Bible Study every Wednesday at 6:30pm CST. Bible Series “Beatitudes: Developing Spiritual Character”
As the journey of faith-building grows, studying God’s Word is crucial. Study @ is a creative way of studying scripture in a relevant manner that offers options for all to grow spiritually at anytime of the day.
Why should we study the bible? The simple answer is because God in His word tells us to
2Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Scripture is the tool God has given us and it is our duty to study it, know it, and apply it. 2Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
* Studying the bible develops an appetite for God’s word and allows for spiritual growth:
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
* Studying the bible gives us the opportunity to know God and to reveal His character: God is not an inanimate object but a living God. As believers we should know God on a much more personal level then the world. We learn through His word that He is a loving God offering comfort, peace, and grace. He is our hope and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who is our savior. The attributes of God and His love and grace is probably a endless list but by studying His word we will develop a greater appreciation and a thankful attitude toward God as we see Him unfold in the scriptures. If we do not know God, how can we love and appreciate what he has done for us?
Ephesians 3:19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
