Just before a platoon of soldiers crossed a minefield they received an intelligence report mapping out the precise location of every mine. They made good use of that information!
Lots of people think God’s Word is a list of do’s and don’ts’rules to make people act good in lieu of having a good time. But nothing is further from the truth. The Bible is God’s intelligence report. Its instruction maps life’s minefields and is His kindness toward us.
Understanding the value of God’s Word is tied to your understanding of God, who He really is. God is more than a celestial rule-maker. He loves you and wants you to have a good life. The Bible is His map and intelligence report. It’s worthy of your study, and He is worthy of knowing.
