Carly continued our series on the basics of Christianity looking at why and how we should read the Bible.
God continually speaks to his people - primarily through the Bible.
Jesus says in Matthew 4:4 that "Man shall not live on bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God"
Physical hunger is satisfied with bread, spiritual hunger is satisfied by the word of God
The Word of God nourishes us, feeds us.
Christianity is a revealed faith. We cannot find out about God unless God reveals himself to us.
God revealed himself in a person - Jesus.
He is God's ultimate revelation.
Mainly we know about Jesus through God's revelation recorded in the Bible
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Scripture is God speaking through human agents.
100% Human and 100% God
