(St. John 8:31-32 KJV) “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
The second sign of a disciple of Christ is you must become a student of God’s word. In fact, you must consistently study the word of God. We must continue in God’s word is what the scripture says; thus, there are no days off from reading the word. A disciple of Christ must study on good days, bad days and on those days where he/she feels somewhere in-between. We must study whether we feel like it or not; even if we have other things to do, because we always do, we must make time for God. As Disciples of Christ in order to be free, we must know the truth and in order to know the truth, we must know what God’s word says and apply it to our lives with skill. It is also equally important to not only know the truth, but we must live the truth which we know; it must be exemplified in our lifestyles. As Disciples of Christ we must know the truth because your enemy certainly knows God’s word, he’s just not into obeying it. Therefore, as you study your bible… read it out-write it down-pray it in and work it out and the truth will come alive in your heart.
God Bless You
