The Pharisees wanted to stone Jesus because He claimed equality with God and they rejected His claim. We do the same thing; we either accept or reject Christ. There is no middle ground.
In his second letter to Timothy, Paul wrote that “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Christians from the apostles until now have, like Paul, regarded Scripture as central to the life and growth of the Church.
But even though we know its importance to our lives, too often our knowledge and application of Scripture remain minimal. Why? Perhaps sitting down to study the Bible might seem intimidating, or it could just be difficult to carve out some devotional time. Maybe you have questions about the Bible, but you aren’t sure where to look for answers.
Let these tools, articles, audio sermons, and resources help you incorporate the Scriptures more fully into your life.
An old German version of the Bible calls Psalm 119 “the Christian’s Golden ABC of the praise, love, power, and use of the Word of God.” If we can absorb the lessons from this chapter, we’re off to a good start.
Knowledge of God’s Word is helpful because it gives our faith substance, stabilizes us when we’re tested, enables us to handle Scripture accurately, equips us to detect error, gives us confidence, and erases our fears.
Each of the 176 verses in Psalm 119 says something about the Word of God. If you’re wondering what God’s Word is about, this is a great place to start.
Ignorance is not bliss. When you’re unsure about what you believe, you become a target for false teachers. Biblical knowledge will help you take a stand for the truth in a lost and disoriented world.
If you have a smartphone or tablet you have the Bible right at your fingertips. And if you take the time to read it, the Bible will make all the difference in your life.

Jesus poured His life into 12 men, teaching, coaching, warning, and mentoring. And when He ascended into heaven, these disciples were not abandoned! The Spirit of God took over and became the fuel they desperately needed.
