Tuesdays Talk: If you don’t know Jesus, can you know the Bible?

By: Pastor Art Hererra
“But the Natural Man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because They are Spiritually Discerned.”
1 Corinthians 2:14
My grandfather once told me a story of how he had presented the gospel to a very intelligent man, a college professor. The simple gospel is that we gain eternal life by Believing and trusting in Jesus alone. After much discussion the professor told my grandfather that he would not believe the Bible until he understood it. My grandfather then told the professor, “Then you will die and spend eternity in hell, because you will never understand it until you believe it.” That unfortunate truth is exactly what this verse is telling us.
Much of the Bible does not make any sense to us until we believe in Jesus. We do, however, know enough so that we can either accept Jesus in childlike faith, or reject Him, and that will determine our eternal fate. But once we believe in Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to live within us, as the verses above tell us, and the things that are in the Bible begin to make more and more sense to us.
Have you invited Jesus Christ into your heart if not what’s stopping you. You can pray this simple yet sincere prayer inviting Jesus Christ into your heart. Jesus the door of my heart is open and I invite you to come in and wash me clean from all of my sins, right now I accept you as my Lord and Savior, in Jesus mighty name.
If you prayed that prayer I welcome you to to the family of God.
If you need help message me and Together We Will Beat Up The Devil.
To God Be The Glory.
