Can we rely upon God’s Word as a faithful and trusted source of information? Many people today are questioning this fact more and more today because our society has evolved and changed over time and people have challenged the Bible’s relevance to today’s world. Worse yet, it is sometimes an issue of how it is contrary to today’s lifestyle choices. Even church-going people (and some Christians are included here) do not embrace the Word of God in its entirety. Some verses may be followed or agreed while others are ignored altogether. This is because while many recognize the Bible as a good source of information, it is not deemed as reliable or worthy of our trust. Is the Bible to be relied upon and is it a trustworthy source of information? Well, as much as we have changed over the years, God’s Word has not changed…ever. As much as some do not want to admit it, it is still very relevant to today. First, consider that the Bible was not originated by man (as some would argue). “First of all, you should know this: no prophecy of Scripture comes from one’s own interpretation, because no prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, moved by the Holy Spirit, men spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:20-21). It is not about how we interpret life from our own perspective; it is more about the Holy Spirit working in your life…the working of God in your life. Next, please note that the Word of God is perfect and it is a rejuvenating testimony! It is consistent and without blemish or errors and it is complete. It provides those who are willing to read and accept its teaching the experience needed to live a joyful and abundant life (Psalm 19:7-9). God’s Word will stand forever. It did not end with the passing of the disciples who followed Christ. “The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the Word of our God remains forever” (Isaiah 40:8). “Lord, Your testimonies are completely reliable; holiness is the beauty of Your house for all the days to come” (Psalm 93:5). God’s Word remains firm, and it remains consistent and timeless. As long as there is a human race, there is a need for God’s Word to be proclaimed and presented throughout the entire world (Matthew 24:14; 28:18-20). The challenge that we have is to have faith in God’s Word and trust the reliability of His Word. We are to continually bolster ourselves with Scripture in how we live for Jesus Christ and with our daily reading and devotional time (Romans 12:1-2).
