Being a student of the Word is not like going to College taking a few courses and within several years you walk out with a Major or Doctrine Degree. No, being a student of the Word of God is a life long assignment. We get our reward when we get to heaven but while we are here on earth the Lord Jesus shower us with blesses we reap when we bring what we have studied into our daily walk.
I know for me when I was in school I hated to study I would put it off to the last-minute matter of fact when I knew that the next day was a test or quiz I would only study the night before the test. My mother would say to me all the time that is not how you study Desi, you have to do better than what you are doing. She was right I knew I was wrong but I hated studying. But you know what I did pass every test I took even though I rushed at it the night before.
And though I hated studying when I read 2 Timothy 2:15 talk about “OUCH” that is right I have to study, but you know what? The Lord showed me a much better way to study. Later in my walk with the Lord I did go on to Ministry School and took some classes and you know what? I studied every day I never went back to my old pattern of studying.
The Lord desires all of His Children to be students of His word, not to say you are going to memorize the entire bible for each day our lives are to reflect Christ and the only way that is going to happen is when we read the word, that is how you become a student of God’s Word, according to 2 Timothy 2:15..AMEN
