Why Study the Bible?A good study of God's Word is the most profitable study in a person's life. The more you study, the more you want to study. There are many good reasons for studying the Bible, God's Word, but here are just a few:
1 . A study of the Bible will make a person wise about salvation. "And from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures." (2 Timothy 3:15). "which are able to make thee wise unto salvation."
2. Spiritual life depends on the Bible. Matthew 4:4 says we live spiritually by the word of God. We don't have anyone else to go to for life when we turn from God. (John 6:66-68). The soul that does not know the Bible is lost and headed for punishment.
3. A study of the Bible will reveal God's will for man. Christ became the author of salvation to everyone who believes and obeys Him (Hebrews 5:8-9). It is by studying the Bible that we can learn what His will is for us. (Ephesians 3:3,4).
4. We need to study the Bible so that we will know how to pray. Jesus taught his disciples how to pray. If our prayers are not according to the will of God, then, our prayers are not right. John says, "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us"(l John 5:4).
5. We must study the Bible to know what to do to be saved. (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
