  • The Word of God is essential to my closeness with God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 // “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

  • Lack of Understanding
  • Optional Thinking
  • Sin
  • Fear
Mark God’s Word 

Hebrews 4:12 //  For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

  • God’s Word is to be marked in the highest regard.
Memorize God’s Word 

Psalm 119:11 // I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

  • God’s Word is to be memorized in our head, but hidden in our heart.
Meditate on God’s Word

Psalm 1:1-2 // Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.

  • God’s Word is to be meditated on day and night.
