Every country in the world have their own set of laws which reflects the principles of their government and culture of its people. These principles were contained in an organized body of national law called constitution. The constitution, therefore, is the written will of the people and the compiled voice of their national sovereignty. But constitution is not only for worldly purpose, but more important for the government that rules our souls. The government of God which rules over the hosts of heaven and all creatures in earth unites them under the holy constitution founded upon the words of God in the Bible. The people of God and those who professed to believe in Christ should cling to the words of God written in the Bible. The Bible itself is not the word of God, but the principles of His government were recorded in this Holy Book.
Also recorded here are the journeys, the afflictions, the conversations, and victories of those ancient people who dedicated their lives for the sake God’s will. Apostle Paul said to the Christians of Rome;
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4)
The history of man’s fall into sin was recorded here. The life of God’s friend, Abraham, and the meekest person of the ancient times – Moses, were all described in the Bible. The most important history of salvation – the life of Christ, was also recorded here. Even the story of rebellion and the plans of the Great Adversary were told in this book as a warning for those who choose not to follow the principles of the Creator. All in all, the Bible is the complete record of doctrines, admonitions and laws that will make man perfect before the eyes of God. Paul stated;
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. ( II Timothy 3:16-17)
The way of peace , cleanliness, sanctity, morality, diligence, charity, and discipline are completely described in the Bible which made it worthy to be called as the “Constitution of eternal life“, like what Christ said;
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (John 5:39)
Believing to what were written in the Bible means not to become extreme or a “picky learner” among its teaching. Perfection will only attain through perfect obedience to the words of God. Our study should be no more, no less. Paul stated;
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. (I Corinthians 4:6)
In these last days, the people of God should lean upon the teachings of the Holy Writ. It is the only safeguard where we can rely against the wiles of Satan. The Holy Scriptures already foretold the plans of the Evil One and it is of great importance that we should become more focus to what were written than blindly follow the inventions of mortal and impotent mind of men.
