Lesson 17

How a Believer must study the Word

Our responsibility to the Word of God conít

 

        2 Timothy 1:8Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

 

        2 Timothy 1:13-14Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing (sound doctrine) which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

 

        Hebrews 10:23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 

        Titus 1:9Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

 

Christ gives revelation of the mysteries of the Kingdom to His Children

        Matthew 13:10-11And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

        Romans 16:25Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Gentiles fellowship in the Mystery and are fellowheirs

        Ephesians 3:3-9

 

Oracles

        1 Peter 4:11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Responsibility committed to us

        1 Timothy 1:11According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

        1 Corinthians 4:1Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.

        2 Corinthians 5:19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

 

Always ready

        Isaiah 50:4The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.
