All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. -2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)
In the BBC science fiction TV series, Doctor Who, the hero known only as The Doctor travels through space and time in a ship called the TARDIS, that curiously looks like an old British police box (a blue, wooden box a little bit larger than telephone booths). The most interesting part of the TARDIS, however, is that it is dimensionally much, much larger on the inside.
The Bible is a lot like the TARDIS, because it’s far deeper and richer inside than any other book. It transports you back to times where people faced very hard decisions, and faced the consequences of those decisions. Those lessons we learn when we travel back in time echo into our lives, challenges, and decisions we face today.
The Bible is far, far more than a collection of pages and words. It’s the very truth from our Father that we meditate on, and guidance for us as we travel through present times into the future…a future where we know the ending, if only we believe in Him and His Son.
