?

The Psalm explains, promising that the Lord “leads me along the right paths” (Psalm 23:3). The Lord is true to His Word! He has promised good for His people. When people witness this goodness, they can recognize that God is great. “For His Name’s sake” shows that God wants to uphold this reputation, this fame, for being so good.

As you experience God’s goodness, He empowers you to bring Him glory. And God is glorified by the goodness in your life.

Pray this week:

Dear Lord, empower me to experience Your goodness and to bring You glory! Amen

Christ is out life!

Scripture: “Christ is our life. When He comes again, you will also be with Him to share His shining-greatness.”  (Colossians 3:4)

Do you know that Jesus wants to be more than just your Savior?

We say God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Is the plan just taking you to heaven when you die?

No, Christ is our life. That means now and for eternity.
