1. The Bible leads us to fruitfulness. Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV) says, “Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly. . . . But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” Reading and meditating on the God’s Word continually will not only bless us, but is enables us to be beneficial and useful to the Lord.
2. The Bible displays the character of God. How are we to ever learn to recognize the sound of God’s voice if we devote no time to studying it in Scripture? Since the Bible is “God-breathed,” or, inspired directly from God, it is a one hundred percent reliable account of the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament, who are both one in the same. The depictions of both God and his Son in the Bible reveal intimate details of their characters. Want to glean a clearer understanding of who God is? Start reading the Bible! In essence, time spent studying the Word, is time spent studying the character of God.
