Why Does Scripture MATTER So Much?

 

Why must we read SCRIPTURE?

Why does it matter so much?

What can we get from it?

Who wrote Scripture?

What happens if we don't read Scripture?

Of course, the BIBLE has ALL the answers.


1. Scripture testifies of JESUS.

39 Search the scriptures; 

for in them ye think ye have eternal life: 

and they are they which testify of me.

John 5:39 

King James Version 



2. So we may believe JESUS is the SON of GOD.

30 And many other signs truly did Jesus 

in the presence of his disciples, 

which are not written in this book:

31 But these are written, 

that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, 

the Son of God; 

and that believing ye might have life 

through his name.

John 20:30-31 

King James Version



3. To warn the servants of Christ.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: 

and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psalm 19:11 

King James Version


 

4. To reveal the POWER of the WORD of GOD.

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder 

of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts

and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 

King James Version



5. To reveal the enemy of God.

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.

2 Corinthians 4:4 

King James Version



6. So we may learn and have hope.

4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime 

were written for our learning, 

that we through patience 

and comfort of the scriptures 

might have hope.

Romans 15:4 

King James Version



7. To warn us not to pervert the GOSPEL of CHRIST.

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed 
from him that called you 
into the grace of Christ 
unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; 

but there be some that trouble you, 

and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, 

or an angel from heaven, 

preach any other gospel unto you 

than that which we have preached unto you, 

let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, 

so say I now again, 

if any man preach any other gospel unto you 

than that ye have received, 

let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:6-9 

King James Version



8. As a gift to us and our children.

29 The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: 

but those things which are revealed 

belong unto us and to our children for ever, 

that we may do all the words of this law.

Deuteronomy 29:29 

King James Version



9. That the PURE Gospel of Christ may ENLIGHTEN us all.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, 

rejoicing the heart: 

the commandment of the Lord is pure, 

enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, 

enduring for ever: 

the judgments of the Lord are true 

and righteous altogether.

Psalm 19:8-9 

King James Version



10. Because JESUS is the BREAD of LIFE.

4 But he answered and said, 

It is written, 

Man shall not live by bread alone, 

but by every word that proceedeth 

out of the mouth of God.

Matthew 4:4 

King James Version



11. So we may be SANCTIFIED by the TRUTH of GOD.

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: 

thy word is truth.

John 17:17 

King James Version


12. In order to stand against the wiles of the devil.

10 Finally, 

my brethren, 

be strong in the Lord, 

and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand 

against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness 

of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness 

in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you 

the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to withstand 

in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth, 

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

Ephesians 6:10-17 

King James Version
