Many books in the world claim to guide you, tell you the truth while showing love all wrapped up in one. I have read a lot of great books but the one book that promises all of these things and delivers is THE BIBLE aka THE WORD OF GOD. If you never read the bible or even considered this a book you would read I challenge you to give it a try. Even if you don’t believe in God or a “Creator” you should still read this book. It has everything you could want out of a book: history, war, prophecies, love, murder, and more.
I started reading THE BIBLE because my boyfriend at the time was amazed by it and he constantly quoted biblical scriptures to me as they applied to a situation in my everyday life. I grew up a strict Roman Catholic (through my families’ traditions) so at the time I refused to read THE BIBLE because I thought I knew best already. That was a HUGE mistake on my part because no human in existence is better or knows more than God, our Creator.
When I started reading THE BIBLE at first I started small with the four gospels in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. That caught my attention and interest quite a bit so I went even further and finished the entire New Testament. This amazed me because it talked about Jesus who He is really, what he did for his people and for us. Well as a “Catholic” I knew about Jesus but I really didn’t know Him or was ever encouraged to try to get to know Him. THE BIBLE truly opened up my heart and my eyes on how amazing Jesus was and still is to this day because He is the one true living God.
Thanks to my boyfriend who is now my husband for loving me so much to open my eyes to the TRUE WORD OF GOD. Even when I would get angry or frustrated and would argue with him multiple times he never gave up on me. We are both Christians and working towards growing our relationship with Christ. THE BIBLE is an extreme eye-opener and all it takes is for you to sit down and start reading. Then when you are done read it again and again and again. Don’t ever stop reading this book. Currently, I am working on the Old Testament and just finished Chronicles 1.
THE BIBLE is the ultimate book and is a MUST READ for everyone whether you are a Christian or not. It is up to you to make sure you know who God is and how to live His way especially if you want to serve Him one day in His kingdom. I challenge you today to give it a try. There is truly nothing you can lose but a whole lot you can gain.
God bless you all!
