The Most Essential Tool

Top  Previous  Next

The most essential Bible study tool is an open and willing mind. Without this most important tool we will never profit from our study; no matter how much we may learn, our Bible study will be of no benefit to us if we are not willing to be changed by it. We must be willing to be taught when ever we approach the Bible, allowing it to change our minds and be an instrument of change in our lives rather than bending it to support our own preconceived ideas. The word of God possesses great power but only if it is studied honestly and with a willingness to allow God to speak through it to us. As we read the Bible we must be constantly thinking of what the Bible is telling us, not what we want to be telling it.
