The Bible is a collection of sacred books written by ancient prophets and historians. These authors recorded the relationship between God and His people for over 4,000 years. Their inspired words are what we know today as the Holy Bible. Following the teachings found in the Bible helps us to know who God is, learn from good people who loved Him, and better understand how He wants us to live.
Selected Bible verses give can help us see glimpses of God’s love for His children, but to see the big picture, it helps to have the whole story. Sign up for a bible study session and two missionaries will sit down and help you explore the subjects in the Bible that matter most to you. After a brief study session, the Bible is yours to keep. From there, you’ll find a timeless source of strength that only gets better the more you read.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son who came to earth to save us from sin, sadness, loneliness, pain, and more. Jesus taught beautiful lessons about service and love and performed many miracles while He was on earth. In the Bible, we can read these stories and begin to know how we can overcome hard things with help from Jesus.
In the Bible, God gave His people ten commandments, or laws, to live by. These commandments require us to love God and treat others with respect. We shouldn’t lie, steal, kill, or commit adultery (see Exodus 20). God still expects us to follow the Ten Commandments today.
In the New Testament, Jesus showed us a better way to follow God. He taught that in addition to keeping the commandments, we must also keep our thoughts and heart pure. The core of faith in Jesus is following His two great commandments—loving God and loving our neighbor as ourselves.
Most importantly, the Bible teaches love. As we read stories about love in the Bible, we can become more like Jesus. We can care more, serve more, and forgive more. We can find love for God, our neighbors, and even our enemies.
