II Timothy 2:15 Study to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (MEV)
As a spiritual discipline, study means using any tools available to learn all we can about the truth of God’s Word, engaging ourselves, above all, with the written and spoken Word of God. It is God through the Word that changes things, so engaging with the Word of God is essential. We never know what God is going to do in our lives, but we know that it’s going to be good, and that “the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword”, and that “all Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, rebuking and correcting.” Challenge yourself today to continually bathe yourself in the Word of God.
