Benefits of Reading Scripture
- 2 Tim 3:16-17
2 Tim 3:16-17 (ESV), All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
- 1 Cor 10:6, 11
1 Cor 10:6 (ESV), Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did.
1 Cor 10:11 (ESV), Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come.
Paul's Prayer for God's People
- Romans 12:1-2 (ESV)
Rom 12:1-2 (ESV) I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that
by testing you may discern
what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

- Rom 15:4
Rom 15:4 (ESV), For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
“When we bring God's words home to our hearts, and then apply them to our lives through an amazed and changed heart, it is a great means of his grace to us.” (David Mathis)
