      What Does God Want us to Do with our Bible

      Here are four things God wants us to do:

      1. Read and study the bible each day
      2. Believe the bible
      3. Memorize verses from the Bible and
      4. Obey the Bible.

      Let us think about each of these things

      1 Read the Bible each day: We should read and study
      the Bible each day because God tells what we should
      know and what He wants us to do. He said � Man shall
      not live by bread alone but every word of God� (Luke 4:4)

      2. Believe the Bible: Faith is believing Bible. �Forever
      O Lord your word is settled in Heaven� Ps 119:89. �Faith
      comes by hearing the word of God� Rom 19:17. If you
      believe bible your faith will grow day by day. If you
      like to have more faith you have to read God�s word,
      believe it and act upon it.

      3. Memorize verses from the Bible: Bible is the word
      of the Spirit (Eph 6:17). That means that it is our
      weapon to use against Satan. Jesus defeated Satan in
      the desert quoting the verses from the Bible. Each
      time Satan tempted Him, the Lord Jesus said� It is
      written� and He quoted a scripture verse. We must
      memorize verses if we must memorize God�s word. This
      is hiding God�s word in our heart (119:11). If you
      use your own words in talking to others they may say
      � That is your own opinion�. But if you quote the
      Bible, your words will have power because they
      are God�s words.

      4. Obey the Bible. The Lord wants us to obey His words.
      � Not every one who says to me � Lord, Lord � shall
      enter the kingdom of God, but he who does the will of
      my Father in heaven� (Mathew 7: 21). God blesses those
      who obey His word (Luke 11:28)

      Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, start study with
      Gospel of John. Under line the word �believe�. John 20:31
      says the gospel was written to help us �believe� on Jesus
      as the son of God and as our Lord and Savior. After
      completing John, you will want to read the entire New
      Testament and then the whole Bible. God promises special
      blessings to those who love His word and think about it
      day and night (eg. Ps 1). Share the wonderful truth you
      study from Bible with a friend. The most important reason
      for studying the bible is to know God better and to obey Him.

      This article is issued to encourage every member of the
      forum to study the Bible at least once in your life time.
      It is a great blessing to study Bible. God will help you
      learn, if you put your desire before God.

      I had a desire to study Bible before 30 years. I spent
      8 hours a week since 1983 and completed study the whole
      NT and 90% of OT by 2002. I am very thankful to God for
      sending good teachers and supplying wonderful study
      material to study the Bible.

      Since Church observes 2004 as the �year of Bible�, it
      is apt to start Bible study now.
