A thought to consider for today.

A belief is something we hold on to. A conviction holds on to us. We first believe by faith. Conviction comes as we stand on God's promises joining our faith and deeds.

*A belief is having a certainty of the truth especially when based on the examination of the evidence.

*Faith almost always implies believing with certainty in something without actual proof prior to the outcome of the action taken.

*A conviction is being convinced of a truth you have believed with or without proof and due to a personal experience you have had now know without a doubt that this is no longer a concept or an idea that is believed to be true.

When we look at the Holy Bible we have a mixture of belief and faith. In our minds and hearts we have made a choice to either accept that the entire Holy Bible is true or not. As we walk in the wisdom God gives us in His Word our experience teaches us that we can trust the author over our understanding.

An interesting perspective for the Holy Bible is this. The root word for Holy is to be different or to be set apart. The word bible is Latin for book. Therefore, the Holy Bible is actually called The Different Book.
 
What makes the Holy Bible a different Book? It is that this is the only book that has "Thus saith the LORD" or "God Says..." which makes it truly different. In other books people talk about God, present God, declare understanding of God and His truths.

The Holy Bible is the story of God revealing Himself as He reaches out to man and man's response to Him. Regardless of what we believe, this makes the Holy Bible truly unique.
