The Bible is many centuries old. The last book of the Old Testament was written long before the birth of Christ while the New Testament was completed towards the end of the first century AD. Yet the message of this ancient book remains new and fresh in every generation. Because it is the life-giving Word from the living God, it has been a source of strength and comfort through the ages for millions of believers. In a world filled with uncertainty, people are unsure of what faith means to them. Unlike Paul, they are not convinced of God’s unshakable love for them. Thus they seek assurance within themselves and temporary truths while losing sight of the eternal wisdom contained in the Word of God.
