Truth for Christian Living

Bookstores are bursting with self-help books, most of which are products or byproducts of the psychology industry. Requests for books to help with this or that problem abound, as if there is one special book, other than the Bible, that can do the trick. Self-help books promise way more than they supply. However, there is one book that supplies exactly what it promises. The Bible is the book that reveals God's Truth for Christian living.

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter:1:3-4).

The Bible is the source of truth for Christian living. God has given us His Word, which is the truth about Himself, the universe, and mankind. He has given us His truth concerning life and eternity. The Bible gives us truth that reveals the way of salvation for sinners, the way of sanctification and spiritual growth for believers, and the hope of eternity with Jesus. As believers follow God's truth, they find love, joy, and peace, as well as purpose and direction for serving God and one another.

If you are looking for truth about God, about yourself, about others, and about how to relate to one another, you will find that truth in the Bible. If you find it elsewhere, it can be traced back to the Bible if it is indeed true. However, if you find something that looks like God's truth outside the Bible, it has very likely been contaminated with opinion and is no longer God's truth. Therefore, go to the source, the very Word of God, for all you need to live in a manner pleasing to Him. (
