Why do we hear and read the Bible?


The Holy Scriptures … are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15

Why do we hear and read the Bible? Because the Holy Scriptures reveal to us our utter sinfulness and point us to God’s Son, Jesus Christ, and His holy life in our stead and His atoning sacrifice on the cross for the sins of the world. They make known to us the way of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

Grant, O LORD, that I hear, read and meditate in Your Word that I might trust in Jesus and His cross for my salvation. In His name, I pray. Amen.
