Let’s yearn to be mighty in the Word

It was said of a man named Apollos in Acts 18:24 that he was “mighty in the scriptures”. Now thatbe mighty in the Word t-shirtmakes me drool.

Certainly this is not something that one can receive in his sleep. It takes much effort. It requires more than reading through the Bible. It requires careful meditation and diligent study of God’s Word!

We will do well to take heed to the Apostle Paul’s counsel that we “give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:13). Consider his words to Timothy, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).

My dear brethren, we must be mighty in the Scriptures, which is our infallible manual concerning faith and practice. God has prepared and preserved it for us for our profit (cf. 2 Timothy 3:16-17). Let us seek to be thoroughly furnished by God’s Word.

Commit yourself to a daily devotion of God’s Word. Make full use of the many opportunity available to you for your growth in biblical knowledge. Be mighty in God’s Word!

  1. Some tips in following the reading plan.End each day’s reading with a short lesson that impresses or touch your heart most. Example: Jan 1 reading: Gen:1-3 (The order of creation..the animals and living things first.WHY? God’s wisdom. Men has dominion over them) Matt:1 ( Study of Generations can be boring! not so if you go buy a chart on the Genealogy of Jesus Christ and trace back from what one is reading. This so great when it comes to the book of Kings)Jan 2 Gen:4-6 ( The first Murder recorded for our learning and God’s displeasure) When one start taking short notes the reading comes to life and precious lessons are remembered. Make it a habit if time constraint reading one chapter before you start the day and end one more chapter before you retire to bed. If time permits reading an extra chapter so that on days where one is bombarded with extreme work schedule you can still catch up and not be left too far behind. It is better to address each chapter carefully and note the lessons learn than trying to beat the reading plan when you are behind. God Bless
