2 Timothy 3:16-17
 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action),
 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The Bible is God’s word that is given to us not only to train us but also to make us more like Christ.
We may want to be like Christ but without the scriptures that become Word, we may end up being left with a void that nothing else we run to will fill it sufficiently.
