Use Bible Study For Your Benefits
(Passage: Nehemiah 8)
Humans are quick to seeking for any shortcut to success, but the real secret to life achievements is reserved in the Bible. Anyone who aspires success must make Bible study his daily habit.
The word of God gives good guidance and can help anyone succeed. We can understand the benefits derived from a diligent Bible study by examining the lives of Nehemiah in the Bible.
Nehemiah and his fellows were exile Jews forcefully taken from their homeland to a faraway country. They were far from the temple but were not far from the word of God.
The people meditated in the word of God until they could understand the plans of God for their lives. They got the ideas that would lead to their deliverance.
Nehemiah and his fellows were able to obtain guidance from the scripture and eventually able to return to Jerusalem (from Babylon) and rebuild its wall.
Nehemiah and his people focused on researching the scripture to understand the mind of God, and they got what they wanted. It was later reported,
“… Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly of men and women and all who could hear with understanding on the first day of the seventh month. Then he read from it in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate from morning until midday, before the men and women and those who could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law” (Nehemiah 8:2-3).
Bible Study Is Meant For Our Benefits
Read your Bible to get exposed to God’s mind!
We read the scripture to understanding the requirement of God, and at the same time gain the momentum to comply with them.
Among many other benefits to receive in studying the word of God, a student of the Bible will learn how to repent of his sin and live a holy and acceptable life for his Maker.
It may sound difficult to understand but the fact remains that the studying of the word of God will lead anyone into having lasting peace, success, joy, and prosperity. (The genuine version of those benefits can only be found in studying the word of God – The Bible.)
Every child of God should consider it his (or her) top priority to meticulously study his (or her) Bible to live victoriously.
If there’s one book that everyone should read and understand, it must be the Bible. It isn’t just another book on the shelve. It is a tool passed down to us by God to earn us every blessing of life.Click to tweet
