Why Not Read It?

          "I have heard about You by the hearing of the ear,

                                               But now my eye sees YOU."         

Recently I was in a Christian gathering and someone mentioned a New York Times best-selling book that tells how to walk with Jesus.  Later, somebody asked if I remembered what the author's name was.  I held up my Bible, and said  "No, but the Author of this Book tells us exactly how to walk with Himself."  

I keep trying to figure out why people want another human being to explain God, and our relationship to Him.  Our Creator reveals Himself in the Word so that each person can have personal illumination of who He is.  As the Word gives us understanding about God, we also get a startling clarification of ourselves. 

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness that the person of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 

Inspired by Holy Spirit, this amazing Book teaches us how to live on Planet Earth while we await the second coming of our Lord Jesus.
