I would like to concentrate on the Word of God for a few studies to help me and you who read this to realize how important the Word is in our lives and how the power of God works as we spend time in His word. I just feel empowered to do this because of the weakness in our lives and how the Word of God can change us from listless Christians to powerful Christians. Stay with me, I believe this will be very rewarding.
To authenticate the Divinity of Christ.
John 20:31 "But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through His name."
To give us Hope.
Romans 15:4 "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope."
To relate human experience as a warning.
1 Corinthians 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
To give knowledge of eternal life.
1 John 5:13 "These things I have written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that you may know that you have eternal life, and you may believe on the name of the Son of God."
These are some of the reasons that we have been given the Scriptures and very good reasons too. I'm sure there are many more for our study but this is a good beginning to get us started. Please feel free to add as many as you can find. A good base for a study of the Word. May God bless you with knowledge, hope and eternal life through your study. Grandma Joan
