Jesus provides us with a potent reminder that The Word of God is for our benefit. He tells us in a very direct way that hearing and obeying The Word results in our being blessed. To be blessed is to be made holy. And to be holy is to be set apart to live in friendship with Him.
Paul echoes this idea of The Word being a benefit to us when he wrote in 2 Timothy 16 and 17. Paul reminds Timothy and us that scripture is profitable and equips us for the good work that is ours to do according to God’s plan.
Be encouraged that The Word is near to us in the person of Jesus and that in The Bible we have the ultimate blueprint for living.
