Students, here is today’s devotional from our Bible Study this week:
Begin by asking God to reveal Himself and His truth to you today.
When you are trying to get to know someone, where do you start?
–Check out his or her Internet or gamer profile
–Invite him or her to hang out
–Ask other people about him or her
–Strike up a conversation and ask lots of questions
–Watch to see what he or she does or says
There are lots of ways to get to know someone. The more time you invest in discovering what someone is like,the more you find out and the more accurate your impression will be of that person.
How would you rate your understanding of who God is?
Read Colossians 1:25-27. What is the mystery that is revealed to us through God’s Word?
Skip down to Colossians 2:2. What type of understanding does Scripture promise?
A relationship with God is just like any other relationship. The more time you invest in digging into His Word—the Bible—the more you discover about who He is. Each thing you learn helps you piece together His nature, heart, and desires.
Every bit of knowledge you gain about God helps you develop an intimate relationship with Him. So what are you waiting for? Dig in! It is time well spent.
