At the end of the day

What matters?

God's glory.

What does that mean in my life?

Obedience, delighting in God, dedication to His truth.
Which overflows into relationships with others.
Which ultimately brings Him glory.

What are the things that don't matter so much then, in light of that?
Probably a lot of the things that I care so much about.

Purpose of Studying the Bible

To know God better.
To sharpen our swords for the battle.
To guard ourselves with truth against lies.
To learn how to live in obedience.
To store it in our hearts
And share it with others
And pass it to our children.
To meditate on it day and night.
To keep our ways pure.
To delight in God.
To wash ourselves each day.
To appreciate the depth of the Gospel.
To eat daily.
To renew our minds and revive our hearts.

To renew and deepen our dependence on God.
To always be able to give an answer to those who ask us to give reason for our faith.
To become more like the One we spend time with.
So that God shows us how he searches our hearts.
To be sharpened.


The Word is SO GOOD
