MAKE IT A HABIT TO STUDY THE WORD
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow
thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious (1 Peter 2:2-3).
Just as good nutrition is indispensable to proper physical growth, God’s Word is the essential nourishment for spiritual growth. When a Christian neglects God’s Word, he’ll be susceptible to attacks from the devil and subject to the elements and corrupting influences of this world. Remember, through the Word, we renew our minds, build faith and character. Hence, we must continually feed on the Word.
2 Peter 3:18 says, “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” Then in Chapter one verse three, it again stresses the importance of the knowledge of God’s Word. It says, “According as
his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.”
God has already done for you and given you everything you require for an excellent life of glory and righteousness. However, living that life of dominion, success, and prosperity that He’s ordained for you depends on how much of His Word you know and put to work in your life. It’s about your knowledge and application of the Word.
So, get to know the Word. Jesus said you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Have a compelling desire to grow by the Word, to know God’s truth. Have scheduled times when all you do at such times is studying and meditating on the Word. Get on the Pastor
Chris Digital Library (PCDL) every day to watch and listen to faith-building messages that’ll transform your life.
Every time you open the Scriptures to study, you can learn something new and meditate on specific things the Holy Spirit brings to your consciousness. Therefore, cultivate the habit of studying the Word for yourself.
Dear Father, I thank you for putting in me a deep desire to know you through fellowship with your Word. I yield myself to be inspired, taught, educated, and trained in spiritual things, with my faith strengthened to fulfill my destiny in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
