The Word of God, but not the only Word of God: The Bible is not the sole record of God’s revelation but a holy and inspired part of God’s revelation, a precious fragment of the ongoing conversation between what God created and what God hopes for as filtered through the life of humanity.  The Bible’s poetry, prayers, stories, and songs infuse every corner of our worship service and our private prayer.  The Bible tells us the story of Jesus.  If we want to live our life as Jesus would if he were us, then we need to know how Jesus lived his life and how he thought, what he valued, what he taught, and what he did: we need to know the Bible.  But its stories provide more than history; they give us insight into our selves. Martin Luther said, “…the bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands; it lays hold of me.”  To be literate in this century, we need to know the source of the world’s best assumptions about how to live: we need to know the Bible.  Learn more in these presentations about how to renew your relationship with God’s Word.
