"Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” - II Timothy 2:15
To Know anything about the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit, you must study God's word. To know what is expected of you in your walk with Christ, you must study God’s word. To know the dangers of false teachings that presently exist to distort the truth of God’s word, you must study His word. You must make a continual, serious and diligent effort to study the word of God.
It’s one thing to have wisdom of God’s word, but to have the right understanding of God’s word is another thing. Spiritual understanding of God’s word can only be done under the guidance and teaching of the Holy Spirit who opens our eyes to the truth - a clear and right understanding of God’s word in all things pertaining to religion and Christian duties.
The end result of your study should not be to gain admiration from others, or even to be exalted as being more knowledgeable than others, but that you would have gained God's approval as being a diligent, skillful and careful laborer of the gospel who has not scamped or carelessly ran over his work.
Make a serious and diligent effort to study the word of God and to have a right understanding of what he is saying through His word.
