IMPORTANCE OF READING THE BIBLE - PART 3
7. It Teaches You How to Pray
day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When He finished, one of His
disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his
disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say:
hallowed be Your name,
Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’” (Luke 11:1-4, NIV)
gospels are packed with recollections of Jesus praying. He prayed in basically
any situation at any time of the day about anything He wanted to talk with God
about. His followers, who were called His disciples, saw Him praying all the
time. You should also learn to pray like this. The Lord’s Prayer, quoted above,
is a great template to follow when learning to pray. Try praying this prayer
yourself and bringing your requests to God.
8. Reading the Bible is how we learn about
study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal
life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to
come to me to have life” John 5:39-40.
9. Reading the Bible helps us to be
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day
and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields
its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither whatever they do prospers” (Psalm 1:2-3).
10. Scripture imparts grace and peace
grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our
Peter 1:2). Knowledge of God gained through Scripture is not identical with
grace, but Peter says it is a means of grace. If we want to be made peaceful
and powerful through divine grace, Peter says, it happens “in the knowledge of
God and of Jesus our Lord.” That knowledge is found in one place: Scripture.
