    Thoroughly read the Digging Deeper article, “Ways that God communicates to us today,” from Lesson 2. Answer the following questions based on the article in paragraph form: 1. What is your general reaction to how God communicates with humanity today? 2. Why is the consistency of the message in Scripture so important for believers (according to the article)? 3. What importance have the Scriptures come to have in your life? Elaborate in detail.

    1. My reaction to God communicating with humanity through Jesus is that it is fair and efficient method. Although sometimes Jesus’ role and teachings in Scripture can be hard to interpret, it requires us to read and listen to what God is trying to say to us in a more relatable and relevant way especially compared to the Old Testament. 2. The consistency of God’s message in Scripture is important because it shows us the main idea and purpose of God’s teachings. Scripture tells us what we need to do in order to be good Christians and also how to spot a false teacher who wishes to lead us astray. 3. Scripture has become very important in my life because I use it not only to gain wisdom but also to find peace. Whenever I read Scripture I find myself more calm and relaxed than before and I never open my Bible without gaining guidance that changes my way of thinking. Also I find that the days and weeks that I consistently read Scripture turn out to be the better times for me, I am happier and more comfortable with myself and others. Without Scripture I would be lost because I wouldn’t have my anchor to God and my whole perspective would be changed to an earthly point of view instead of the Christian perspective that God provides.

    1. I think that it is wise of God to communicate with us through Jesus and the scripture. In the article, it said that before Jesus guided the apostles and explained the scripture it was “fragmentary and limited”. God explained the scripture to us using Jesus, someone who would not be biased or twist the scripture for his own selfish desires because Jesus wanted to help us. Before, people didn’t have a great understanding of the scripture but now we do and that helps us to grow closer to God. 2. Consistency is important so we know what to believe and do. If we find multiple areas saying different tings, we wouldn’t know how to best follow God’s word and make Him proud. 3. Scriptures are a very important part of my life. They can be inspirational or sympathetic. They help me grow closer to God because I can read His word and know He cares about me. Scripture helps me to settle any doubts I have about why something happened or if God cares. They remind me that He has a plan for all of us and He will reveal it in His time. Until then, I should just follow His word to the best of my ability.

    My reaction is that god communicates with us through prayer and the Bible. I would say prayer because its how we communicate with god and so he communicates back with us through our prayers. And the Bible because its literally gods word read through the Bible and you’ll see that it is what god communicates with. Consistency is important because if someone tells you one thing and then another person tells you different then you’ll be confused. But if it is consistent than the person will be more open and understanding of the scripture that their reading. Many scriptures some to mind when i think of having an impact in my life. 1 John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” This one shows that even though god hates sin, he gave his one and only son burden our sins. Because he loves us so much. And this is why i try to be the best i can possibly be because of what god had to sacrifice for us

    1 God communicates with humans a lot differently today than he used to but I think it was because not everyone had the Bible we couldn’t just open a book and get help so he would come to talk to us instead 2. It’s so important because if the Bible was inconsistent we wouldn’t know what to believe if the Bible was like this it would be more of a book of opinions that a book of wisdom. 3. The scripture has had a great impact on my life and has helped me whenever I needed help if I ever feel discouraged or down all I have to do is open the Bible.

    1. God communicates to us differently then he did to people like Moses. I think its because Moses was important into teaching us about Christianity and that’s why God spoke to him in a burning bush and he speaks to us through other ways. 2. If the Bible wasn’t consistent than there wouldn’t be as many Christians there are today. 3. The scripture has made an impact on my life because without it I wouldn’t be as close to God as I am today.
