Someone said, "Read your Bible to know what people ought to do. Read the newspaper to know what they actually do." The question has also been asked, "If you couldn't get another Bible what would yours be worth?" Indeed, we should examine the value we place upon the scriptures and count it not just a duty but a privilege to study it's content.
Everyday we hear instruction, advise and opinions. More than ever before we have information at our finger tips. Yet in the homes of most, the greatest access to wisdom, and understanding goes unread. Let us not just say we believe in the Bible, but let's read it. Let us read our Bibles: (1) Because it is the word of God (II Timothy 3:16-17), (2) Because it is God's will that we read His word (II Timothy 2:15), (3) Because His word is authoritative (Matthew 28:18; I Peter 4:11), (4) Because His word is powerful (Hebrews 4:12), (5) Because His word will edify you (Acts 20:32), (6) Because His word can keep you from sin (Psalms 119:9; Matthew 4:1-11), (7) Because His word will be your standard of judgment (John 12:48; Acts 17:30-31).
The Bible answers the questions about who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. After King Solomon examined different avenues of fulfillment for life, he came to the conclusion that "the whole duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments" (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
