What is the purpose of the Word?
John 20:31 To guide you to Jesus so that you can have eternal life.
Luke 1:4 To give you a reference point so that you can verify that what you have been taught is true.
Romans 15:4 To give us hope and patience, and to learn how Jesus moves.
Are you using the Word in your life?
Do you believe that Jesus came and gave himself as a sacrifice for your sins? Do you believe that through Him and Him alone you have salvation and eternal life?
Do you know that your belief system is based upon the scriptures and not traditions passed down?
Do you take comfort in how God has worked in the lives of others? Does it strengthen your faith and expand your patience? Do you learn from it?
The Lord has given us His word to build our lives upon…to turn to in all situations….to grow in Him.
