    • Sometimes, we struggle with reading and obeying God's word
    • We must see God's word as something valuable
    • God's word confirms us in our faith “Continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of....” (2 Timothy 3:14)
    • God's word guides us forward “You have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 3:15)
    • God's word is trustworthy “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness....” (2 Timothy 3:16)
    • We must humbly seek God through his word
    • We gain wisdom and love for God through his word “Oh, how I love your law! ... [It makes] me wiser than my enemies. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.” (Psalm 119:97-99)
    • We draw closer to God through his word “I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.” (Psalm 119:102)
    • We learn the right way to live through his word “I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.” (Psalm 119:104)
    • We must be moved to action through God's word
    • If we read God's word properly, we will obey it “I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word.” (Psalm 119:100-101)
    • God's word equips us for every good work “All Scripture is...useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that all God's people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:17)
