There’s a difference between simply reading the Bible and studying the Bible. Chuck Swindoll will teach us how to begin searching the Scriptures for ourselves. Listen to this practical message from Insight for Living.
If you’ve been a Christian for a while, you’ve probably found yourself skimming over certain verses that you’ve read many times before. Chuck Swindoll reminds us that there’s always something new to learn from every passage of Scripture.
Psalm 119 reveals three amazing promises that God fulfils in you when you feed yourself His Word. Verse 98 holds the first: “Your commands make me wiser than my enemies.”
Have you ever stopped to think about the benefits of having a copy of the Scriptures in your own language? Have you pondered the thought: What if the Bible never existed? In our overabundant, more-than-enough world, such thoughts are foreign…too impossible to imagine.
When Moses died, the Israelites were disillusioned and afraid. When Joshua took over as their leader, God reminded him that God knew exactly where His people were and where He wanted them to go—to the land of promise. All they had to do was trust in the Lord and step out in faith.
Each of the 176 verses in Psalm 119 says something about the Word of God. If you’re wondering what God’s Word is about, this is a great place to start.
An old German version of the Bible calls Psalm 119 “the Christian’s Golden ABC of the praise, love, power, and use of the Word of God.” If we can absorb the lessons from this chapter, we’re off to a good start.
The Reformation put Scripture into the hands of the people. God’s Word is resilient. It survives all attempts to destroy it. Don’t take your Bible for granted. Study it, learn it, know it.
God has given us His Word and it has stood the test of time. The Bible is the most reliable of all sources.
Your Bible reading will be transformed if in your time with the Lord daily you personalize the passage of Scripture. Memorizing, mixed with personalizing, will enable you to analyze.
