God reveals Himself to us through creation, His Son, and His Word. In the Bible, God displays His character, His will, and His ways. He uses the Bible in our lives to build Christ’s character in us and equip us to do His work.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16. NIV
It’s so vital for believers to regularly and intentionally read and study the Bible! That’s why it’s so exciting there are so many Bible study resources accessible online. We have a vast library at our fingertips! We can dig into the context of a passage or the historical significance of an event or get more information on the original language and more!
