God is very clear concerning His Word. In this gift

we have called the Bible, He has given us everything that pertains to “life and

godliness” (II Peter 1.3). Paul further alludes to this fact by saying that

“All Scripture is inspired by God (God breathed) and profitable for teaching,

for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of

God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” (I Timothy 3.16). In II

Timothy 2.15, it is also very evident that by studying this Word we achieve

God’s approval because we are handling the word of God accurately. Friends, do

we actually understand what all that means? Do we really understand what it

means to study? According to our English Dictionary, the word “study” is

defined by words like “learn, look carefully at, research, analyze and

investigate”. I really like that last word “investigate”. It almost looks at it

as a mystery that we are diligently seeking in order to discover the Truth.

However, it is a very troubling fact that most Christians do not know how to

investigate their Bible. Oh we can read it, but to study it goes so much

deeper. Be honest with yourself, when was the last time you actually studied

(not just read) your Bible?
