The Inclusion of Bible Teachings in Churches
All churches incorporate the teachings in the Bible to all Christians in one method or another. It is predominant for these churches to teach verses in the Bible with the objective of sending out the messages of God in the most accurate manner, while respecting and recognizing the words of God to His people. The goal of these churches is to be able to teach the words of God in an in-depth manner, but simple and accessible enough to be understood by the Christians listening to the message.
Several people may ask why Bible study is important to Christians when in fact the church is distributing the messages in the Bible during mass or when Christians congregate. There are some reasons by Christian believers would point out as to why it is still needed to do some Bible study. It is important to remember too that the Bible is God’s words to us His people, and by studying it, we get to know more about our God, what and how He thinks, and why He thinks the way He does. And to enjoy all the blessings of God and escape destruction, the Bible teaches us how God operates.
The first reason pointed out why we study the Bible is have some revelation of our position in Christ. The Bible is centered around our Lord Jesus Christ from Genesis to Revelation, with the scriptures pointing our salvation by Jesus. It is revealed to us through studying the Bible that we can exercise triumph only in Christ, and that we are taught how to gain access to this victory.
Our inheritance in Christ and what belongs to us are revealed in the Bible as we study it. Paul said in Acts 20:32 that through the words of God we will be able to inherit healing, prosperity, long life, peace and ultimately eternal life, and these words are sanctified. This lack of knowledge is said to be the means that devil will cheat or destroy us, and so we have to have knowledge in order to enjoy what we as Christians have inherited from God.
The Bible reveal to us our authority over the devil, thus the devil does not have dominion over us Christians.
Reading the Bible would give us spiritual growth, in the same manner as eating food gives nourishment to our body, so does the Bible is to our spirit. Through Bible study, young Christians will grow spiritually and become matured Christian believers, by keeping the word of God in their hearts, keeping them away from sins.
