BIBLE STUDY NOTES
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” Psalm 119:105
The Bible is the greatest book ever written. In it, God Himself speaks to man. Not only is it a book of divine instruction, it is a book that comforts in sorrow, guides us when perplexed, gives advice for our problems and rebukes our sins. It is Word of God – the written Word of God and comes from the Living Word, Christ Jesus, the ‘Logos’ of God.
In the beginning was the Word (logos), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
The study of the Word must lead us to the Living Word, Christ Jesus. All that the Bible offers – instruction, comfort, guidance, exhortation and salvation- is found in Him. He is the One of whom the Law and Prophets testify. See Luke 24:27, John 5:39, 1 Peter 1: 10-12
The Bible is unlike any other religious book. Despite many authors writing from three continents over nearly two thousand years, it maintains a perfect consistency of message. Its words point unerringly to Christ, whose work on the cross was ordained by God—the true author of the Bible—before the world began. Tim Chaffey

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
Victory Through Grace
Conquering now and still to conquer, rideth a King in His might; leading the host of all the faithful into the midst of the fight; see them with courage advancing, clad in their brilliant array, shouting the Name of their Leader, hear them exultingly say:
Conquering now and still to conquer, who is this wonderful King? Whence are the armies which He leadeth, while of His glory they sing? He is our Lord and Redeemer, Saviour and Monarch divine; they are the stars that forever, bright in His kingdom shall shine.
Conquering now and still to conquer, Jesus, Thou Ruler of all, thrones and their scepters all shall perish, crowns and their splendour shall fall, yet shall the armies Thou leadest, faithful and true to the last, find in Thy mansions eternal, rest when their warfare is past.
Not to the strong is the battle, not to the swift is the race, yet to the true and the faithful, victory is promised through grace.
