You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
2 Peter 1:12
12 Wherefore [dio] I will [ameleo] not [ou] be negligent [ameleo] to put [hupomimnesko] you [humas] always [aei] in remembrance
[hupomimnesko] of [peri] these things [touton],
though [kaiper] ye know [eido] them, and [kai] be
established [sterizo] in [en] the present [pareimi] truth
12 Therefore, I shall always be
ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and
have been established in the truth which is present with you.NASB
Not being negligent,
means just that.God will not be
negligent in giving you the necessary information that will allow you to grow
up and be productive in your spiritual life.And even more than that, God will repeat His doctrines to you, over and
over, again and again, so that you always have doctrine before you, always.
You have no excuse in
life other than your own indifference toward truth.
No matter where you
look in life, there will be an example of doctrine before you.You can either choose to see it or choose to
Truth one.What you see in this life is not all that
there is to life.That is a near-sighted
view of life.There is a greater picture
to life, which is your spiritual life.
Most people get trapped
in accepting only the carnal life they have and that they experience in this
Whether kids glued to
their activity of choice, or adults glued to their entrenched daily habits, all
are subject to the trap of losing out on their infinite life in eternity, which
is certain to come.
For some your life of
eternity will begin soon.For others it will
be decades away.But it will begin for
you and most will not be ready for it, simply because they have chosen their
temporal life over their spiritual life.
And remember this.Your studies are not the sum total of your
spiritual life.You have to apply the
principles of life, to your life, obey the mandates of God, in your life, and
be responsible in your life, always.You
cannot simply skip by and hope that the world will leave you alone.It won t.
The world is going to
inundate you with enticements of games and hobbies and distractions that are
more fun, and more interesting, while Bible study is well boring.But that too, depends on your understanding
of the consequences of your actions.
School is boring for
many kids and they drop out or don t make an effort.What do they lose in life? A great deal.If only they could stick with it, and
graduate, then they would understand that having an education makes a
tremendous difference in the quality of life that they could have for themselves.
Likewise, Bible study
prepares you for far more than just a quality life.It prepares you for an unimaginable future,
with blessings, rewards, and a life that is far greater than anything that
anyone on this earth has ever had.But
you have to get with the program, and cut loose many of your former beliefs and
desires in life.
In the carnal realm,
you generally receive instant gratification from your activities.In the spiritual realm, this is not so
obvious, but then this is where God separates the immature from the mature, the
useless from the useful.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
