God is clear. His life-creating Word is packed into His written Word. God’s Word – the Bible – is a LIGHT unto our feet. God’s Word is the POWER that creates faith in dead hearts. God’s Word KILLS the “Old Adam” and RENEWS and EMPOWERS the “New Adam” to live “no longer for himself but for him who died for him and was raised again.” (2 Corinthians 5:15)
Based on God’s Word, it is self-evident that the use of the Bible is fundamental to the personal spiritual growth of God’s disciples and to the development and missionary activity of God’s disciples.
What role does God’s Word have in your own personal spiritual growth and to your development and missionary activity as one God’s disciples?
God encourages you to read His Word daily. Here is a resource you might want to use for your spiritual growth: The Lutheran Study Bible. You might also want to use the companion, The Lutheran Study Bible Journal. The Journal allows you to read the entire Bible in two years. Each day offers a Scripture reading, journaling space, and life-application notes and prayers. You will see, every day, how God’s Word impacts your life.
