Profitable Knowledge (Psalm 119:27)

general-knowledge TheHolyBible

The Bible is unlike any other book. It was given by God’s inspiration and is His revelation to man. On its pages we find we need to know to receive salvation and to live for the Lord. Paul declared that it “is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).

Some people, however, devote more time to learning about the Bible than to discovering its message.

Facts may be interesting, and many hours of labor may go into gathering them, but how do they build us up spiritually?

Let’s not get sidetracked by interesting statistics and unusual facts. Instead, let’s prayerfully study the content of the Bible to discover what God is saying to us about Himself and His plan for our lives. That will make our Bible knowledge most profitable. – Richard De Haan

Thy Word is like a deep, deep mine,

And jewel rich and rare

Are hidden in its mighty depths

For every searcher there. – Hodder

The Bible tells us all we need to know so we can do all God wants us to do.
