    For God is love and his words is our life. Jesus is faithful for those who are diligently seeking him He will pour out his knowledge and will help us to understand his words. I believe the bible was provided for us to believe not to figure out. John1.1 In the beginning there was a word and the word was with God and the word was God. Amen how loving Jesus for giving his blood and life for us.

    Hi Sheila. I very much feel like you, that there is so much to scripture it's difficult to know where to begin! However I think putting aside time for Holy Bible study is most worthwhile and you're doing exactly the right thing. I'd like to recommend you start with any of the four gospel books and perhaps a part of the OT that's fairly easy going, like Ecclesiates for example. May God bless you!
