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.

Colossians 2:2



2 That [hina] their [autos] hearts [kardia] might be comforted, [parakaleo] being knit together [sumbibazo] in [en] love, [agape] and [kai] unto [eis] all [pas] riches [ploutos] of the full assurance [plerophoria] of understanding, [sunesis] to [eis] the acknowledgement [epignosis] of the mystery [musterion] of God, [theos] and [kai] of the Father, [pater] and [kai] of Christ; [Christos] KJV-Interlinear



2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God's mystery, that is, Christ Himself, NASB



God gave us the written word, in order that our hearts, the actively functioning or thinking or thought process, of our soul, might be settled, confident, rested, relaxed, poised, not worried, not tense, not intimidated, not stressed, not anxious, about life, about your own life, and about your future, and the certainty of your future with Him.


This level of comfort comes from the knitting together of doctrine, in your soul. This knitting process is the apparatus which God has designed to enable us to learn doctrine, understand doctrine, metabolize doctrine into our soul, to possess doctrine, to apply doctrine, and thus grow up to the ultimate goal of spiritual maturity.


Maturity does not come only from hearing the word, but from the entire method of this knitting process, which ties the spiritual life, in all of its aspects, together.


Pretense of a Christian life is not enough, imitation of a Christian life is not enough, going through the outward actions of the Christian life is not enough.And in fact any one of these or all of these when they exclude Gods total process for growing, are simply evil attempts to generate an artificial spiritual life, which is not a real spiritual life.


Love here, agape, is a reference for the principles of doctrine, the mandates, the precepts, the total content of the scriptures as they should be applied to ones life.This is not a reference to anything emotional, or affectionate.


The result of your spiritual growth to maturity, is the blessing, the phenomenal blessings which accompany that spiritual achievement. An immature believer does not receive those advanced blessings.


There are blessings for simply having believed in Christ, that is certain, but there are advanced blessings, beyond ones imagination, for those, and only for those, who advance in their spiritual life.


To be saved is good, but to take your spiritual life seriously, and to pursue spiritual growth with a genuine passion for wanting to grow up, is infinitely better. The word for understanding, sunesis, is a complimentary word for the knitting process, the putting together, for the opening of the eyes and being able to tie it all together, to see, to understand, to comprehend life.


All of this resulting in the truth, the knowledge, the wisdom regarding God (the ultimate power and wisdom), even the Father (the author of the divine plan), and Christ (the Son, the one who makes it all happen).


You have been placed on notice, for your life.You have the warnings and the instruction.


You can pursue your daily life in this temporal world, getting easily upset, expecting things from others, wanting your way, allowing your sin nature to rule your life, and consequently defeating yourself and losing your entire eternal future.


Or, you can get your life together, and get serious about doctrine, and become a winner and successful, and gain self control over your life, in the only place that it will count when history and your life are all said and done.
