How many books have you read in your lifetime?
How many books have you read in your lifetime? Would those books fill an entire wall or room of your house? Now imagine every book that you have ever seen in a library, bookstore, or business. On top of that, think about every book from every part of the world. The number is countless.
The last sentence in the Book of John states that Jesus did so many things during His lifetime that “the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.” Through the writings of John, we learn that Jesus led an active, fruitful, obedient, and purposeful life during His short amount of time on earth. We do not have to worry that we are missing volumes of Christ’s life and ministry. We can trust that God inspired His writers through His Holy spirit to record the things that we would need to guide our lives and fulfill our mission here on earth.
According to 2 Timothy 3:16-17, through His word, God has fully equipped us for every good work.
