Here are the 10 benefits you will gain from reading your Bible.
Ne live in a world full of resources of all kinds. And this is also true of faith. Whether it's online sermons or testimonial books, everything is at your fingertips, or just a click away. But this facility is also a danger: are we sure we can trust all these sources? Let's learn to keep one source first: the Bible.
The Bible is our foundation
Instead of reading what one or the other thinks or says about the Bible, let's read the Bible. The Word of God is the truth on which we can base our existence.
For no one can lay a foundation other than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3: 11)
The Bible keeps our hearts
On a daily basis, our heart guides us in our decisions, our actions. But we can only trust him if he is in accordance with God's plan. It is the reading of the Word of God that will keep our heart.
For the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the point of dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the feelings and thoughts of the heart. (Hebrews 4: 12)
The Bible produces divine results in us
It is a promise of God: his Word does not return to him without effect. Spending time reading your Bible is letting a journey take place in yourself, a transformation, so that our words, our thoughts, our actions are in accordance with the will of God.
As rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not without watering and fertilizing the earth, and causing plants to germinate, without giving seed to the sower, and bread to him that eats, so it is. he of my word, which goes out of my mouth: It does not return to me without effect, Without having carried out my will and accomplished my purposes. (Isaiah 55: 10-11)
The Bible puts us on the right path
Sometimes we think we are living a righteous life, but the only way to know where our life is taking us is to know the Word of God. It is she who will guide us in the right direction.
Your word is a lamp at my feet, and a light on my path. (Psalms 119: 105)
The Bible renews our hope
In times of distress, reading the Bible provides precious relief and renews our strength during combat.
Now, everything that has been written in advance has been written for our instruction, so that, by patience, and by the consolation of the Scriptures, we may have hope. (15 Romans: 4)
The Bible nourishes our soul
While it is important to eat healthy, we must not neglect to nourish our soul!
Man will not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4: 4)
The Bible reveals mysteries to us
The Bible mentions mysteries and things hidden for generations and assures us that it reveals them to those who read it.
The hidden things belong to the Lord our God; the things revealed are ours and our children forever, so that we may do all the words of this law. (29 Deuteronomy: 29)
The Bible cleanses us
It is the Word of God that works in our hearts for purification.
Let us approach with a sincere heart, in the fullness of faith, with hearts purified from a bad conscience, and our body washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10: 22)
The Bible sets us free
It is the Word of God that sets us free. Once released, we can submit to God.
If you remain in my word, you are truly my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8: 31-32)
The bible stays true
Culture is changing, what was true yesterday may not be true today; what is true here is not necessarily true elsewhere. But the Word of God is immutable and true to every person on Earth.
since you have been regenerated, not by a corruptible seed, but by an incorruptible seed, by the living and permanent word of God. (1 Stone 1: 23)
