What is the Bible?

Chapter 11 – What is the Bible?

  1. WHAT WERE WE BORN-AGAIN OR SAVED BY? (I PETER 1:23)
  2. AS NEW CHRISTIANS, WHY SHOULD WE READ THE WORD? (I PETER 2:2)
  3. IF WE ARE TO LIVE A HOLY LIFE, WHY IS IT IMPORTANT THAT WE READ THE WORD?(HEBREWS 4:12)
  4. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR US TO MEMORIZE GOD’S WORD? (PSALM 119:11)
  5. WHAT TAKES PLACE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO READ THE WORD AND KEEP IT? (I JOHN 2:3-5)
  6. WHAT DID JOHN DECLARE HAD MADE THEM STRONG AND GAVE THEM POWER TO OVERCOME THE WICKED ONE? (I JOHN 2:14)
  7. JAMES TELLS US OF MANY THINGS THAT WE ARE TO TAKE OUT OF OUR LIVES, AND IN THEIR PLACE RECEIVE WITH MEEKNESS THE ENGRAFTED WORD OF GOD. WHY? (JAMES 1:21) JESUS WAS THE WORD MADE FLESH (JOHN 1:1-14). YOU AND I ARE FLESH TO BE MADE THE WORD. AS WE ARE DILIGENT TO READ AND DO THE WORD IT BECOMES LIKE A SKIN GRAFT. IT BECOMES PART OF US AND OUR ACTIONS AND REACTIONS ARE CHANGED TO MATCH THE WORD.
  8. WHAT DOES JAMES COMMAND US TO DO BESIDES READ THE WORD? (JAMES 1:22)
  9. IF WE HEAR THE WORD BUT FAIL TO PRACTICE IT, WHO ARE WE DECEIVING AND HURTING? (JAMES 1:22)
  10. HOW MUCH OF THE WORD SHOULD I TAKE INTO MY HEART? (COLOSSIANS 3:16)
  11. WE SHOULD NOT ONLY READ THE WORD, BUT STUDY IT WITH GREAT CARE. WHY?
    (II TIMOTHY 2:15)
  12. WHY MUST WE READ, STUDY AND MEMORIZE THE WORD? (I PETER 3:15)
  13. THE WORD NOT ONLY TELLS US HOW TO LIVE, BUT ALSO WORKS IN US TO HELP US LIVE IN GOD’S WILL. HOW? (PSALM 119:105)
  14. WHAT IS THE ORIGINAL SOURCE OF ALL SCRIPTURE? (II TIMOTHY 3:16)
  15. WHAT ARE THE SCRIPTURES USEFUL FOR? (II TIMOTHY 3:16-17)
  16. READ II PETER 1:16-21. DO THE SCRIPTURES COME FROM THE PROPHETS’ OWN OPINIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS? WHERE DO THEY COME FROM? (II PETER 1:16-21)

IF WE DON’T KNOW GOD’S WORD AND HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US, THEN HOW CAN WE SHARE HIS WORD WITH OTHERS AND HELP THEM TO BELIEVE?
