The Story of the Bible
By Billy Graham

The message of Jesus Christ, our Savior, is the story of the Bible—it is the story of salvation; it is the story of the Gospel; it is the story of life, peace, eternity and Heaven. The whole world ought to know the story of the Bible.

If this Gospel is hidden today from anyone reading these words, it is hidden because you have never opened your Bible—or you have opened it with a closed mind.

The story of the Scriptures is the story of your redemption and mine through Jesus Christ. The Scriptures teach the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Gospel. His death, burial and resurrection is the Gospel story, and without Him you are lost and doomed.

The Bible teaches that there is a hell and a Heaven. The way to Heaven is by receiving and trusting Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). The Bible says, “The soul who sins shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20).

And the Bible says the only way to bridge the gap between us and God is through Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).

Today you can accept the Christ of the Bible. You can know peace of soul, peace of conscience and peace of mind by letting Him come into your heart by faith. Will you now, as you read these words, open your heart to Christ?

Today’s Prayer

Dear God, thank You for the Good News of the Bible, 
that through it we find our way to You. 
Thank You that in its pages we can see Jesus and we can have peace. 
In Jesus’ Name. 

Amen.
