Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:16-17
We do not study the Bible just to get to know the Bible, we study the Bible that we might get to know God better - As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives.
The Word reveals God's mind, so we should learn it; God's heart, so we should love it; God's will, so we should live it. Our whole being—mind, will, and heart— should be controlled by the Word of God.
Luke 4:4 ―But Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'
