14 Nov Why You Must Read the Bible Daily
1. God Breathed
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17. What this means that the words in the Bible is a spirit and carries the ability to correct, train, and transform a person into being a servant of God.
2. False Teachers
The Bible helps us to steer clear of false teachers who teaches demonic doctrines. Not only do the Bible warns us about these false teachers but it gives a description what they will do (1 Timothy 4:1-5, 1 John 4:1-3, 2 Peter 2:1-3, 2 Timothy 4:3, Matthew 7:15-20, 1 Timothy 6:3-5, Matthew 24:5, Matthew 24:11, 2 Corinthians 11:3-15, Revelation 2:20-24, Matthew 24:24). The Bible also tells us that we should stay away from false teachers (Colossians 2:8, Ephesians 5:11, Romans 16:17-18). If you don’t know what contains in the Bible you can be easily led by false teachers.
3. The Only Truth
The Bible is the only book in the world that contains only truth. This is why Jesus Christ, who is the living word, (John 1:1-5) states, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). In this world there is only one truth in every situation but many falsities. There are no multiple truths. You are either living in the truth or lies.
4. Life Manual
The Bible will guide you on how you should live your life (Psalm 119:105). Without the Bible you can not possibly know how to live your life according to God’s standards. Being ignorant will not help your case on judgement day . This is why it is written, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… (Hosea 4:6). Without knowing how you should live your life, you are spiritually walking in darkness (John 12:35, Proverbs 4:19). When you’re blind you can easily fall into a pit, which is Hell (Matthew 7:13-14, John 3:19).
5. Know God Better
Read the Bible will help you get to know the character of God. Since God is the same today and tomorrow (Malachi 3:6), the Bible is a reliable source on the character of God.
6. Helps Resisting Satan
The Bible explains how we can resist and fight against our enemy, Satan. Without reading the Bible you have a higher chance to be used as a tool for the kingdom of darkness (1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6:12).
7. God Doesn’t Go Outside His Word
Since the Bible is the word of God, God can not go outside of it. So whenever you want to hear from God, he will speak to you through the Bible or he will speak audibly and use scripture. This is why Jesus Christ states that the Holy Spirit will bring things that he said in remembrance (John 14:26).
8. Grow Spiritually
You can not be able to grown spiritual without reading the Bible daily. Our spirit man is fed through the word of God, which is the Bible. This is why God states that men will not eat on bread alone but every word that comes out of God’s mouth (Deuteronomy 8:3).
