For most people, the Bible is not the first resource we turn to when facing issues or challenges in our lives. Lots of people view it as an ancient book documenting the history of a religious people thousands of years ago. As followers of Jesus Christ, we know that the Bible is much more than a history book; it's the story of God's relationship with all humankind.
As we seek to grow in faith, share Christ, and serve others, reading the Bible is invaluable. The Bible is a guidebook for navigating our lives as well. We desire to put God first in our lives, find our place in God's story, and claim the truth about who we are as God's people.
