The Bible Is Sufficient For What Matters Most
Traveling has its challenges. If you travel enough you quickly develop a good idea of what you need to take with you. There are basics, clothes and toiletries, that you need no matter what. After that it can get complicated. If you travel overseas, you’ll need your passport and power converter. If you stay at a camp you may need towels and a sleeping bag.
What about your Bible? Do you need to take your it? That’s an interesting question, isn’t it? Most of us read the Bible because we can, because we like to, and because people like me say you should. But do you need to?
Yes, you need your Bible. What’s cool is that as you read the Bible it’s able to do some amazing things in your life all by itself. By that I mean there are things the Bible will do for you that you don’t need a pastor or teacher or group leader to do for you. Others definitely contribute and help us but the Bible is sufficient on it’s own.
The Bible is important and in fact sufficient for everything we will ever need for our spiritual lives. There are 6 things the Bible will do for us that we don’t need any other book or person to help us do.
