God says, “This is my Word”
Why Study The Bible?
The obvious answer is because it is God’s very own Word! What a privilege it is to be able, at any time, to open the Bible and discover what God has to say to us. If you were to receive a letter from someone really famous you would be excited about it. How much more excited we should be to have access to God’s own Word!
The Bible shows how man have sinned and fallen short of God’s standards (Romans 3:23), but it also shows how God has provided you with a way of forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:8). The Gospel is powerful!
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,"
Studying the Bible is profitable. God uses His Word to speak to us personally and guide us through His Word (Psalm 119:105). It is practical and affecting our everyday lives (James 1:22).
Studying the Bible and obeying what it says will prove productive by making us the sort of people God wants us to be. God expects Christians to grow and He has told us the kind of “fruit” He wants to see in our lives.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,"
Young Christian, is your life producing “fruit”? It will only do so if you are willing to spend time studying God’s Word.
What part does God’s Word play in your life? Have you discovered the way of salvation it reveals and placed your faith in Jesus Christ? If so, make sure that day by day you set aside time to study the precious Word of God. Only then can you hope to grow into the type of person God wants you to be.
