1 Peter 1:18-25
Let’s start this study with a new love and appreciation for the Bible – God’s precious Book to men. One of the questions each of us ought to ask early in our Christian life is, “How important is the Bible to me?”
Think about this: Men have been writing books for centuries, and some have made an impact upon the world while others have long since forgotten.
The most promising and best-selling books written by men will one day turn to dust and be forgotten, but the Bible – The Word of God will endure forever.
Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
Isaiah certainly knew what he was saying in Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”
Before we go any further let’s first of all look at where the Bible came from:
Exodus 4:10-15, “And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart. And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.”
