As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord’s Word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him.” (Micah 6:8)
After a year during which much of what Americans placed their trust in for security proved less than certain, Christians have learned to rely even more on God, who has and will not ever fail us. Moreover, our faith is founded not in legends passed along orally through the centuries, but in God’s written Word which retains every bit of God’s authority, truth, and trustworthiness.
Southern Baptists have joined other evangelicals in affirming the inerrancy of Scripture, which means we believe that every part of the Bible is fully true and trustworthy. David used a similar word to express this doctrine, when he wrote: “The Lord’s Word is flawless…” The Bible may not answer every question you might think of, but it contains everything we need to know. For this reason, we can and should “take refuge in Him” because as “for God, His way is perfect.” Following Jesus is not only a wise decision, He is the way to peace, happiness, and life in abundance.
