According to the King James Version of The Bible, God said that Christians should, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15) In another verse it says, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear." (1 Peter 3:15) If for no other reason, these two verses give good reasons why a Christian should study verses in the Bible. One more verse that helps answer this questions is Psalm 119:11 "Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee."
