Why Live by the Bible?
You can do one of 3 things:
The Bible relates to us God's way.
"... when ye received the word of
God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but
as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also
in you that believe."
2. It is His method of giving faith.
"So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God."
3. It is His method for saving, passing on an inheritance.
"And now, brethren, I commend you
to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up,
and to give you an inheritance"
4. It is His method of revealing to us our true intentions.
"For the word of God is quick, and
powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the
dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
"Trust in the LORD with all thine
heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy
ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
