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.
6 As [hos] ye have [paralambano] therefore [oun] received [paralambano] Christ [Christos] Jesus [Iesous] the Lord, [kurios] so walk ye [peripateo] in [en] him: [autos]KJV-Interlinear
6 As you
therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, NASB
And so you are to knit
together a meaningful and purposeful life together by means of studying the
scriptures on a daily basis.Doctrine is
the food for the soul and food is consumed over and over, again and again, day
after day, throughout your entire life.
Do you know of anyone
who can eat only occasionally, or perhaps once in their lifetime, or perhaps
never eat during their life?Anyone who
does not pursue a decent diet will inevitably end up on their sick or death
And Bible doctrine is
the only source of foods for the soul that are healthy and good for you and taste
good too.Anything else is bad for you,
And since you are to
study and grow up, you are also to live your day to day life as Christ expects
you to live it.
The full circle of
wisdom includes the learning, the understanding, the believing, and the
application of the principles and mandates of doctrine to your daily life.This is called faith with works, in
James.The works refer to the daily
application of doctrine to your life.
No one can simply have
the information in their minds and never use it, and then expect good results.That would be unreasonable.
In order to have a spiritually
productive life, you must combine what you learn, with your daily life, and be
consistent between the two.
And this is generally
where most folks mess up in their spiritual lives.They are inconsistent in the spiritual
functions of their life.
They do not study
regularly.They do not confess their sins
to God the Father regularly (a must since you have to be in fellowship before
any aspects of your spiritual life will function properly).They do not pray regularly.
They do not apply Gods
mandates (daily study, study support, charity support, fundamental honesty,
objectivity, etc.), to their life (disobedience in effect in its many, many,
many subtle forms).They have
unreasonable expectations from life.Rather
than utilizing the principles of doctrine to judge and gauge their own life,
they have a tendency of judging others, of which judgment they have no right.Hasn t anyone ever pointed their finger at
you and said, You better re-read your Bible!
In order to have a
successful spiritual life, you have to look inside of yourself and apply Gods
standards and expectations to your own life.And certainly you have to learn and understand Gods plan for your own
life as well as Gods plan for humanity and history in general, and adjust your
life to God.
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.
