I’m Marla Ilona, producer of “Setting the Record Straight: God’s truth for this generation”. Today I’d like to give 10 reasons why you should listen to our Bible study podcast.
1- Jesus Himself studied the scriptures, and He is our example.
“And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself” (Luke 24:27).
2- To better understand and be able to share the foundations of your faith.
“…always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).
3- To strengthen your faith.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17)
4- To walk in the ways of godliness.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
5- To be approved by God as a diligent worker.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
6- To get God’s opinion instead of man’s opinion.
“Thus saith the Lord”.
7- To know what’s coming and is about to hit the world as an overwhelming surprise.
“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts” (2 Peter 1:19)
8- To not be deceived, but discern truth from deception.
“Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24: 4).
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24).
9- To be saved and sanctified.
“Receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls” (James 1:21).
“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth” (John 17:17)
10- The Word of God has power!
“Is not My word like fire that consumes all that cannot endure the test?” says the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks the most stubborn rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29)
