Bible Study

Studying the Bible is invaluable. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled” (Matt. 5:6). Peter said, “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” (1 Pet. 2:2). Thus, if you hunger and thirst for righteousness, go to the Word of God.

The Word tells us about God’s plan for saving man (Rom. 1:16-17). It declares Jesus as the Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (Jn. 1:29). It reveals the church for which Jesus died (Eph. 5:25; Matt. 16:18). Indeed, it contains the wisdom of God (1 Cor. 2:7-13).

Some say the Word of God cannot be understood. Peter did say some passages are difficult to understand (2 Pet. 3:15-16). Yet, they can be understood. Paul wrote, “How that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)” (Eph. 3:3-4). And, Jesus said, “You shall know the truth” (Jn. 8:32). Therefore, the Word of God can be understood.

Sometimes it helps to have others assist us in our understanding. Philip helped the Ethiopian study God’s word (Acts 8:30-38). Aquila and Priscilla taught Apollos “the way of God more accurately” (Acts 18:24-26). We are happy to help or be helped by others in such things. If you want to study God’s Word, contact us. We will arrange for a personal study at your convenience.
