God’s Word the Bible can have tremendous power in your life. In accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior, you have begun a new life in Jesus Christ. There are some key ways that God’s Word the Bible can help transform your life. First, the Bible can teach you about salvation and about new life in Jesus Christ. You can be sure of your salvation. Second, the Bible can help you grow in your faith. "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God."

"Do good to your servant according to your word, O Lord." Psalm 119:65

"Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me." Psalm 119:98

The Bible Teaches How to Live

Third, the Bible can give you spiritual power over evil. Even Jesus Christ, when He was tempted, quoted the Bible and displayed power and victory. The Bible is “The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.” Fourth, the Bible can teach you how to live. “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Fifth, the Bible can show you in your own life, what is good and what is not good. Often we are blind to our own faults; just like in the dark you cannot tell the difference between a bright shirt and a dark shirt. The Bible “judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” And sixth, you can use the Bible to help others. God wants us to be victorious over sin and evil. “God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind.” God has given you tremendous spiritual power through faith in His Holy Word.

"Long ago I learned from your statutes that You established them to last forever." Psalm 119:152
