One-Word Themes for All the Books of the Bible by Elizabeth George and Jim George

Themes of the Bible

How to access a more rewarding and fulfilling life? Good news! You can have it. Your better life is as close and as easy as picking up your Bible every day and taking time to let God speak directly to you through it. When you do this, you’ll know what to do and how to handle everything that comes along in life. This may seem too good to be true.

Any Other Book

At first impression, the Bible looks and feels like any other book. Yet God Himself inspired and directed its more-than-40 different authors over hundreds of years to produce a singular message of salvation. Though the Bible is over 2000 years old and it has faced countless attempts to destroy it, the Bible is the most popular book that has ever been printed.

These facts should cause us to reflect. If the Bible’s claims are true–that it is a message from God about our eternal destiny–isn’t it worth our effort and time to read its message every day? You will never know the significance of God’s Word until you open it and read it for yourself.

Just think — the Bible is all yours, all the time. And it’s the ultimate source of truth and power. God’s Word makes its way into your heart. It charges your soul. And it changes your views about yourself, other people, and the things that are happening in your life.

Here are some suggestions to keep in mind as you read and study the Bible:

  • Realize the Bible’s usefulness (2 Peter 1:3)
  • Read with a mind open to the truth (2 Timothy 2:15)
  • Respond to the Bible’s message (John 3:16)
  • Resolve to live out its truths (1 Samuel 12:24)
  • Reap the blessings of obeying and knowing God’s Word (Psalm 1:1-3)
