And now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Acts 20:32

Necessity #13: The Word of God give us comfort.

Again, Romans 15:4 says, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

I love that phrase “comfort of the Scriptures.” There is nothing to comfort my soul like sitting down with my well-worn Bible and a cup of coffee. There’s hardly anything wrong that spending time in the Scripture can’t make right.

Necessity #14: The Word of God give us joy.

Psalm 19:8 says, “The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.”

Psalm 119:111 says, “Thy testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart.”

A joyful Christian is one who is spending time in the Word. Show me a joyless Christian and at least one of his problems is that he has no disciplined time in the Scriptures.
