Read The Bible?
Bible is a storehouse of divine truth which will repay reading
whether it be approached merely because of its literary
value, its ethical teaching, or its practical bearing on
everyday life (e.g. the Proverbs).
for those who are prepared to study the contents of this
wonderful volume with the object of learning what God desires
of them, it offers present and future blessings beyond the
ability of man to assess (Rev. 1:3), for "eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him
(1 Cor. 2:9).
however requires study, that faith might be established
and increased. The natural man receiveth not the things
of the Spirit of God. for they are foolishness unto him:
neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned"
(1 Cor. 2:14). With study there will be developed a love
for the Book, and for its Author whose love will be revealed
therein, and by this influence the Reader will be led to
radiate that same love to others. Therefore, this divine
Book is the greatest power for good in the hands of man
- if it be read with understanding.
is important to observe precisely what the bible passage
is saying. It is the basis of correct interpretation and
goes a step further from observation and helps you understand
what the passages really mean. You need to recognise that
you are coming to bible study with a set of beliefs and
options. We all need to let God's word speak for itself
and make sure that what we believe is what the bible says.
doesn't matter how long we study the bible or how much knowledge
we aquire from it, if we don't apply what we learn.
