I attended a women’s Bible study a while ago and I remember a woman in my group stating she finds it amazing that people know how to reference the Bible. I had been in her group for a while and from my understanding she had been attending church for thirty years. When she made that comment I was a bit surprised since I assumed she was a woman of faith since she had been in the church thirty years.
Since that Bible study I have met many women like her who attend church yet have no relationship with Christ.
The Bible is our key to victory in this life. We cannot build a relationship with Jesus and have victory each day without knowing the Word. The Word of God is your most powerful weapon in life.
God wrote the Bible for you. If you have trouble understanding the Bible, like I do sometimes, pray for God’s wisdom. He wants you to know His Word inside and out so your life can have the meaning you and He desire. When Jesus says “man shall not live on bread alone”, He is implying that we cannot sustain by relying on things of this world, but instead our reliance is the Word of God.
Matthew 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[a]”
