I was thinking, we read “how to” books, recipe books, self-help books, and the like. But if we would dig into the bible, which is our instruction manual for living holy, we will always have success. Whatever problem, whatever questions we have, there’s an answer in the word of God. The Word of God not only instructs us on how to live holy, but it tells husbands how to treat their wives and vice versa. The bible tells us parents how to “train” our children; It tells Pastors how to lead their flock. People write books based on teachings from the bible. The list goes on and on.
The bible reminds me of a recipe book. What I love about recipe books is there are recipes for main dishes, appetizers, desserts, side dishes and more. There are Mexican dishes, soul foods, Italian meals. Any person that cooks, has a desire to improve their cooking, or wants to learn how to cook can find a recipe in a cook book.
And so the Bible is similar. It matters not your background, gender, race or even religion. If you’re a Believer and have a desire to improve your walk with Christ, learn to live Holy or you just want to learn more of God… study the word of God and you will find what you need.
The Bible is not bias, but in fact is impartial and fair. It is an instruction manual, a recipe book for life, a self-help guide, a journal. It’s non-fiction, though. Everything you read is truth, so believe it and remain teachable always.
