“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort” (2 Timothy 2:15-17)
I was sharing God’s Word with a a few months back, in the process I mentioned certain striking truths about the new creation which the fellow had never heard before. Stunned by the revelations of God’s Word that I shared with him, he said, “I have been going to church for 25 years and our priest didn’t ever tell us that.” I smiled and said to him “Your priest didn’t tell you because he problly didn’t know it.”
It’s interesting to know that the reason many Christians don’t have information about God’s plans and purposes for their lives is that they don’t study the Word for themselves. For some, the most they know of the Bible is to recite a few old hymns, But that won’t do you any good. That fellow I was sharing the Word with didn’t think there was any problem with his ignorance of the scriptures.
I made up my mind many years ago to know God’s Word for myself. To achieve this, I decided to invest quality time studying and meditating on the Word, seeking to know the “What,” “How” and “Why” of the scriptures. Knowing the “what” means knowing your inheritance in Christ; knowing everything He has put in place for you. It involves knowing who you are, your rights, privileges and authority in Christ Jesus.
However, it’s not enough to merely know what God has given you; you have to know “how” to take advantage and enjoy your inheritance in Christ. Thus knowing the “how” means learning to take possession of what the Word of God says belongs to you—taking possession of what’s rightfully yours. Knowing the “Why” is coming into the full understanding and awareness of your inheritance in Christ, and why you should expect the blessings of the Lord to come to pass in your life. It makes you understand the purpose of the blessing so you can use it rightly.
When you make up your mind to know God’s Word for yourself this way, the devil will a difficult time to cheat you out of God’s best! You’ll be armed with enough information to quell his schemes and frustrate his maneuvers. Study the Word today, for it pays to know the Word for yourself!
A lot of effort is put forth so that people can know God. I agree wholeheartedly that we should introduce people to God. Everyone has a need to have a relationship with Him. When someone makes a decision to accept Jesus, they have made the greatest decision they will ever make. The work of salvation is then complete, but there is still much to do. You see, once someone gets to know the God of the Word, they need to get to know the Word of God. For close to 8 years we have placed great importance and emphasis on the teaching of the Word of God here at Scriptural Seeds Ministries..

“The more you read the Bible; and the more you meditate on it, the more you learn and be astonished with it.”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the Bible. I realize many men and women have died that I might have a copy of it in my life. It truly is a treasure and a light to my path. Please help me to read it, dig into it, and spend my days going through the incredible riches of this supernatural book. Thank you for making your Word available to me. I declare that I’m increasing in knowledge and understanding, and the Word of God is producing in me what it talks about. Thank You God for writing Your love letter straight to me called the Bible. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
