If you were to decide one day to go sky diving, you have decided to put your trust not only in the person you are attached to but also the big piece of material that they are attached to.

You have decided to put your entire life in the hands of a stranger and their big bedsheet.

You would trust and jump, and they would pull the cord to let out that bed sheet and you would look at the world from a whole new perspective.

It doesn’t matter how much faith you have; it matters how strong the object of your faith is.

It doesn’t matter if you have a little confidence in your parachute, what matters is how strong the parachute is. If you have strong faith in a weak parachute, you’re going to have a bad time.

A lot of us feel like that with the Bible. Diving into it in its entirety with all the gory and confusing bits can feel like you are jumping out of a plane. For a lot of us, it’s like jumping out of a plane without a parachute.

We in Bible Society NI believe that the Bible is worth putting our trust in. It is something that we can have confidence in even when there are parts we don’t understand or parts we find difficult.

We believe this due to the evidence surrounding the Bible but also because of its impact on our lives personally.  I have been changed by what it says. I have seen the evidence of its truth in my life, and I believe it is worth skydiving with.

Put your trust in this book today. Pick it up and read it. Maybe in the Gospels as you find out who Jesus is. Let it change the way you see the world and the way you live. Maybe you just might get the opportunity to see the world from above and your life will never be the same again.

We will be hosting an event in the T3 Centre in the House of Vic-Ryn on Wednesday 17th January at 7:30pm in partnership with Precept Ireland on the topic of Bible confidence, why trust the Bible and how to engage with it. Click the button below to sign up and pass it on to those who might be interested, particularly those who might be struggling with Bible confidence.

If you would like us to come and talk to your Church a little more about Bible confidence, please get in touch here at info@biblesocietyni.co.uk
