“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth,” 2 Timothy 2:15.
To live is to learn. As long as we are living and breathing; we are gathering new information, some good, some bad and other information is just neutral. If we want to learn a new skill, we either read the instructions, or take a class taught by an instructor. We can physically go to a class or google someone teaching on the subject we desire to learn. As long as one has the aptitude to learn a skill set; our world offers many venues in which to develop that skill.
The same is true of God’s Word. We can study to show ourselves approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of truth. Women and men, boys and girls can memorize and hide God’s Word in our hearts, so that we might not sin against Him. We can meditate on a passage of scripture, so that it will go deeply into our mind and heart. We have the option to find amazing teachers who can break it down for us but there is something about holding God’s Word in your hands, whether by i-phone, i-pad, computer or a hard copy of the Bible. As we pour over these inspired words, He pours life and hope into us, through the divine power of His Holy Spirit. His words are sweetness to the sour soul, light to the darkened heart, full of love for the one who feels unloved and wisdom to those who hunger and thirst to learn the ways of God.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord, may I always have the desire to learn from You. You are the Master Teacher. Along with head knowledge, we ask that You would give us a heart to understand and apply Your Word to our lives on a daily basis. We ask this in the powerful Name of our Lord Jesus and for His sake alone. Amen
