Becoming Better Bible Students
by Richard Mansel
The Bible is God’s inspired book (2 Timothy 3:16-17). From it, we find the path to heaven (Romans 10:17). Therefore, we should be eager to immerse ourselves in God’s Word.
How can we presume to follow and emulate a Savior that we know nothing about? Christians must develop the initiative and routine to read and study God’s Word on their own (John 14:15).
We must be very careful when we study so we can learn the truth of the Gospel. We must be diligent to monitor the veracity of the teachings of men (Galatians 1:6-9; 1 Timothy 4:1).
We must never tamper with the Word of God (Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18). In fact, we’re warned not to even think beyond what is written (1 Corinthians 4:6).
There are many guidelines that we can use to become better Bible students.
