We Have to Read the Bible

September 20, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: Truths For Tough Times

Scripture: Romans 12:2–12:2

We Have to Read the Bible
Romans 12:2
September 20, 2020


I.    Garbage in = Garbage out. Romans 12:2a.

II.   We must value the Word. Romans 12:2b.

       A.  No book can do so much for those who read it rightly. Romans 12:2b, 
            John 17:17, Colossians 3:16.


       B.  It is the only standard by which all questions of faith and life can be 
            determined. Romans 12:2c, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Acts 17:11.

       C.  The Scriptures are our food and delight. Matthew 4:4, 1 Peter 2:2-3,
            Psalm 1:2, 119:97.

        D.  God's promises provide the most comfort in adversity and death.
             Genesis 48:3-5, Isaiah 40:30-31, 41:10, 43:2.

Questions for reflection:

What is the state of your mental health? Are you consuming too much of what the         world has to offer in terms of entertainment, news, sports, or social media?

• What is the best reading plan or program for you to follow over the coming year?

• When is the best time of day for you to spend time in God’s word?
