Learn and Apply

Text:  All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT)

Many times I have set a time-bound goal to complete a bible reading plan. Ironically, I get so carried away with the task of completing the plan that I miss receiving the everyday message. Scripture isn’t just information, but a tool for total transformation. We ought to give room daily for the word of God that we take in to make us better people by approaching the scripture with a desire of not only knowing, but also doing that which we have understood.

A believer who is just a word hearer and not a doer is simply deceiving himself (James 1:22). The word of God ought to completely influence our lives. Merely knowing we are saved is not enough; appropriating the full benefits of our salvation is what will distinguish us.

LEARN and APPLY: The difference between our today and our tomorrow is our deliberate decision to apply what we learn today. Don’t just be a ‘word’ professor, step up and be a ‘word’ practitioner.

Prayer Focus:
Dear Father, thank You for the gift of Your word and who we are in you. As we daily behold Your word, we receive the grace to apply it and declare that our lives are transformed from glory to glory in Jesus name. Amen!
