Why do we have the Bible?
Here's the answer:
God gave us the Bible to tell us about Himself and His plan for us.
The Bible is God's book for us. Every Word came from God, so it's perfectly true. We can read it at church, at home, or even with our friends. The Bible shows us who God is and who He wants us to be. It tells us how to live and please God. The Bible reminds us of God's love for us and His plan for our lives. Reading the Bible changes our mind and our thinking, because God has made it powerful like Himself. We should not just read the Bible but also obey its teaching.
"Don't just listen to the word. You fool yourselves if you do that. You must do what it says" (James 1:22).
"God has breathed life into all of Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right" (2 Timothy 3:16).
"The word of God is living and active. It is sharper than any sword that has two edges. It cuts deep enough to separate soul from spirit. It can separate joints from bones. It judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12).
