Recently the cord to our exercise equipment came loose and for some reason I couldn’t see where it plugged into the machine. “No problem” I said to myself, “you can find out how to do about anything on YouTube.”
So, it took me about two minutes to find the answer I was looking for. I have figured out how to do a lot of things I didn’t know how to do through YouTube.
As I was thinking about this, it reminded me that there are a lot of questions about life that I would like answers to and YouTube alone cannot help me. But there is one place that has all the answers and that place is the Bible.
The scriptures tells us how to live out the kind of life that pleases our heavenly Father. The scriptures give us guidelines on how to be good husbands, wives or children. It tells us how to treat others and how to not think of ourselves too highly. It gives us the answer to the origin of life and what the end of the world is going to look like.
The most important information we can get from the Bible is that it gives us instruction on how to get into a right relationship with God and how to end up in this wonderful place called heaven.
It tells us in John 3:16 that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son (Jesus) that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”.
If we accept the forgiveness of our sins brought about through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, then we will be in a right relationship with God and we will get to spend eternity in heaven. The good news is that the scriptures teach us that the invitation is to all.
