Key Point: The Word of God is a complete guide to living our daily lives; as Christians we are to live in accordance to the scriptures. Bishop David Oyedepo, said in one his preaching that the Bible is not just a religious book; it is a manual for living, it is a manual for profitable living.
Living our lives according to the Word would draw us closer God, would make us know the promises of God for our lives (Joshua 1:8, Jer. 29:11) as we mediate on it and would help us continue stay on the path of righteousness, which pleases God.
