Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
There are three tenets of our faith that are paramount:
Studying The Word
Hearing The Word
Speaking The Word
And all of these of no real value, practically speaking, if we do not connect the dots, if you will. How many people do you know that can quote scriptures from memory but seem to be clueless with regard to their true spiritual meaning and their application in our daily lives?
That is the purpose of this bible study group!

A Word From Your Host
(Hos 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
The people of God were not destroyed because they did not have biblical knowledge. The people in the time of our Lord were liken to many Christians today who know their scriptures inside and out. They could easily quote the word of God from memory. But that which was in their mind was not in their heart. Subsequently, in the sight of God, they rejected His word because they were hearers of the word and not doers of it.
(Mat 23:13) But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Why did Jesus make this rebuke against the leaders of the Israeli people?
(Mat 23:3) All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
(Mat 23:4) For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
You see brothers, sisters and friends, the written word of God is often referred to as Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth and it is truly that. What good is instruction however if we do not put that information to practical use?
Now we are not talking about legalism here nor are we speaking of performance based Christianity. What we are talking about is first discovering the whole truth of the word as revealed by the Holy Spirit of God:
(Joh 14:26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Secondly we are talking about allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us:
(Joh 16:13) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
In other words our purpose is to help each other, as members of the body of Christ, to operate in the way of the kingdom of God on earth by first discovering the spiritual truth (knowledge) of our scriptures and secondly how to apply that knowledge to our lives (wisdom).
I pray that you join us in this quest because every member of the body is unique and has something that is needed by the rest of the body. Every one of us has something special to contribute to the whole of the body for the health of the whole body.
