The Bible is the only source of knowledge of how to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no such thing as "love at first sight" in spiritual things. The believer must get to know Christ very well, and this requires the daily intake of knowledge about Christ through the Word of God, which is "the mind of Christ."
1 Cor. 2:16 "For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?
But we have the mind of Christ."
Phil. 3:10 "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his suffering, being made conformable unto his death."
Bible knowledge produces sanity and stability of mind. It is very important to get the Word of God into the heart & mind before the times of pressure come. God deals with the pressures of life using "preventive maintenance", his daily Word.
James 1:8 "A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways."
Bible doctrine is the basis for divine guidance.
Romans 12:1,2 "I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
