Why read the words of Scripture?
Why are they so important?
Will it matter if I don’t?
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Tim 3:16-17
“The Bible is Christ in print.” Jim Elliot
God was and God is. God spoke and God created.
God made a way for us to be redeemed. God offers eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ.
For God so loved the world that His gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16-17
The Word of God reveals two difficult realities: sin and death.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Rom 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 6:23
But we are not without hope, because God sent His Son to save us and to give us Life.
Jesus said, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6
But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8
Through Jesus, we can have Life.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom 10:9
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Rom 10:13
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
God gives us His Word so that we might know the way to Life.
Jesus said, “Whoever hears my Word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life.” John 5:24
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me. John 5:39
More important and life-changing than any other words in this life are the Words of Life.
