I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.–Psalm 119:16 Dr. Howard Hendricks said,”The greatest problem in the church today is that we have an increasing number of Christians who are under the Word of God but not in it for themselves. Being under the Word of God should be a stimulus–not a substitute–for getting into it for yourself.” I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Hendricks. Churches are full of people who have never learned to feed themselves spiritually and, I don’t care how good the preacher is, you never get as much nourishment as you need just attending church–even if you attend every service. Studying the Bible daily is not just something preachers and teachers should do, every Christian should be a student of God’s Word. I can remember as a young Christian getting together with others in the church (we did that a lot back then) and talking about what we each had been studying. I never hear of people doing that today. When folks today do get together they usually talk about everything under the sun, except the Bible. If you are not a student of the Bible you have no idea what a great blessing you are missing. It is not only a blessing, it is a benefit is immense importance. It is impossible to be a healthy, strong, effective Christian without a regular diet of God’s Word. As a starter why not read Psalm 119 everyday for a week. You will be amazed! Give it a try.(O yeah–I mean the whole chapter each day).
