COLUMN: Scriptures Speak

It's Good to Be Sure
by Jimmy Jividen

There are many things we do not know. Some things
we do not know because we have never investigated
— like the average life span of a kangaroo. Some
things we do not know because they are beyond the
scope of our limited experience on Planet Earth —
like the number of galaxies in the Universe. Some
things we do not know because they are beyond our
limited capacity to know as created beings — the
secret things belong to God. We need only to trust
Him who does know. That's faith.

God has revealed His will for man in the
Scriptures. They are trustworthy, absolute, and
objective. They reveal all we need to know for
"life" and "godliness". "Grace and peace be
multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of
Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to
us all things that pertain to life and godliness,
through the knowledge of Him who called us by
glory and virtue" (2 Peter 1:2,3).

We accept the Scriptures at face value. They
answer all the big questions about life. We can be
sure of the answers because they come from the God
we trust.

One who doubts the Scriptures must be miserable.
His questions remain unanswered. His doubts make
him like "a wave driven by the winds and tossed"
(James 1:6). Isn't it good to be sure?
