What is the Bible to you?
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 9, 2018
Is the Bible just a book or is it “The” Book? Is it just another book of religion? Or can you and I claim that, in his Word, God has spoken completely and definitively as our final source of truth and authority?
You were born to know God.
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 6, 2018
… he has put eternity into man's heart….
God has put it in our DNA, as human beings, to know him! Of all his creations, humanity was created exclusively for the purpose of knowing and worshipping God.
How can you and I know this? Because in our conscience is a small voice that tells us there’s something more to this life… there’s Someone greater.
But our conscience can’t tell us everything we need to know. In fact, it’s a dangerous thing to say, “Let your conscience be your guide,” because the conscience can become corrupt and unable to discern right from wrong.
So how do we really get to know who God is? God himself tells us who he is!
God supernaturally, completely, and forever intervened in your life and mine when he revealed himself through Christ Jesus! This is the very revelation the Scripture refers to in John 1:1 that says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Jesus is the living Word!”
Have you found him? He’s not hiding! Read his Word and I promise you’ll find him. “… Seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deuteronomy 4:29).
This is your life purpose: to know God and to love him more day by day.
GOD HAS PUT IT IN OUR DNA, AS HUMAN BEINGS, TO KNOW HIM!
God is seeking you!
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 5, 2018
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
— Psalm 19:1
God made you and me to know him. This is one of the most extraordinary things about the Scriptures. God is constantly and eternally revealing himself to us. He hungers for us to know him, love him, follow him, and serve him all the days of our lives.
The Scripture says no man seeks after God, but that God seeks us out and reveals himself to us. For instance, every human being on earth can look up into a starry night sky and see the testimony of his glory. This is a wonderful thing, but by itself this revelation is incomplete. So God has given us another revelation… the revelation of conscience.
God has placed within us a sense of accountability and a need to know right from wrong. We have an innate desire to know something bigger and better beyond ourselves and beyond this world.
Maybe your conscience is asking, “What will happen to me after this life? Am I made for something more?”
When you ask these kind of questions this is your conscience… your innermost “you” yearning and aching to know the God of creation and the one who made you in your mother’s womb.
You are made for more! You’re made to know the God who made the heavens and the earth!
GOD IS CONSTANTLY AND ETERNALLY REVEALING HIMSELF TO US
Happy Fourth of July
