“The Holy Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15).
In the Bible, we have God’s written Word. The Bible points us to Christ. He is God’s living Word – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God … The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:1,14). What do we learn as we read God’s written Word? – This is what we learn: “Jesus loves me. This I know, for the Bible tells me so.” God speaks to us His written Word so that we may come to trust in Christ, the living Word – “from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15).
Reading the Scriptures, we become wise for salvation as we find Christ who is our Wisdom (2 Timothy 3:15; 1 Corinthians 1:30).
