and how from infancy you have known the holy writings, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. — 2 Tim 3:15 NET
It is a great thing to be brought up on the Holy Scriptures. No other book can do for a life what the Bible can do. It is able to make one wise in the truest way – with a wisdom that saves one by bringing him into fellowship with Jesus Christ.
The Word of God has in it an efficacy no other book in the world has. It is profitable for teaching – instructing in holy things, the things of God and eternal life. It is profitable for reproof, convicting us of sin and declaring God’s judgement against evil. It is profitable for correction, not only showing us our faults, but leading us away from them, freeing our lives from errors and making straight what was crooked. It is profitable for instruction in righteousness, telling us how God would have us live, what qualities of character He would have us attain. One who is trained under the tuition of the Scriptures will come to a complete man, furnished for usefulness and prepared for doing whatever good work he may be called to do.
