The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.
Has anyone ever taught you how to abide in God’s Word?
Do you know how to come to the Scriptures in a manner that promotes a thriving, living relationship with Christ? For many, the guidance ends at read your Bible and pray every day.
Too many people have come to the Bible with an inadequate approach, flounder around, and then stop coming to the Bible; thinking that something was wrong with the Bible or with themselves.
Or, perhaps your time in the Bible is rich but you’d love to teach others how to grow spiritually through Bible reading but just aren’t sure how to go about the process?
The Bible itself teaches us how we are to abide in God’s Word. Words the Bible uses besides “abide” (1 John 2:14
) include “meditate” (Ps. 1:2
, Josh. 1:8
), “consider” (2 Tim. 2:7
), “look into” (James 1:25
), “dwell” (Col. 3:16
), “see” (Jer. 2:31
), “bind” (Deut. 6:7
), “receive” and “search” (Acts 17:11
), “hide” (Ps. 119:11
), “hold fast” (1 Cor. 15:2
), “piercing” (Heb. 4:12
), and even “eat” (Jer. 15:16)
