This is one question that is asked a lot, “Are you sure what you write about?’ The answer is, “Yes.” As sure as the Bible can be, I am sure what I write about.
Another questions that is asked is, “Where do you get your information?” The answer to that is, “From the Bible.” The other writers and myself get information from the internet to make stories that can be backed up by the Bible, but the Bible is the main source of our information.
The Bible is a source of any information you want. Want a good love story, Read Song of Solomon. Creation? Read Genesis 1 and 2. If you want to read about strong women, read about Deborah in Judges 4, and in the same chapter is a story about Jael who killed the enemy with a hammer and a tent peg.
The Old Testament is full of so many examples of love, forgiveness, and humility. David’s love for God is evident in the book of Psalm. He pictures us as sheep and God as the shepherd. God loves us as a shepherd loves his sheep. This is seen in not only the 23rd Psalm, but in others. We know when we hear God’s Word. We have to learn it and know when it is true. David is teaching us to know the Bible and know what is right and wrong in the teaching of the Word.
The New Testament has just as many things we can glean from. First is the birth of Christ. The world celebrates His birthday on December 25. If you notice on the television, it is cold and snowy on that date in Israel. The sheep are inside in the winter months. It is too cold for them to be outside. Christ was born in the warmer months when the sheep were outside, most likely in spring. Is the birth date that important? If it had been, I think God would have let us know when it was. Instead we are commanded to partake of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ on the first day of the week. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
We don’t have a command to worship His birth.
There are many examples of the apostle Paul preaching to government officials. Paul was such a humble man, but probably one of the most learned men of the apostles. He was not afraid to speak about Christ and His teachings, even though he was cast into prison many times. He was bold in that sense, but humble in a way he did not want to take any of the glory himself. He gave God the glory. He taught and wrote letters until he died. Such an amazing man.
There are endless things to learn in the Bible. In our study, we only touch the hem of the garment. In my humble attempts, I try to use examples found in the Bible. The Bible is the best resource ever.
