The Value of the Word

From Chapter 7 of When I Don’t Desire God by John Piper (read the chapter for the Biblical references to these benefits):

10 benefits of the Bible:
1. The Word of God awakens and strengthens faith.
2. Through hearing the Word, God supplies the Holy Spirit.
3. The Word of God creates and sustains life.
4. The Word of God gives hope.
5. The Word of God leads us to freedom.
6. The Word of God is the key to answered prayer.
7. The Word of God is the source of wisdom.
8. The Word of God gives us crucial warnings.
9. The Word of God enables us to defeat the devil.
10. The Word of God is, therefore, the source of great and lasting joy.
