Gifted

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:31, 32)

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Psalm 119:11)

Have you ever received a gift? I mean a jaw dropping, “I-can’t-believe-they-gave-that-to-me” kind of gift?

Last Christmas my wife got me that kind of gift. She recorded my response as I opened the iPad she got me for Christmas. It was pretty cool, and the video was hilarious. I was blown away by her generosity.

A Gift From God
Did you know that God has given you the most precious gift you can ever have? Many people today don’t have access to this gift. People have given their lives for it, and in America we have a tendency to take it for granted.

I’m talking about the Bible. God has revealed Himself to us through the pages of scripture. The Bible has the power to be life changing. But it won’t change your life if you don’t…

  1. Read it.
  2. Study it.
  3. Memorize it-strategically to help you grow and fight temptation.
  4. Apply it.
    Application
    How precious is the Bible to you? Are you seeking to do what it says? Are you reading it? When was the last time you memorized it?
