Our journey has come to its end. As each of us travel through this place and time, and have journeyed over these past 5 years, we have come upon many sites where we stopped a moment to consider its influence on our journey but as we considered yesterday our final destination was and always will be the “eternal city”.
Today we conclude with what vehicle we use that will help us reach our destination. The world offers a great many models on the showroom floor (secularism, marxism, post modernism, new spirituality, islam, etc.). Some are for show only and won’t even start. Only one can be driven off (Christianity) with a GPS (the Word of God) that guarantees we will reach our destination.
That Word of God spoken of since the time of the prophets is the Holy Scriptures (Romans 1:2) that is “living and powerful, piercing and discerning all thoughts and intents of the heart”(Hebrews 4:12). In fact as Paul shares in Philippians 2:16 the Word of God is life itself and isn’t that what everyone seeks-life.
This day there is only one travel guide or vehicle we need. It is the Holy Bible of our Christian faith. It consists of Old Testament law as Christ acknowledged in the words of Mark 7 and New Testament Gospel. It is God’s revelation to us seen and spoken through the life of Christ and recorded in the Holy Word. It is THE ONE VEHICLE THAT WILL TAKE US TO OUR DESTINATION.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: The Word of God is the only writing that has any true worth.
DEVOTIONAL VERSE FOR TODAY: Philippians 2:16 “the Word of God is the Word of life”.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord thank you for Your Word.
QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:
- How does Christianity differ from all other worldviews?
- Why is the Bible God’s one and only recorded Word?
- Why does the Bible continue to remain the most sought after book year after year?
- Are you a devout Christian and if so why?
