Looking in the right place for answers

May 19th, 2010

There is an advert on  TV at the moment that shows various people seeking health advice from different sources.

One lady is asking a bus driver about her persistent cough. Another person is asking a man in a laundry mat if she should take the rest of her prescription even though she is feeling better.

The advert is trying to show the importance of getting the right advice or looking in the right place by asking you Pharmacist or Doctor about important health issues. I think it illustrates the point really well.

In the same way I think it is important to look in the right place when wanting to have your question
s about faith and life answered. It wouldn’t make sense to look in a cooking book for answers about life and death!

The same goes for looking at books about Astrology, Tarot Cards, Buddism, Hinduism, Scientology etc, you are not going to find the real answers from God about issues of life, death and eternity.

The Bible is God’s Book and it is the place He wants us to look for all of life’s questions. It starts is Genesis 1:1 where it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. Yes God created everything. It ends with the words of Revelation 22:20-21 telling us that Jesus is coming back.

God created the world and in His time, He will culminate history. The Bible speaks of this all the way through. It also talks about God’s great love for mankind and His greatest desire to be in relationship with each of us. It is His top priority.

If you are thinking through the issues of life, death and eternity, you can look at no better place than the Bible. It is the right place to look. If you don’t have access to a Bible you can read one online here at BibleGateway.com.

God Bless,
