WHAT "ME" STUDY?

I observe my grand children in school some are ready to graduate from high school and already preparing to start college for four years plus graduate school for a few more. Why do they do this?

For the most part it is to prepare themselves to enter the work force and make a living. Due to the technical age we now live in there is much more required of job seekers today.

Some will ignore the opportunities to excel and are satisfied to barely get along. Sad to say some Christians have the same attitude toward preparing to live the Christian life.

2 timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

This is not just a suggestion but is something we are commanded to do.

First off it is so we can understand what a Christian really is and what his responsibilities are before GOD.

The second thing is to be able to communicate the Christ life to others in a concise and accurate way.

A partial understanding of the word of GOD will result in a slip shod lifestyle which isn't acceptable to GOD and strangely enough the World looks down upon it also.

The methodology used starts with daily reading the Bible; second a programmed study of the Bible until it is second nature to you.

Paul addressed one phase of learning in 1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren; I would not have you ignorant. Then he goes on and explained about the gifts and their usage.

Lets take Solomon's advice in Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

One of the commandments is to "Study to show yourself approved unto GOD"
