A theme of Scripture often overlooked is what the Bible promises to do for God’s people. The Word, under various synonyms, is said in Psa. 19:7, 8 to convert the soul, make wise the simple, rejoice the heart, and enlighten the eyes. These great rewards are given to all who keep the precepts of Scripture, v. 11.
Men are born again through the instrumentality of the Word, Jas. 1:18; 1 Pet. 1:23.
Faith comes to believers as they hear the Word, Rom. 10:17.
Spiritual growth results from the realized desire for the sincere milk of the Word, 1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Pet. 3:18.
Great peace have they who love God’s Word, Psa. 119:165.
Those who obey it are promised divine blessings, Jas. 1:25.
In the same way that Christ overcame the devil by using the written Word, Matt. 4:1-11,
Christians are able to overcome the wicked one as the Word abides in them, 1 John 2:14.
Paul spoke of the Word as able to build us up, Acts 20:32.
An entire book has been written to provide the assurance of salvation which is normal Christian experience, 1 John 5:13.
It is the Word that sanctifies or cleanses, John 17:17, acting as a laver which reveals sin and provides cleansing as well, Eph. 5:25-27.
The promise is given that those who honor the Word will find prosperity and success in all of God’s will, Josh. 1:8; Psa. 1:3.
