27 March -World's Best Seller

Sales exceed twenty million each year; 1.66 million per month and 384,615 per week. It’s been translated into 349 languages and 2,123 languages have at least one section of this book in their language. It’s also listed as the world’s best-selling and most widely distributed book.

What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to be and do good?

In addition to these “big” questions, this book called the Bible holds practical advice on topics such as: What do I look for in a spouse? How can I have a successful marriage? How can I be a good friend? How can I be a better parent?

What is success, and how do I achieve it? How can I change? What really matters in life? How do I live without regrets? How can I handle circumstances and difficult events of life victoriously? How can I be free from anxiety and fear?

Plus it's the only book whose author is always present when one reads it.

It’s called the book of books and is referred to as being “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God’s very words to us.

Considering the number of self-help books, courses, classes, counsellors, and wellness centres being advertised and promoted to help you live a fulfilled, happy, successful and purposeful life, wouldn’t it make sense that you simply pick up a take a bible or take a moment to download it on your phone or computer since this book addresses many of the questions everyone asks about life?

Plus, you’ll discover and learn from Jesus, who is historically known as the greatest leader and teacher the world has ever known.

It’s been said that reading and thinking about what the Bible says can be compared to mining for gold. If we make little effort and merely “sift through the pebbles in a stream, we will only find a little gold dust. But the more we make an effort to really dig into it, the more reward we will gain for our effort.”

Today I encourage you to check out the Bible with fresh eyes. Don’t be surprised to hear God speaking to you; discover answers to your questions and guidance for the future. But be warned; this book is a book which contains truth that, when listened to and applied to your life, will radically change you forever!

“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 29:12-13)
