why do we need to study the word of god
The Bible is an incredible book of history and facts that proves that there is a God that created all things. Most important of all, the Bible is the Word of God. It contains the mind of God and His will for each one of our lives. That is why the Bible was given to us. Paul the Apostle says in, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. Why should we study the Word of God? The following are a few scriptural reasons that we should consider when answering this question. First, the Word of God is infallible. There is no error in God s Word. The law of the Lord is perfect concerning our soul. The testimony of the Lord is not only infallible it is inerrant. , Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. The purity of His words does not need anything added to it. God warns us not to misrepresent His scripture. Second, the Word of God is complete.
The Bible does not need any new chapters or verses. It is all given to us already. Many cults add their own books or commentaries to the Bible. All you need is God s Word because it is the holy Word of God. It is complete. In, God gives us a warning, For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Third, the Word of God is totally authoritative. The book of says Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. The Word of God is the only source for absolute divine authority. This divine authority is for you and me as servants of Jesus Christ. When some say, I have a word from the Lord for you, write it down and as you study God s word see if the Lord speaks to you through His Scriptures. Only then will you know if the Lord is truly speaking to you. Fourth, God s Word is totally sufficient for all of our needs.
We don t need anything else. In
it reads All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. We Christians can be totally secure in the Lord by studying the Bible because it is God s plan for our life. And fifth, the Word of God will accomplish what it promises. If God told you something will happen, and you wait, it will happen. In it says, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. God sent His word to accomplish His perfect will in our lives. If God makes a promise to you He will fulfill it in His own time. There are so many promises given to us in the Bible. These promises reassure us and bring comfort to our lives in our times of trial. I challenge you to take time to study the Word of God. The Lord will show you wonderful things that will change your life. Raul Ries is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Golden Springs and President of Somebody Loves You Ministries.

When we first become believers in salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, studying the word of God is essential in order for us to grow, to be set free from sin, and to consolidate our faith. The malefactor on the cross (Luke 23:39-43) died within a few hours of becoming a believer in Jesus, and had no time to study the word of God or do anything more than confess his belief, and endure to the end. Although this was God's will for him, it won't be for most of us, so when God, by his grace, gives us more time than this, he will undoubtedly expect us to use it to find out his will for our lives, and to do it. Our sincerity will be proven by our willingness to study God's word and conform our lives to be obedient to it.
Six hundred thousand Israelite men came out of Egypt with the promise of the promised land (Exodus 12:37), and all except two failed to receive it because of disobedience (Numbers 14:26-30). In the same way, those of us who are saved out of the world and given the promise of the kingdom of God, will fail to receive it if we are disobedient. All of us who can see, read and hear, will be expected to use our abilities to enable us to grow spiritually by studying the word of God, so that God can fulfil his purpose in our lives. Our fate if we do not is revealed in the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30, Luke 19:11-27), so we need to consider carefully these reasons for studying the word of God. This bible study gives us numerous scriptural reasons why we should study God's word. If you have benefited from reading this study, then please tell your friends about this website.
