"The Red And Black Letters"

"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple." Psalm 119:130

There was a song that was written several years ago that talked about the red letters.  It was referring to the words of Jesus in the Bible.  You used to could buy Bibles that had the words that Jesus spoke written in red.  Not too many are written like that any more, but you can still find a few.

The song said that there was hope, peace, forgiveness, etc., in the red letters.  I just wanted to remind you that you can still find whatever it is you need in the "red letters"-- the words of Jesus.  You can also find it in the "black letters".  From Genesis to Revelation the Bible has your answer to every question and your solution to every problem.

It is not an outdated book.  It is relevant for today.  It talks about every subject known to mankind.  If you need wisdom, if you need guidance, if you need to know how to respond to certain individuals, if you need to know the truth on a particular issue, then read the Bible.  There is not one subject that it does not cover.  It covers relationships, politics, health, eternity, attitude, romance, betrayal, morality, world affairs, you name it, it is all in there. 

When we don't know the definition of a word, we turn to the dictionary.  When we don't know how to operate a certain piece of equipment, we turn to the owners manual.  When we want to know how much money we have in the bank, we look at our bank statement.  When we have a problem and need an answer, why wouldn't we turn to the only true source of help just like we do for all these others-- the Bible.

Have a great day.  Your answer to all your problems is found in the red and black letters of the Bible.
