Study the Bible

Background

There are so many ways to grow in the Lord these days.

Inclusive are going to Church, small group discussions, listening to gospel music, and listening to your favorite youtube pastors.

 

Study Time

Yet, beloved, I will encourage you to set aside quiet time to study it for and by yourself.

There is just a lot of noise out there that has so little to do with your savior’s gospel.

Times & Seasons

Though your favorite prophetic voice wants to corner God into a time and season.

It is nothing new.

The disciples tried 2000 years ago.

We have inherited the same yearning.

Having said time remains with God, he said you will receive the Holy Spirit, its power & grace, to be his witness.
