On the Importance of God's Word

  The Bible is the revealed Word of God to us. It's our guidebook for a happy, fulfilling life here on earth and how to hold onto God's gift of eternal life in Heaven after we leave here.
  The following are some passages from Scripture and other sources on the importance of reading and studying Scripture.
“All Christians must refer always and everywhere to Scripture for all their choices, becoming like children before it.  They should seek in it the most effective remedy against all their weaknesses and not dare take a step without being illumined by the divine rays of those words.”  Pope John Paul II

"A memory stored with Scripture is a bank that will never fail."

Your word I have hid in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11

I meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways. I delight in Your decrees; I will not neglect Your Word. Psalm 119:15-16

"In the Bible, God not only reveals Himself but also the path to happiness."
 St. Pope John Paul II

All Scripture is inspired of God and is useful for teaching--for reproof, correction, and training in holiness so that the man of God may be fully competent and equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16

Indeed, God's Word is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword. It penetrates and divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the reflections and thoughts of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
