The only thing certain about life is uncertainty. Disasters strike without warning; medical emergencies happen with no previous symptoms; accidents occur when least expected. Those who are wise have a plan; they know what to do because of preparation. What, though, about preparation for the afterlife?
For certain, the afterlife will come. While the coming of the Lord will be without warning, there is no doubt that He will return. The apostle Peter wrote, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed” (2 Peter 3:10). Preparation for this day is essential and the good news is that God already has a plan!
God’s word, the Bible, is composed of sixty-six separate books, yetthey all focus on one major theme: God’s desire to save people from sin! If we had to meet God while still in our sins, the meeting would be disastrous for all of us since “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). By His grace and mercy God has prepared a way of escape through the precious blood of His Son Jesus Christ. By learning His plan, everyone has the opportunity to obtain the salvation that God so freely offers. Do you know this plan?
The Bible is the most heavily scrutinized book in human history. For millennia, its teachings have been studied, debated, castigated, and condemned; still, it stands. These ancient texts are as relevant now as the day they were first penned and these inspired words show the way to God. Would you like to know the story of the Bible? Would you like to learn the way back to God? If you have an hour, you have time to understand the “Big Picture of the Bible.” This study is offered with no gimmicks, tricks, or charges; it is simply Christians following the New Testament plan of salvation helping others to better understand how to prepare for the afterlife.
