We over-complicate our faith.
Whether you have been a Christian since you were a young child, or you're still seeking Truth, it is really so simple, we miss it.
Jesus is the Word of God.
So, if you want to get to know Jesus; get to know the Word of God.
The Bible is a collection of inspired books (66 in total) which tell us stories about other seekers; believers, non-believers, people just like us who struggled and wrestled with their faith, lives and loves just as we do.
You may have come across the amazing young man on YouTube who not only recited from memory all the books of the Bible but related each book to a picture, or type, of Jesus Christ.
Below I have adapted his list slightly, as I wanted to share this with you all. When you start to see the connections between ancient scriptures, written by men and women who never met each other, lived completely different lives, over many centuries... your sense of awe and wonder will only grow.
Is the Bible always easy to understand? Definitely not. But there's something about these texts that weave into one another in a way that simply must have a supernatural Conductor at work.
Enjoy this list. Share it with your friends and Bible Study group. Heck, I'm even going to use it when I preach!
Let's share the wonder of this Super-Book, this library of Life, this faith-giving, living Word. Its wonders never end.
