High percentage of the world’s Christian population can read; may be not necessarily in the popular languages that we know; but the Bible has been written and translated into many major languages even to some dialects. Therefore most Christians should be able to study the Bible as often as possible.

The greatest cheating or robbery on earth for a Christian is to be robbed of the word of God. The word of God is the anchor of your life as a Christian. It would be a terrible thing for you as a child of God to follow only what you hear; you have to be sure that they are correct. I recommend that a little of the time you spend on those things that are not profitable to the soul be spent to study the word of God.

It is unfortunate that when it comes to time wasting, especially, in the area of texting, tweeting, gambling, going around as busy bodies and doing those things that takes away their time from having a little time for the word of God; Christians are not better than non-Christians.

Every Christian must search the scripture to know the truth rather than relying on misleading today’s interpretation of the word of God. The word of God has not changed; however, many claimed men and women of God and some self-claimed prosperity Christians are dancing to the tunes of the world. Many misinterpreted the word and are rewriting the vocabularies in the Bible to suit their selfish purpose – lucre.

You need to beware, Jesus Christ said,

“And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:” (Matt. 13:3-4)

The interpretation of the parable is this

When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side” (Matt. 13:19).

Many false men and women of God are out in the world to take the word away from you; likewise any ungodly association and self-will will take away the word away from you. There are many wolves in sheep cloth who want to take the word of God away from you or mislead you; they don’t want you to know the word, but to misdirect you to be their follower.

You need to study the word of God in and out of season because it is your GPS. The Word leads, directs, guides, reveals, strategize etc. since the time it has been revealed, the word of God has not misled or misguided except that we Christians failed to follow it. The psalmist said,

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Ps. 119:105).

Take time to read thee word of God everyday, by doing so, the blessing of the Lord which supersedes that of the worldly blessing will become yours.
