2. Revelation of our inheritance in ChristThrough studying the bible, a Christian believer discovers what belongs to him as a believer. Paul said in Acts 20:32 that the word of God is able to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. This inheritance Christian Bible Study - Let This Mind Be in You, Which Was Also in Christ Jesus - We Are All Gods! includes healing, prosperity, long life, peace etc and ultimately eternal life. When people are ignorant of what they stand to enjoy as Christians, the devil will always cheat or destroy them, just like God said in Hosea 4:6 that His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.3. Revelation of our authority over the devilBible study reveals our authority over the devil. Though Satan has dominion over the world, he does not have dominion over the Christians. He only oppresses believers who do not know their authority over him and how to exercise it. Jesus said in Luke 10:19 that he has given you power to trend on serpents and scorpions and over ALL the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.4. Spiritual growthWhat eating of food is to the body is what studying the bible is to spirit. Peter encouraged new believers in 1 Peter 2:2 to desire the sincere milk of the word so they can grow. Also in Hebrews 5:12-14, Paul was rebuking the Hebrews that they ought to have graduated to strong meat from milk. Therefore bible study enables a baby Christian to grow spiritually to become a matured Christian believer. The word of God in your heart keeps you away from sin and causes you to live a victorious life in Christ.5. DirectionYou enjoy divine direction and guidance by studying the bible and doing what it says. The psalmist described the word of God in Psalm 119:105 as a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. Bible study enables you to know what step to take in any situation that will lead you to success and not failure, to life and not death, to victory and not defeat. It is what makes the difference between a blind doubting Christian and a seeing believing Christian.6. Wisdom and understandingThe bible is a bank of wisdom. Through bible study wisdom and understanding are imparted unto Christian believers. The psalmist said in Psalm 119:98-99 that God's words made him wiser than his enemies and gave him more understanding than his teachers. All the wisdom and understanding you need are in the bible but it is through studying the bible that they can be delivered to you.
7. BoldnessMany Christians shy away from talking about Jesus because they do not have word of God in them.
