“All Your words are true; all Your righteous laws are eternal.”
When you were young, your parents probably warned you not to believe everything you read. The advice your parents gave was credible: just because something is in print doesn’t necessarily make it true. So, why then, should you believe the Bible? Why should you trust what it says?
One reason is that the Bible tells of real people and real events. It does not consist of stories someone made up, (unlike other ancient books); the Bible’s stories have the credibility of truth about them, why? Because they actually happened…
You and I can trust the Bible because it was written by people who actually witnessed what happened and wrote it down so future generations would have an accurate record of events. Peter, an eyewitness to Jesus’ ministry, wrote, “We did not follow cunningly devised fables…but were eyewitnesses” (2 Peter 1:16).
The opening verse of this article is from the longest chapter in the Bible; Psalm 119, it contains 176 verses, written acrostically none the less, yet the most profound finding of Psalm 119 is that the Word of God is mentioned in 174 of the 176 verses, revealing the significance God places on His Word.
God the Father, through His written Word is revealing to you and I that we can trust the Bible because it points us to the most important event in human history: the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is through His written Word that we discover the Living Word…Jesus Christ.
