Joshua 1:8, NIV: Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Bible Study. Those words mean different things to different people. In the minds of the worldly, they seem an outdated, backward notion—superfluous with regard to reality. But to the people of God, they mean something else. But what do they mean? Do the words, “Bible study,” cause us to think of something like a chore, or a task? If so, our hearts are not treasuring the Word of God as they should. “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” In that case, our hearts are most likely putting something else ahead of God—whether want or worry. Let us hope that the words, “Bible study,” are endearing words to us. Words that draw to mind thoughts of learning more about our Lord, and to our hearts, feelings of drawing closer to Him.
