When we first become believers in salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, studying the word of God is essential in order for us to grow, to be set free from sin, and to consolidate our faith. The malefactor on the cross (Luke 23:39-43) died within a few hours of becoming a believer in Jesus, and had no time to study the word of God or do anything more than confess his belief, and endure to the end. Although this was God's will for him, it won't be for most of us, so when God, by his grace, gives us more time than this, he will undoubtedly expect us to use it to find out his will for our lives, and to do it. Our sincerity will be proven by our willingness to study God's word and conform our lives to be obedient to it. Six hundred thousand Israelite men came out of Egypt with the promise of the promised land (Exodus 12:37), and all except two failed to receive it because of disobedience (Numbers 14:26-30). In the same way, those of us who are saved out of the world and given the promise of the kingdom of God, will fail to receive it if we are disobedient.
All of us who can see, read and hear, will be expected to use our abilities to enable us to grow spiritually by studying the word of God, so that God can fulfil his purpose in our lives. Our fate if we do not is revealed in the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30, Luke 19:11-27), so we need to consider carefully these reasons for studying the word of God. This bible study gives us numerous scriptural reasons why we should study God's word. If you have benefited from reading this study, then please tell your friends about this website.

Please copy and paste this link into Facebook and Twitter to all your friends who need to know why study the word of God. Today I would like to share with you the three reasons why every Christian has to study the Word of God. I am not saying these are the only reasons why one must find time to study the Word, but they are among the many reasons why you should do so. To know the will of God Knowing the will of God is important especially when you are praying. Some of our unanswered prayers are a result of not knowing the will of God. The Bible is so clear in that if we ask anything according to His will, He will answer us. What a powerful promise this is. Despite that, the Lord has promised to answer what we ask Him for but there is a condition attached to and that is if we ask according to His will only.
The Bible is the only book where God has revealed His will to us. Let me give you a practical example of how praying according to His will has changed my life. Some years ago, I encountered which says that those who dwell in His shelter will not fear the pestilence that stalks at night. At that time, I was one of the people who a year could not pass without getting sick but after I read this verse I realized that God does not want me to get sick. Now after knowing His will over my life, my prayer changed from asking him to protect me from diseases and sicknesses to declaring that I will never be sick again. It has been more than seven years now ever since I got sick and I can firmly say that I will never get sick again. Glory! You know now why it is important to study His word? is just an example where God has revealed His will towards our life. Start studying the Word and you will be amazed at what you will learn about His will. To renew our mind tells us not to conform to the pattern of this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. How can we renew our mind? We renew our mind by studying the Word of God. The Word of God has changed my way of thinking over the years. Before I came to know the Lord, I used to think about filthy things. I could not sleep until I think about something dirty.
The few years I have been with Lord, His Word has sanctified my mind and the more I study His Word, the more I think the way He does. The Word of God is the only truth which can transform the way we think. The Word speaks to us in times of trouble About three years ago my family went through the darkest days of our lives. Something really bad happened that left every member of my family distressed and hopeless. It was the first time I experience such trauma in my life. My whole body felt so weak. I was not sick physically but I just felt sick in my soul and I could not find the strength to pull myself together. I could see my Bible lying on the ground but I could not pick it up and read it. During this time, I learned something really important and that s the fact that the Word we study now gives us strength in times when reading the Bible is just not possible. Like I said earlier, I could not study my Bible because of what I was going through but the Word of God that I had studied sometime back was popping up in my mind and giving me the strength. My fellow Christian, if you have not been in a similar situation to mine you may not know what I am talking about, but I tell you the Word of God gives us strength in times of trouble when you do not even have the strength to pull your Bible from the drawer. Shalom.
