It's Good to Be Sure

There are many things we do not know. Some things we do not know because we have never investigated ? like the average life span of a kangaroo. Some things we do not know because they are beyond the scope of our limited experience on Planet Earth ? like the number of galaxies in the Universe. Some things we do not know because they are beyond our limited capacity to know as created beings ? the secret things belong to God. We need only to trust Him who does know. That’s faith.
God has revealed His will for man in the Scriptures. They are trustworthy, absolute, and objective. They reveal all we need to know for “life” and “godliness”. “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:2,3).
We accept the Scriptures at face value. They answer all the big questions about life. We can be sure of the answers because they come from the God we trust.
One who doubts the Scriptures must be miserable. His questions remain unanswered. His doubts make him like “a wave driven by the winds and tossed” (James 1:6). Isn’t it good to be sure?
