What makes the Bible such a powerful Book?

The Bible is powerful because it came forth from the mouth of God. That's why we call it the Word of God. Notice what this Scripture declares:
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
(2 Tim. 3:16-17)
I like the phrase "God-breathed"! That means that the Bible came out of God's mouth. He used men to write it, but it's His Word and not man's.

God took control of men and caused them to write down His words to mankind (2 Peter 1:21). As a result the Bible isn't like any other book. Notice what Jesus, who was God the Son, said about the Word of God:

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life (John 6:63).

The Bible contains the Word of God, which is spirit and has life. The word life in the above text is the Greek word "Zoe," which means "the God kind of life or life that comes from God."

The Bible is full of the Word of God which is a spiritual substance having God's life in it. This is why the Bible is such a powerful book. This powerful substance - the life of God - has the supernatural ability to teach and equip the Christian.
