Why is the Bible Important?
The Bible is important because it is God’s Word (1 Thess. 2:13). God’s Word is true (John 17:17), precious (Psalm 19:10), and helpful (2 Tim. 3:16). The Bible is the only book that can give us the truth about God and how we can know Him. Also, the Bible tells us what God’s hates and what God loves. As we read and study the Bible, we are able to know and obey God’s ways.
The Bible is True
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth (John 17:17)
The Bible is Precious
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb (Psalm 19:10)
The Bible is Helpful
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16)
