2 Timothy 3:16-17, “16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

“The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me.  I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E, BIBLE!”  That ole’ children’s song should be the anthem and theme of every disciple’s life for everyday of their life.  We don’t stand on the sinking sand of man’s wisdom and opinions, we stand with our head’s held high, shoulders straight, and our feet firmly planted on the “Thus says the Lord!”  If God said it, I believe it, and that settles it! Period.

Many have heard the Word of God but have been deceived by “evolutionary scientists,” “modern pop philosophers,” and the “vain babblings of arm chair textual critics.”  However, despite each and every attack on the Bible the sixty-six books of the Holy Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, remain firmly intact as the God breathed inerrant Word of the Lord.

People don’t disbelieve the Bible primarily because of textual issues, theological conundrums, or even for its miraculous claims; no, men and women who don’t love God’s Word do so because they love their sin.  Their evil desires allow the devil to keep their eyes blinded to its relevance and life changing power.  But if they will simply apply understanding to the teachings found in the Bible’s pages they could be given the gift of faith and be saved just like millions around the world, Matthew 13:19.

God will not force people to believe His Word; each person must personally decide if they will follow His ways of their own.  At the same time, whether man believes the Bible or not they will experience the truth of it both now and in the world to come.  The Word of God will come to pass and be the standard by which all men’s eternal souls will be judged, John 12:47-48.  Have you fully believed and obeyed God’s Word?

Here are three ways to stand for the Word of God, (1) Believe and accept the validity and veracity of the Bible in its present form; (2) Study the Word of God daily so you can rightly apply it to all of life’s situations; and lastly, (3) Preach, pray, and plug away.  Preach the Word everywhere you go, pray the Word of God everyday, and plug away until Jesus comes back!
