What Is The Bible? Why Do I Need It?
Some people think the Bible is just a book, others claim it stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, while I see it simply for what it is, the Word of God.
God is a God who is relational, He's relatable and He's close. He understands that we learn through experience, through instruction, correction and encouragement. He also knows what we need before we even know we need it.
