Spreading The Truth One Byte At A Time
By Ron Bender© 2009, 2013
Do you struggle with the idea that the Bible is the inspired word of God? If so than you are not alone.
For years I claimed to be a Christian. I would read and memorize scriptures. But not anymore! By submitting my life to Christ and his kingdom – through his Word – I have found freedom. I have found that freedom not by believing in God or by living a rule driven life. I have found freedom only in the truth. That truth is that God does exist whether I acknowledge him or not and that the Bible is His inspired word written to me. I like to think of it as a "Love Letter" I have learned that the outcomes of events, what people think about me, or whether or not I succeed is not the the most important thing in this universe.
Jesus Loves Me “This I Know” For The Bible Tells Me So!
I have found that the most important thing in the universe is the creator of it and He wrote ME a love letter.
Do you have memories of letters sent to you from someone you fell in love with? How you cherished them, read the over and over, and found it very hard to throw them away even after they were no longer in your life. This is how I treat the bible today. It is not a book of stories or do's and don't's but written from a loving God to show me more about Him and lead me in a way that he know is best for me.
The old old song "Jesus Loves Me" brings me to the realization that it is only when I know this as the truth, not from someone telling me, but from His own words as a love letter to me ....the Bible.
Bible Bytes is my Journey through this love letter. It is a collection of thoughts and prayers based on the truth that God loves me and wants the best for me.
Each day write the “Fear Not” Scripture down on an index card so you can carry it with you all day. Re-read it and turn it over and over in your mind and let it lead you into personal prayers. Try to memorize the passages that especially speak to your struggles.
Talk to a friend about what you’re learning and the struggles you’re having. Pray together. Be “Christ’s Ambassadors” to one another (2 Corinthians 5:20).
Just MY say so is not very convincing I know. So I prepared a page for you to study the reasons we question the Bible. Read this page in "Mind Bender" before you start your journey through the Bible. Remember you are on a journey you do not want to get lost on the way. You need a reliable source to direct your path. Just like taking a trip these days to places unknown we use Map Quest, On Star, Goggle, if the information was not reliable we would end up in a field or worse.
Sorry To inconvenience you but Many of the links do not work at present time. Like all of us during our busy day I will try to hurry and upload all the files as quickly as possible. Stay tuned and enjoy!
