Topic: Our Responsibility of Searching the Word [Monday January 16, 2017]
Scripture: Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. John 5:39
Thought For The Day: There is no victory for the lazy Christian.
A young man was always being afflicted by nightmares anytime he slept. He decided to search through the scripture and one day, he located a Word in the Bible: ‘…for so he giveth his beloved sleep’ (Psalm 127:2b). Immediately, light from this Scripture flooded his spirit and he declared to himself, ‘From today, I receive the sleep that God gives.’ From that moment, the darkness of nightmares disappeared.
Beloved, there is something you will see in the Word of God that will give you the answer to the challenges of your life. The revealed Word of God is the answer to any challenge of life.
There is a Word that has been sent to handle every negative situation of your life (Isaiah 55:11, Jeremiah 15:16) and you ought to search for it. The reason many people are afflicted in this generation is lazy attitude towards God’s Word.
The early Christians searched the scriptures also by themselves (Acts 17:11) but nowadays, we have delegated Bible study to pastors. You have the responsibility to search the Scriptures and locate what God said concerning your life and destiny. There is no victory for the lazy Christian. So, determine to be a studious Christian.
Remember this: There is no victory for the lazy Christian
1. Sit down to search through God’s Word; don’t just read it.
2. Practice what you have found.
