God enriched our lives by giving us His heart and mind in the Bible, His inspired Word. We can trust the Bible as the sacred and authoritative path to life and godliness because we can trust the God who inspired it.  The benefits of following His Word will be discussed in the lesson, “God’s Inspired Word.” during next Sunday’s broadcast.  The program can be seen  Sundays on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7, at 7:30 a.m.
