BIBLE IN A YEAR: Nahum 1-3; Ephesians 6, Psalm 114:1-8
Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Matthew 5:1-3
Generally, education is imparting and acquiring knowledge through teaching and learning especially at a school, formal or informal, which leads to a systematic development and cultivation of the mind to make a person behave in a certain way (attitude, character) or profession.
It begins in the early stage of life and continues through life. It is a way of bringing enlightenment to an individual or a community. It is a powerful means of making progress and development. The Christian life begins with learning. After being saved from sin, you begin to learn the gospel. No one is made right with God unless he is saved from his sin and he forsakes them and accepts and learns about Jesus and His message of salvation to the world.
It is a message of good news called the gospel. No one believes in Jesus unless he or she has heard the story of Jesus and has an understanding of it. We cannot grow in our faith and love of Him unless we learn more about Him. We will not grow in godliness if we do not know what it means to be godly. We will not grow to be like Christ if we do not know about Christ. (MFM Daily Devotional 28 September 2022)
Great fathers in the Lord tell us to never forget that the message of the Bible is addressed primarily to the mind for understanding. God’s truth must be understood before it can be applied. People may attend church, worship faithfully, serve the Lord in and through the church eagerly, give to the work of Christ’s kingdom generously, and desire to live godly in every aspect of their lives, yet, they demonstrate little or no evidence of spiritual growth.
No one experiences the sweetness of growing closer to God and being more like Christ, unless he is first introduced to the gospel. Without learning, you will be a hindrance to the effective preaching of the gospel. For example, if you, as a preacher of the word has little or no understanding of the word, you will kill your message and no one would desire to be like you. Be prepared to learn. God bless you.
1. O God, give me the grace to study and to learn the word of God, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, surround me with people who will improve my relationship with You, in the name of Jesus.
3. Spirit of revelation of God’s word, enter into me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Power of the gospel of Christ, transform my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. I enroll myself into the school of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus.
6. Holy Spirit, teach me and use me for the furtherance of the gospel, in the name of Jesus.
