5 Reasons Why We Should Study God's Word
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)
The Bible is INFALLIBLE and INERRANT
The Bible is infallible and inerrant in its totality, incapable of making mistakes or being wrong. The Bible is free from error in all it declares and is unfailing in its purpose. Proverbs 30:5-6, "Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar."
The Bible is COMPLETE
The Bible was given to us in its entirety. No books, chapters or verses need to be added or deleted. God warns us in Revelation 22:18-19, "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll."
The Bible is AUTHORITATIVE and FINAL
All Scripture is authoritative—not just some of it. The entire Bible is the Word of God. The book of Psalms 119:89 says "Lord, your word is everlasting." As believers, we should recognize, respect and regard the Bible as our only source of absolute divine authority! To learn God's ways for us we need to carefully read and reflect on His Words.
The Bible is totally SUFFICIENT for our needs
The Bible contains all the information that is needed for Christian living. It provides us with everything that we need to live a righteous life, in a strong relationship with our Creator, walking down the path of life with him. The Bible clearly states, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16–17
The Bible ACCOMPLISHES what it promises us
What God has said that He will do He does. Isaiah 55:21 promises, "so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." God will fulfill His promise to each of us in His time. His timing is right on time!
