HE’S IN THE BOOK
As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you May grow thereby.
~ 1 PETER 2:2
To become more like Christ you need to know the Word of God. You need to know how Christ lived when He was on earth, and the only place to learn that is the Scriptures, which are the revelation of Christ. The Old Testament sets the scene for Him, creates the need for Him, and predicts His coming. The gospels record His arrival. The Book of Acts describes the immediate impact of His ministry. The epistles delineate the long-term significance of His life and ministry. And Revelation details His future return and judgment of earth.
Christ is the focus of the entire Bible, and you need to study it to know what He is like. Too often we study the Bible for the sake of theological arguments or to answer questions. Those things are important, but the main point of Bible study is to know more about Christ so that you can be like Him.
