Passion and PurposePosted by: bbcadmin
Welcome to the website of Benson Baptist Church. As pastor, I plan to use this space each week to focus on the truth and power of the Word of God. Only the Bible has the power to save a soul and change a life. The psalmist says, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple” (Psalms 19:7).
How could a book that was written centuries ago be significant for us today? It is possible because the author is God himself: “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 complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
I am convinced that Scripture has the answers we are looking for in life. There are three questions that have puzzled every generation over the centuries. Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? Scripture tells us that God is our Creator and that he made us for his glory. The Bible also tells us how we can have eternal life through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who have turned from sin and trusted Christ as their sin-bearer will spend eternity with him.
In addition, God’s Word tells us how to live in a way that pleases our heavenly Father. It instructs us, it corrects us, it comforts us and it gives us hope. We can turn to God’s inspired revelation to find answers to life’s problems.
Please check back weekly to revive your spirit and renew your focus on the things of God.
