Special speaker Dave Scheer gives a foundational and critical message about the importance of and power found in reading the Bible every day.
The First Lie: “Has God indeed said….?” (Gen. 3:1)
Man lost eternal life by not believing in God’s Word. Man can gain it back by believing in His Word. Of course, His Word is Jesus Christ.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
Speaking of Jesus…
Would you take the opportunity to sit down and speak directly with Jesus? The only alternative to physically sitting down with God and talking with Him, is His word.
“He humbled you (the Jews in the exodus) and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know…that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.” Deuteronomy 8:3

“…the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13
God’s Word: “Supernatural Surgery”

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, for training in righteousness so that the man of God can may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
”It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” Peter then said, “You have the words of eternal life.” John 6:63, 68
