I love the Bible, especially the New Testament, which my seminary class is reading this year. The words of Christ, the things He did, the miracles He performed and the sacrifice He made have become real for me. I can't imagine what life would be like without the words of Christ to provide comfort, clarity, and peace. Some of my favorite Bible scriptures are: "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven," "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the kingdom of heaven," "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name...," "For unto us a child is born...the Prince of Peace," "For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
I know the Bible is the word of God, and we can find the words of Christ in its pages.
