Why it is important to study the Word?
The Word of God is the foundation of faith. To be able to understand the will of God is important to understand what He says through His Word. In order to stand firm in faith it’s important to draw strength from His Word:
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the Law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And whatever he does, he prospers.”
Knowing the Word each one are able to concern the right from wrong by themselves without needing to rely to other’s knowledge.
The Word of God is the foundation of faith.
