Do we really love the Word of God ?

Do we really love the Word of God ?

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

There was a time when I read the Bible to see what it teaches, if what it says is true. To see what it reveals about God, about salvation, about the angels, about God's laws, about prophecy, or in short to see what it reveals.Basically the Bible was my teacher and in my guide. Then I learned that I need the Holy Spirit to understand and apply the Word of God.

Then somehow I had this lackadaisical attitude toward it , before I knew it I was using it for debate and support my pet doctrines. I was using it to support myself instead of letting it nourish my soul.

I wonder if the Bible doctrines become subservient to what feels good to us,to what is convenient to us ? Each one of us needs to answer this for our own.

Could it be we lost our first love ? By my own admission I lost my first love, so please pray for me so I would or God would rekindle my love for His word.

Such wisdom, brother!  So often we pull out pieces and rearrange them into our own patterns, making a patchwork quilt out of a garment that was whole.  Do we treat it respectfully?  No.  Do we honor that there is Life in the Words? No.  We kill it as we kill ourselves.  Thank you for this reminder!  Be blessed, Peggy

"And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"
II Thess 2:10-11

The Truth is His and the Love is His. If we will not receive them as He gives them to us and use them in His Way, then they are perverted to our own ways. Then we no longer have His love for His Truth and then He will send us a strong delusion and we will believe a lie.

But... it does not need to be like that. All we need to do is ask Him again from our hearts for His help, He will not refuse.

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matt 7:7-8
