IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE KNOWLEDGE

By E.R. Hall, Jr

It is not difficult to convince someone of the importance of knowledge they need pertaining to their job, a hobby they like, or other item of interest to them. We desire to know all we can about our job in order that we might do it better. A hobby or something of a particular interest is more enjoyable the more we learn about it. Should we not have the same desire to know spiritual things that pertain not only to our lives now but eternity, too?


The importance of Bible knowledge can be seen in that it can give us the PROPER CONCEPT OF GOD. We can know that God is the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1). It is in Him that “we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28). While we are His offspring, we must not change Him in to some graven artwork or any other thing that man might devise. While “the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalms 19:1), these things do not tell us about God’s will. That’s the importance of Bible knowledge.

Knowledge of the Bible also gives us the PROPER CONCEPT OF SALVATION. This is certainly important in view of the fact there so many false concepts. Many, today, have forgotten why Jesus came into the world. “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21). Since He is the one who can save us from our sins, we need to listen to what He says. “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” (John 8:24). “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3,5). “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32). “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:16).

May we all realize the importance of Bible knowledge and begin our search for the truth that we might put it into practice in our lives.
