How Does the Bible help us today?

Many people view the Bible as simply a book, an old book, a ‘good book’ also as an out-of-date and ‘irrelevant” to modern life.

Yet the Bible has answer to the questions we all have, what does the future hold? What happens when we die? and will we ever see peace on earth?

It says of itself in Psalm 119: 105 Your word is a lamp to my foot, And a light for my path.

This describes the Bible as the Light that can guide us. As well as answering the big questions, it also gives solid advice on everyday things:-

  • how to find and keep a good friend
  • how to cope with stress
  • how to find a real purpose and contentment in life

It also as Romans 15: 4 For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope. The scriptures offer us comfort that we might have hope. The hope is the prospect of being able to “Enjoy Life Forever” in a paradise here on the earth free from war, hunger and death.
