God speaks to his people through the words of the Bible. As people read it they are not just reading ordinary words but words that come from God. It is from God. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
So the Bible is unique—it is more than a source of information about God and spiritual things. It is actually God’s guide for all of life.
Hebrews 4:12 says that God’s Word is “living and active.” This means that the Bible has the power to change lives as God speaks to us by His Spirit through the Word.
