We Need the Word of God in Order To Be Saved
Adventure 1: God's Word -- The Bible
Can we really get to know God without His Word?
No. God wants us to know Him by growing faith in the truth of His Word. Romans 10:17 – So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
This Truth Makes
All around us, Creation teaches us about God in a general way. Even your own conscience, or your sense of right and wrong, teaches you that there is a God. But God’s Creation and your conscience are not enough to lead you to saving faith in Christ. We need something more specific.
Even though God’s Creation and our consciences teach us that there is a God, they are not enough to give us the gift of saving faith. Faith must come from God – and faith comes only by the Word of God.
True faith is what you need to believe with confidence that everything God says is so – really is so. But true faith is even more than that. If you have true faith, you can believe that all of God’s Word applies to you, individually and personally. It is only by faith that we can come to intimately know God in a personal relationship.
