Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
“Do you best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
As we know, we must speak the truth in love. When we fight, we must be able to fight with tact. But, we must know how to fight properly. Welcome to part two of my trilogy of “Fight For Our Rights.”
You walk into the classroom, about to take a test. You hope you know the answers for the test, but no one knows the deep truth: you didn’t study sufficiently. You aren’t the least bit confident because you know that you would, most likely, fail the test.
If this happened in real life, then that moment would be just plain terrible. BUT think of it this way.
You trudge to the building where your debate with an atheist is to happen. You wish you could go run and hide because you feel like you didn’t study God’s Word well enough. That debate would be the most embarrassing moment of your life!
Doesn’t that just strike the importance of knowing God’s Word?
Now, you may never participate in a formal debate with an atheist, but you may never know when you’ll be talking with someone who is not saved. It is very important that you know the Bible so you can quote scripture and interpret it well.
“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed if their slander.”
We all should do a better job studying God’s Word, am I right? We should be prepared for all situations to give an answer for the faith we have on the day of battle.
As you may know, or may not know, I was writing a follow up devotion to my “Bible Memory is IMPORTANT” devotion about studying the Word of God. Well, I’ll just make that devotion this! Here are five reasons why it is important to study God’s Word!
Wait, why can’t I do a list? You know I can’t write a post without giving a list. Please? Don’t worry, this list is good.
Sorry, I was talking to the owner of this site. (I wonder who that is.)
Okay, here we go.
1. To Know the Ways of God
To know God’s Word is very important. To know it well will help us build up our confidence when we go out into the battle field to fight!
Let us carefully study the Word of God!
Hey, guys, two things.
First, I want to hear how you study the Bible! What is your normal routine when you do your Quite Time in the morning? You don’t have to answer this question, but it might be cool to share with others how we spend time in God’s Word.
And, there are places online to study and learn about the Word of God! Like you can read encouraging articles on the Rebelution, the Soldiers of God, and Not Just a Teen. You can read uplifting journal notes on Noteworthy and Christopher Green. You can read devotionals on Christopher 164 and Our Daily Bread. And you can discuss God’s Word on the new Disqus channel Theology. There are so many places online to learn about God’s Word and to grow in your knowledge!
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
