In Turbulent Times, Study God’s Word

All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, 
for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 
 so that the man of God may be complete, 
equipped for every good work. 
2 Timothy 3:16-17 HCSB

The words of Matthew 4:4 remind us that, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (KJV). As believers, we must study the Bible and meditate upon its meaning for our lives. Otherwise, we deprive ourselves of a priceless gift from our Creator.

God’s Word is unlike any other book. The Bible is a roadmap for life here on earth and for life eternal. As Christians, we are called upon to study God’s Holy Word, to follow its commandments, and to share its Good News with the world.

Jonathan Edwards advised, “Be assiduous in reading the Holy Scriptures. This is the fountain whence all knowledge in divinity must be derived. Therefore let not this treasure lie by you neglected.” God’s Holy Word is, indeed, a priceless, one-of-a-kind treasure, and a passing acquaintance with the Good Book is insufficient for Christians who seek to obey God’s Word and to understand His will. After all, man does not live by bread alone . . .

The strength that we claim from God’s Word does not depend on circumstances. Circumstances will be difficult, but our strength will be sufficient. 
Corrie ten Boom

God has given us all sorts of counsel and direction in His written Word; thank God, we have it written down in black and white. 
John Eldredge

If you want to know whether you’re thinking correctly, check it out in the Word. 
Charles Stanley

Weave the fabric of God’s Word through your heart and mind. It will hold strong, even if the rest of life unravels. 
Gigi Graham Tchividjian

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Your Word is a light unto the world; I will study it and trust it, and share it. In all that I do, help me be a worthy witness for You as I share the Good News of Your perfect Son and Your perfect Word. Amen
