Study to shew thyself approved unto God…rightly dividing the word of truth.
– 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
“All Scripture is God-breathed and He doesn’t waste His breath.”
– Jim McCotter
“Reputable scholars now believe that the New Testament account is reliable history.”
– Times Magazine
“What happiness the Bible procures for those who believe it! What marvels it bestows upon those who reflect upon it!”
“I thoroughly believe in a university education for both men and women, but I believe knowledge of the Bible without a college course, is more valuable than a college course without knowledge of the Bible.”
– William Lyon Phelps (once referred to as the most beloved professor in America)
“A man has deprived himself of the best there is in the world, who has deprived himself of this: knowledge of the Bible.”
– President Woodrow Wilson
“The Bible is a foolproof guide for navigating the different curves of life. There is no better resource for dispelling the clouds of confusion and pointing at an unambiguous direction.”
“It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the fate of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It is a light to direct you, food to nourish you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveller’s road map, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s weapon, and the player’s game plan. It’s a mine of incredible wealth, and a river of genuine joy. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Christ is its grand subject, your good its design, and the glory of God its end. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practice it to be spiritually healthy. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully. Let it fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your steps. It is given to you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour, and judge those who trifle with its sacred contents.”
Commit it to heart that your day will not be complete without having studied the Bible.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
