The Holy Scriptures

This is the easy part!  Read your Bible.  Lots of people think reading the Bible is hard, but its the easy part.  Read from a modern translation like the New International Version, or the English Standard Version.  The modern language makes the Bible very easy to understand.

Read the Scripture in order to get to know God.  Your faith is a personal relationship with God, and the Scriptures are God’s Word written to you.  Since you are a New Christian, you need to really fall in love with Jesus.  Read the Gospels, John, Matthew Mark and Luke first.  This Word will amaze and challenge you.  It will compel you to follow Jesus and be transformed by his Spirit.

So what is the Bible? It is God’s inspired Word, the Gospel of your Salvation. Without the Bible, we know very little about God, but God has revealed himself to us through the Holy Scriptures.

14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
