THE BIBLE, the Word of God does the Work of God!

TEXT:

Psalms 119:11 Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.

PSALMS 107:20 HE SENT HIS WORD, AND HEALED THEM, AND DELIVERED THEM FROM THEIR DESTRUCTIONS.

You do err not knowing the Word of God, or the power contained there in (Matt. 22:29, Mark 12:24.)

Today I ponder a very basic thought:

Bible reading and Bible study.

I for one, believe that dirty lifes grow from dusty Bibles.

We buy tapes, CD’s, video’s and books

to tell us how to live and we never invest time and

effort in Bible reading and study.

We often quench our thirst from muddy springs.

Growing up in Oliver Springs, TN., we often drank

out of the springs around the house, rather than

return home for a drink.

If my older brother drank first he would stir the

water and it would become muddy.

(That was OK, I did the same to him?)

We must guard our hearts and lives for the lack of knowledge can kill. We need to approach the Bible first hand, personally.

Jesus warned us:

You do err not knowing the Word of God, or the power contained there in (Matt. 22:29, Mark 12:24.)

We have many anemic, weak Christians that quote many sources other than the word of God.

This is not necessarily bad to learn from the focal point of other teachers, but we must have the safety of first hand experience from in-depth study.

The lack of personal Bible study can limit growth and set many dangerous opportunities ahead.

I thank God for teachers and preachers, but nothing should take the place of daily Bible reading and study.

I think we need both, reading and study.

Here is my opinion of personal Bible study ...

Daily Bible study functions like a sifter.

Mom used a sifter to cull out the bad.

We are to try the spirit,

1 John 4:1, and what shall be the standard measure

of truth.

(Romans 3:4.) There comes many false teachers and

false prophets that will deceive many,

I call this SLICK WILLYs, that will deliberately

laugh and take the money to the bank.

2 Timothy 4:3-5

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ( TO HAVE A RESTLESS DESIRE OR HANKERING FOR SOMETHING) ears; 4..... and SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES.

We will see more and more ministries focusing on what people want to hear...

THERE WILL BE A CRY FOR GOSPEL ENTERTAINMENT, make us laugh and feel good.

There will arise successful ministries that cater to this need.

The only way to avoid this terrible cancerous growth will be to know the WORD.

There is a line I often say that is so profound, THE WORD OF GOD DOES THE WORK OF GOD!

So your enemy, seeking to devour you and your family, he laughs when we lack the real, balanced understanding of the Word of God.

I am amazed at how our youth today,

know all about Barney (they can sing his songs

verbatim),

they can quote so many poems and clever clicks,

they can tell you telephone numbers,

and quote commercials right and left,

BUT THEY KNOW NOT THE WORD OF GOD.
