All scripture is God-breathed

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV

The diligent study of God’s word is essential for growing in maturity and in our relationship with Jesus Christ.  The only way we come to know the Lord personally and intimately is through the study of His word.  The only way our lives are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit is through the study of God’s word.

When we diligently study God’s word our lives are transformed as our minds are transformed.  There is something supernatural that takes place as we study God’s word.  Our minds align with the mind and heart of God and we begin to see the world around us as the Lord sees the world.

There are many who allow common every day things to take the place of the study of God’s word.  But if we will set aside the time and make the study of God’s word the priority of our lives then our lives will be transformed.  Those who draw near to the Lord and become a person of His presence are the same people the Lord will use greatly on the earth.  Let us be found to be faithful stewards of God’s word and study it diligently.
