The other reason is that the Bible talks about in the last days there will be a lot of deception going around. People are going to go around speaking false truths and convincing Christians and mad people to believe these lies. One common thing that I've heard is that there is this mother that we are supposed to worship. And the thing is some of these groups will twist the Bible to make it work for them. So, you really need to know the word. When you know the word, you will be able to know what is true. A favorite verse of mine goes perfect with this idea. 2 Timothy 2:15 says "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.". As a Christian, we can use the Bible to check any preacher that we can hear. In addition, we can use it to know what's right and what's wrong. We have to study the word so we can divide what we hear to be either right or wrong.
We should have a desire to want to know God. We should want to know His Word and His presence. Just as our guest blogger, Shamar, said, we need to know God. And the way to know God is through his word. And Hannah also said that we need I develop our relationship but the only way to do that is to know His word because that is how you will know who God is.
So, I encourage you this week and for the future to continue to seek God through His word. Get a desire to know God. Study His word. Let His word be hid in your heart, so you won't sin against Him, like David said.
