Posts Tagged ‘Training in righteousness’

We must be trained to receive the Word of God. It’s a lifetime endeavor and not one for the faint-hearted. The ground of our thinking must be tilled, the fallow ground turned over and exposed to the elements, and weeds must be removed. We must learn to understand the Word, trust the Word, and then use the Word until it becomes our daily sustenance–that from which we take our nourishment to live, to thrive–what we need to survive. We must pursue the Word of God until we pant for it as the deer pants for the water brook.

Then and only then can we increase in comprehension and retention. Only then can we live as though it were (because it is) the Words of the One True and Living God who desires relationship with us. The study of God’s Word requires a submitted heart and mind to flourish under its instruction as God intended.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
