The Word is inspired by God. It us useful for absolutely everything in our life and should be applied to our life.
The Bible is relevant (living) and active (dynamic). It transcends time and is as applicable today as it was when it was written. The Word penetrates like a sword. It can cut us and “hurt” at times. But that is good because it encourages us to repent.
There is no private interpretation of the Bible. The Holy Spirit inspired the men who wrote the books of the Bible.
Life (what you do) and doctrine (what you believe) are of equal importance.
Be careful of traditions that supersede the Word of God.
Jesus isn’t content with our belief and sincerity. He not only wants us to believe and read the Word but to obey it.
The bad news is that we will all stand in judgment before our God. The good news is that he has already given us all we need to know. It is vital that we read the Word and live our lives according to its standard.
The Bereans were eager to learn. They read the Scriptures enthusiastically and daily. They asked questions. God considers that to be noble. Don’t simply accept what religious leaders say, read and study the Bible for yourself. Are you willing to make the Bible your standard? Challenge them to begin reading the Bible every day.
