God gave us the Bible to tell us the story of His infinite love and redemption for man. The Lord inspired Holy men to write down His sacred truths (2 Timothy 3:16). The human authors wrote exactly what God wanted them to write, and the result was the perfect and holy Word of God (Psalm 12:6; 2 Peter 1:21).
At the very beginning, the Bible narrates the story of how the Lord created humans with the ability to choose good or evil. And the scriptures instructed that to be citizens of God’s kingdom, humans can live eternally if they are obedient to God’s laws of love. To choose the devil’s way is to choose not to love which leads to eternal death (Psalm 37:9). Sadly, the human race rebelled against God. They disconnected themselves from God, the life giver, and hence lost their eternal life. Sin led to death (Romans 6:23).
But God felt infinite deep compassion over the human race and planned to send His Son to redeem them. The innocent Son of God, the Creator of all, died to set humans free again and deliver them from eternal death (John 3:16).
The Bible presents the good news of God’s salvation that became available for those that accept the death of Jesus on their behalf. And those that accept Christ’s death must live a life of obedience to God. But those that reject Jesus’ death on their behalf will have to die for their own sins (John 1:12).
The amazing Bible truth is that the Lord not only offers forgiveness for sin but He also gives the power to obey His law. For He grants a new godly nature to His children (1 Corinthians 15:57). Thus, the Lord delivers His children from the clutches of the devil completely. “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:28).
Salvation and love is the central theme of the Bible (Isaiah 45:22). The Bible is God’s road map to heaven (John 6:63). I invite you today to get to know your Heavenly Father’s love by reading His book-the Holy Bible.
