This week in our Bible Study Oak and Lee has come up with six reasons why we all need to study the Bible. Our list is going to help guide you to a better understanding of the Bible and scriptures. At the end of this blog post, we are going to encourage you to a spiritual exercise. Okay, let’s get started!
1. The Bible is the infallible word of God. Each word was written with human hands through the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is flawlessly written.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
2. The Bible stands alone. The Bible is God’s truth, written to each believer to know God and live according to His will.
3. The Bible’s intention is for people to know God.
4. The Bible tells the story of God from Creation to End Times. It is only through the word of God believers gain a greater understanding of Him.
5. The Bible is the key component in building a loving relationship between God and a believer.
6. While the Bible does not answer every question, Scripture is a believer’s guiding light through life
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
May your day be filled with grace and blessings,
Questions to Reflect on:
1. How do I view the Bible?
2. How often do I read the Bible?
3. Do I rely on the Bible for guidance and instruction?
I encourage you this week to reflect on how often you use the Bible to guide your daily life? Is it daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly? There is no wrong answer!
For every Bible Study, I like to select a verse and write it out on an index card or post-it. I put the verse at my desk or night table. I memorize and meditate on the verse until it is written on my heart. Psalm 119:105 has reminded me that the Bible is not a textbook or guidebook, but the Bible is a steady companion in drawing closer to God.
Share your verse cards on social media #oakandlee
Write a list of all the things the Bible has taught you so far (make sure to date it). At the end of each month, take a moment to reflect on the list and add new things you have learned! Your list can be in the notes section of your phone, prayer journal, or a piece of notebook paper.
