Why you should read your Bible

[COLOR=#ff0000]‘Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word.’ 2 Timothy 3:16 CEV[/COLOR]

Paul wrote to Timothy: ‘People who pretend to be what they are not will become worse than ever, as they fool others and are fooled themselves. Keep on being faithful to what you were taught and to what you believed. After all, you know who taught you these things. Since childhood, you have known the Holy Scriptures that are able to make you wise enough to have faith in Christ Jesus and be saved. Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live.’ (2 Timothy 3:13–16 CEV)

Here’s why you should read your Bible:

(1) So you won’t be led astray. God will never say something to you through another person, or your own thoughts, that does not line up with what He’s clearly revealed in His Word. That’s why you need to know the Scriptures.

(2) To know you’re truly saved. The apostle John writes: ‘These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.’ (1 John 5:13 NKJV)

(3) To identify your calling and equip you. Paul says, ‘The Scriptures train God’s servants to do all kinds of good deeds.’ (2 Timothy 3:17 CEV) The Bible is your guidebook for living the Christian life, so read it every day!

  • In the Bible, God says a portion of our faith comes from him.
  • In the Bible, it says our faith grows by hearing the word of God.
  • I believe both, guess I will keep reading the Bible!

John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Tim 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
