Daily Bible Study

A recent study by the American Bible Society (2022) found that only 39% of American adults are bible users, with the term bible user referring to “those who use the Bible at least 3-4 times each year on their own, outside of a church setting.” This may lead you to wonder if reading your Bible every day is really that important. But God tells us that studying our Bibles is profitable for us!

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

— 2 Timothy 3:16-17

But God tells us that studying our Bibles is profitable for us! 

There is a reason why God’s people literally wore scriptures on their wrists and foreheads and were commanded to teach God’s Word to their children diligently (Deuteronomy 6:6-8). In short, we are a forgetful people. When we are in the valleys of life, we are quick to forget God’s goodness, faithfulness, and provision, and when we experience life’s mountain tops, we forget to thank God and praise Him for all He has done for us. We often become complacent about our faith and apathetic about sharing the Good News. In our ever changing world and culture, we forget to turn to the only unchanging standard by which we should live our lives. God’s Word is the answer for all of this. Here are ten reasons why we should study our bibles daily:

  1. Learn about God’s character (Hebrews 1:1-3)
  2. Overcome temptation and sin (1 John 2:14, Psalm 119:11)
  3. Understand doctrine (Ephesians 4:13-14, 1 John 4:1)
  4. Discern what is right (Romans 12:1-2, Psalm 119:105)
  5. Evangelism (Psalm 1:2-3, Romans 10:17)
  6. Fellowship (Colossians 3:16)
  7. Salvation (John 3:16, 14:6)
  8. Encouragement (Romans 15:4-5, Joshua 1:9)
  9. Prevent apathy/complacency (Romans 12:11)
  10. Grow in knowledge (1 Peter 2:2-3, 2 Peter 3:18)
