The importance of knowing Scripture

Knowing Scripture

So often we will meet lies. They are everywhere. Lies on social media about what a good life is supposed to look like, lies in advertisements about how we need to look a certain way or have a significant other in order to feel and be loved, lies from the enemy of God about who we are and the truth God speaks through the Bible. That is why it is so important to know the truth – to know Scripture. Not only to read it, but to fully know it and have it stored in our hearts and ultimately living it out. We cannot combat lies with a truth we don’t know. As this quote from Christine Caine says so well:

“The truth will set you free, but only the truth that you know.”
Let’s be people who know the truth. The truth that comes from God and God’s word (=the Bible).

The thing we must not forget-why prayer is a vital part of being a Christian

“I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time-waking and sleeping. It does not change God – it changes me.” C.S. Lewis

Prayer is a really essential part of being a Christian and having fellowship with God. But why? Below are 5 reasons why prayer is so important.

  1. Jesus was constantly praying and so should we. So why did Jesus need to pray?
  • He loved being with His father and enjoyed His company
  • He knew He could do nothing by himself and He really believed it
  • It was His source of power – there would be no miracles without constant communion with His father
  • He knew spiritual authority came through prayer

Throughout the gospels we see Jesus praying:

  • He got up early to pray (Mark 1:35-38)
  • He often withdrew to lonely places and prayed (Luke 5:16)
  • He stayed up all night praying before choosing his disciples (Luke 6:12)
  1. Prayer and miracles go hand in hand, because something happens in the spiritual realm when we pray, though we may not always notice or feel it. God’s presence is so much more than a feeling.Read More
