Why Study the Bible?

It is God’s Word. We have it because “men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21).
It is truth that reveals the mind of God. Jesus said, “Thy word is truth” (John 17:17).
It is the source of faith in Jesus Christ. John gave his purpose for writing his gospel as, “…these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God” (John 20:31).
It is the standard of right and wrong. It is by the practice of the Word that we have our “…senses trained to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14).
It is nourishment to bring spiritual growth. Peter admonished, “Long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation” (1 Peter 2:2).
It is a sufficient guide for daily living. It provides everything a man needs to make him “adequately equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16).
It gives us hope. No matter how desperate our situation or how dark the future appears, through perseverance and encouragement of the Scriptures we “… have hope” (Romans 15:4).

  1. Thank you brother Jividen.
    God’s word through O.T.
    prophecies points to
    Christ in the future.
    God’s word through the
    4 gospel accounts and the book of Acts points
    to Jesus’ life on earth
    and the beginning of His
    church.
    God’s word through the
    epistles points to how
    mankind can remain stedfast within Christ
    and His body(the church).
    If we do not heed His
    doctrine(teaching) all
    we once had will be lost.
    Thank you brother Jimmy.
    In Christ,
    Al
