Scriptures: Hebrews 1:1-2, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 1:2, Colossians 1:10
How do we know anything about God? We can only know about Him if He tells us about Himself and the primary way that God speaks to us, is through His Word--the Bible. God gave us the Bible as His revelation--He has revealed Himself to us through His Word. God gave us His Word so that we could know Him, love Him and teach others about Him. In this message, Dr. Merritt acknowledges our dependence on and the central importance of the Bible--the way God speaks to me.
"I want you to look at the Bible in a totally different way than maybe you have every seen it before. In effect, this is God’s autobiography. Do you know what the purpose of this book is? It is so you and I can know God. This book is, first of all, a book about God. It tells us all we need to know and all we will ever need to know about God--who He is, what He is like, what He does, how we can know Him and what His plan is for our life." --Dr. Merritt
