Why Scripture Matters

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, 
correcting and  training in righteousness, 
so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped 
for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:14, 16-17 NIV

With that Scripture quote alone we don't even need to write another word for it supports itself.

But I think I'll write a bit more about how how beautiful it is to live and breathe God in your heart by studying His Word through the Bible.

When you become a true born-again Christian, your life will change magnificently.

When you've been touched by God, you will only want to know EVERYTHING about Him.

It's almost like oxygen for you.

You breathe in from the Bible each day.

You listen to chosen sermons each day.

A lot of those had been carefully selected for use on this blog.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, the one Christ left us with, to teach us:

15 “If you love me, 
keep my commands. 
16 And I will ask the Father, 
and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 
17 the Spirit of truth. 
The world cannot accept him, 
because it neither sees him nor knows him. 
But you know him, 
for he lives with you and will be in you. 
18 I will not leave you as orphans; 
I will come to you."

John 14:15-18 NIV

I've also found that people who are in Christ tend to find each other and God connects us effortlessly.

You will find yourself with a new circle of friends who are so much like you -- loving God above all.

And all because you sought God and wanted to learn more about Him.

13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 
14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, 
“and will bring you back from captivity.

Jeremiah 29:13-14 NIV

You will also find, from reading Scriptures and loving God with all your heart, that you've become humble and teachable.

Also, you will see the world for what it is:

On Not Loving the World

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world
If anyone loves the world, 
love for the Father is not in them
16 For everything in the world—
the lust of the flesh, 
the lust of the eyes, 
and the pride of life—
comes not from the Father but from the world
17 The world and its desires pass away, 
but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

1 John 2:15-17 NIV

The greatest wisdom is that which comes from the Word of God -- JESUS

How else have I come to know all these but through the Bible and through the various teachers I've featured on this blog?

Have a teachable heart.

Open your heart to Jesus, through God's Scriptures.

Your life will be as you never knew it before.
