DAY 2 THURSDAY: JULY 2020

STUDYING GOD’S WORD EVERYDAY IN LIFE!

Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matthew 22:29).

Every Christian needs to study God’s Word everyday to enable him grow spiritually in life. Until you learn to study God’s Word everyday, you will continue to live a life of heresy full of mistakes and controversy. The Bible says in the opening text that Jesus Christ answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.” The ability to know the Scriptures keeps you afloat and steady in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always study His Word in life. A Christian is expected as a matter of necessity strives to study God’s Word everyday in order to grow both physically and spiritually forever.

The Word of God is the Bread of Life. When God gave the children of Israel manna to eat in the wilderness, He vehemently warned them to take and eat fresh manna for the day in life (Exodus 16:4). In the same way, every Christian needs the fresh Bread of Life everyday. That is why Jesus Christ said in John 6:48 thus, “I am the bread of life.” Therefore, Jesus Christ is the actual Bread of life that brings hope of eternal life to man. A Christian needs the Bread of Life daily to keep his life constantly steady and afloat in life. Every Christian needs the Bread of Life everyday to keep his life alive and active forever.

Studying God’s Word everyday keeps you vibrant and alive in the spirit. When your spirit is alive, your life will be fruitful. That is the reason why the Bible says in Joshua 1:8, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to always study and meditate upon God’s Word which is the Bread of life, definitely his life becomes a model to others in life. Everyone who sincerely seeks for true prosperity and development from God who is the Source of life should endeavor to use God’s Word as his manure of life forever.

Daily Tip: Studying God’s Word everyday keeps your spirit vibrant and alive devoid of heresy and mistakes in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does (James 1:25).
