Daily Bible Verse 7th February 2022 || Romans 15:4 || The Best Reason to Read the Bible

Today’s Bible Verse: “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.” – Romans 15:4
The Real Goal of Bible Study
A lot of people think that the reason they are to study the Bible is so that they can know the Bible well. But when we study the Bible, we should always be coming to an increased knowledge of God that leads to an increased love of God.
There’s really never been a truer statement than, “To know him is to love him.” When we see his character revealed in the Scriptures, we cannot help but increase in our affection for him and feel awe and reverence toward him. Both of those things reorient us toward our circumstances in a way that we wouldn’t otherwise be oriented.
That’s one of the reasons that anytime I talk to people about studying the Bible, I ask them to look first for what the text says about God. Because that is the understanding that should shape the rest of our understanding of what the text is saying to us.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
