The Bible is the most read book in the world. However, for many people it is the most difficult to understood book in the world. The truth is there are many things in the Bible which are not easily understood. A failure to understand the Bible is not limited to those who do not believe in Jesus Christ. There are many Christians who still struggle with understanding the Bible. If you are one of those persons please do not despair. You are not alone. I see the inability to understand the Bible as an obstacle. It is an obstacle which prevents persons from knowing God. It is an obstacle that prevents Christians from growing “in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 KJV).
A map shows us the way. If we do not understand the map we will be lost. The Bible is a map designed by God. We cannot move forward in our Christian life if we do not understand God’s map. Maybe there is a scripture verse or a chapter that you don’t understand. Maybe there is an entire Book in the Bible you do not understand. The purpose of the Overcoming Life is to help everyone; especially believers in Jesus Christ overcome the difficulties and obstacles we all face in life. Therefore, the purpose of this blog is to help you overcome the inability to understand the Bible.
I have experienced confusion after reading a verse of scripture but I have also experienced the joy of understanding that same verse of scripture. I believe God wants everyone to understand the Bible. I would like us to go on a journey of understanding the Bible. Will you join me?
