STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED
One of the greatest problems we face in the world today is the Church, we have somehow lost our power. We have become an entity as in 2 Tim.3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
When we look at the condition of the world, not just this country (although it is in terrible condition) but the entire world, it is very easy to see that the most powerful entity on the planet has lost its ability to call on our creator to destroy the work of the enemy. And I know it’s because we as a body of believers don’t have the proper relationship with the Father, reason being, we don’t know & believe His word, and if we don’t know His word… we don’t know Him! “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God”. John 1:1 (Genesis of the N.T.)
It is totally impossible to build your faith without studying the word of God... There is nothing more important on this earth than learning how to apply the word of God to our lives !!! I know there seems to be a million and one things that are more important, because the bible is so abstract to life itself… I get that, but what we don’t seem to understand is that, the sum of all things rest in knowing the word of God and being able to apply it to our circumstance!
“Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God…” Romans 10:17.
The gospel is given, not only to be known and believed, but to be obeyed. It is not a system of notions, but a rule of practice. The beginning, progress, and strength of faith is by hearing. But it is only hearing the word, as the word of God that will strengthen our faith.
It is no great wonder why our Father has commanded us to... “study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman that be not ashamed, but rightly dividing the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15.
