167. Is the Bible meant only for the use of pastors?
No, the Bible is given to every church member to read.
I should see it as an invaluable privilege that I too have a Bible. It is our “daily bread”. Here God Himself speaks to me!
- How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. (Psalm 119:9)
- Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)
- But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:14-17)
