In order to know Christ and His will, the study of His word is imperative. The disciple learns God’s word and the principles for applying it through personal and corporate bible study with his discipler and his discipleship group.
It is my opinion that reading the Bible lets us know about Jesus. Just by reading we never really gain that intimacy with Jesus that a true relationship brings. Studying the Bible allows us to know the persons of God. This and prayer allows us to firmly establish that relationship.
In March I will be starting a study in Matthew using Warren W. Wiersbe’s commentary titled “Be Loyal.” If any of you want’s to join me in this study, let me know and I will delay long enough for you to get your book (if you want a book) . You can purchase your book through christianbook.com, IEAOM bookstore or many other christian bookstores. Get ready for an interesting study.
