This is the final point in our introduction to the book of romans bible study. We covered all the bases when considering an introduction: who, what, where, when, and why. We are left with the final question: How?
Though it seems kind of silly to think about how someone in 56 AD could write a letter. . . probably with some type of pen and some type of parchment or paper. . . the bigger point here is how Paul could have written something so timelessly relevant to us two thousand years later. The answer? The Holy Spirit.
“[The Scriptures] are able to teach you how to be saved by believing in Christ Jesus. God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right. By using Scripture, the servant of God can be completely prepared to do every good thing.”
2 Timothy 3:15-17
That is why bible study is so vital to our Christian living. That is why it’s so essential to whole living, and living for Jesus. Without the constant exploration of and meditation on God’s word, how are we to be sure we are aligned with His will? Without bible study, how are we to grow and mature in God’s family?
