Reasons for Studying God’s Word
2 Timothy 2:15 tells us to :
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Jesus answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)
•Why study God’s Word?
- God said to do it, plus it shows our love, commitment and obedience to Him.
- God wants all His Children to be learned and scholarly in His Word.
3.The Word of God is the basis by which we know God.
4.The Word of God is our instruction manual for living.
- The Word of God is infallible, and the only reliable source about the past, present and the future.
- The Word of God is fully loaded with spiritual sustenance and nutrients and all that we need that pertains to life and Godliness.
Study God’s Word
(Hebrews 5:12-14 AMP) says,to the so called seasoned Christians or believers:
For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]!
But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.
•Ignorance to God’s Word is a liability and disadvantageous.
•The Word of God is the manual to live the life of God. As food is to your physical body so is the Word of God to your life, spirit, soul and mind.
•Make God’s Word your daily study.
God tells us in Isaiah 55:11 AMP :
…My WORD goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void (without producing any effect or change) but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
+God’s Word has to do what He said it will do.
+God wants us to experience His Word every day of our lives.
+We must give the Word of God the Highest Regard and Reverence. God and His Word are ONE.
+Disregard, Irreverence, and lack of faith in God’s Word are the reasons why many do not experience the fulfillment of God’s Word in our lives.
+Going forward, let us give the highest Regard, Reverence, and Honor to God’s Word. AMEN!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust, and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.
[Jude 1:24-25 NKJV]
