“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you” -Psalm 119:11.
Studying and knowing God’s word is what leads us to live according to His will and perfect plan. In John 17:17, Jesus tells us one important reason that God gave His word. To change His people. The Word of God has the power to change, has the potential to protect against sin, and has the ability to help receive the abundant blessings of God. It is important for believers to read and understand the Bible, and to find every avenue available to pour God’s word into their souls — to memorize it, meditate on it, and hide it in their heart. The Bible is God’s gift to His people, and through it, Christians can understand the abundance of life in Christ everlasting.
