How does Bible study really help?

The Bible can make us "wise unto salvation through faith in Christ."

 

Thank you for your question.

The Bible is able to make us wise unto salvation.

NIV 2Timothy 3:15 and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

The Bible is able to give us encouragement and hope.

Romans 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

The Bible is able to teach us how to live lives acceptable to God.

2Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

The Bible is able to teach us about Christ.

Luke 24:27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

John 5:39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me,

The Bible is the truth.

John 10:35 If he called them ‘gods’, to whom the word of God came— and the Scripture cannot be broken—

The Bible is able to prove that Jesus is the promised Messiah.

Acts 18:28 For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

The Bible is able to make clear to us the Gospel.

Romans 1:2 the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures

The Bible is able to teach us about imputed righteousness.

Romans 4:3 What does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."

The Bible is able to teach us that God rules in the kingdoms of men and sets up the Governments.

Daniel 4:17 "‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest (or basest) of men.’

The Bible is able to teach us that because God rules in the kingdoms of men, we must behave accordingly.

Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you.

4 For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.

7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honour, then honour.

The Bible is able to teach us to trust God.

Romans 10:11 As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."

The Bible is able to teach us about God’s coming kingdom.

Daniel 2:44 "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure for ever.

The Bible is able to teach us about prophecies of the signs that will herald the coming of Christ.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

The Bible is able to teach us about the restitution of Israel and the throne of David.

Luke 1:32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; his kingdom will never end."

If none of this is relevant to your question. Please ask again, giving more information.

I hope this helps
