Bible Story:

Psalm 1:1-6

When a person learns God’s Word and uses it in their lives, they experience real joy and happiness. Knowing God’s Word helps us know who God is, how to live for Him, and how to obey Him. Our paths are made straight when we know God’s Word.


God Is Truth – God Gives His Word

God does not just know what is true, He is truth. When God speaks everything He says comes into being. The God who spoke everything into existence determines what is true and what is false. In His grace, God not only is truth, but also gives us the chance to know what is true by speaking. God speaks through His Word (the Bible), and the message of the Bible is given to us by Him. The Bible allows us to know what is true, what is false, and gives us knowledge of the truest thing in the universe, Himself.
