Not everything in life comes with an instruction manual. But Thank The Lord we have the Bible, it’s 66 books full of wisdom, testimonies, prophecies and promises. I heard one pastor abbreviate it to stand for:

B – Basic
I – Instructions
B – Before
L – Leaving
E – Earth

Isn’t that cool? I love the Bible and I thank God for it everyday because without it, I would be eternally lost.

Below are my 10 reasons why this is the best book to read:

  1. God wrote it so that we wouldn’t have to scramble through life without a some kind of guide.
  2. The people in it were like us and struggled through the same things we do and their stories are encouraging while others are a warning to avoid making the same mistakes they made.
  3. The prophecies foretold have and are still coming true today.
  4. There are promises to God’s people to remind us that our God is almighty to handle anything we go through.
  5. The history explains how life began and why we’re in this spiritual war.
  6. The book of Proverbs contains so much wisdom and to discern right from wrong.
  7. There’s songs and prayers of worship as a pick-me-up to bring laughter to feed the soul.
  8. The Bible teaches us how to pray giving us insight into the heart of God.
  9. It lets us into what to expect in the future when Jesus returns for the church.
  10. Best of all, we know in the end God wins over the enemy! And His people who receive Him will be with Him forevermore!

When you’re trying to assemble a piece of furniture, you know how important those instructions are, right? Without them, the piece won’t get put together correctly.

And, in order to live triumphantly, we need the Bible.
