Why should we study the Bible? For one, it’s God's most direct way of speaking to us. Many of us await some kind of Disney-like moment, where the wind blows or we see a vision in a dream to hear from God. And this is not to say that cannot or has not happened — it has. But the Bible is God’s Word and it’s here for us whenever we want to seek it. But we don’t seek God’s Word to become more saved — once saved by grace through faith, always saved — but study of God’s Word enables us to discern God’s will, both for us individually and for the world at large, and therefore, live a life of obedience to God. A life a faithful obedience will not lead to more of the world — in fact, it will lead to far less of it. The Lord does not give as the world gives. But in less of the world, and its riches, we find the riches of the Lord such as peace, contentment, impact, purpose, and eternal reward. But to see this kind of blessing in life now and eternally, we’re called to do our best to rightly handle God’s Word. Paul wrote to Timothy, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” We’re not judged on our knowledge of the Bible, we’re covered by the blood of Jesus and His righteousness by faith, but we’re called to seek the Lord, His Word, and live the life He has called us to live. Handling rightly God's Word is the best way to pursue that kind of faithful life. Today, study God's Word with fresh eyes, fresh perspective, and fresh purpose.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” - 1 Timothy 2:15
