Ways to be B.A.D. #3: Study Your Bible

Every time we attend fellowship services, we hear the Pastor say STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED; He's talking about the Bible, but some people say WHAT AM I STUDYING? Then they say, what are they studying for?

First, know the scripture completely:

2 Timothy 2:15King James Version (KJV)

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

This full verse says, a workman (servant), that needet not be ashamed(for the spiritual choices you make), rightly dividing the word of truth(knowing the real from the fake; the lie from the truth). 
See, we only hear part of the verse. We have to know the FULL TRUTH, but that comes from studying. You need to know who you are and you'll find it in the word. 
So what do you as you study? You ask God to give you revelation and clarity of what you are reading. You ask God to show you what to read and why. You put God first, and He'll teach you. You can't study without a teacher. #catchthat
