Ashamed bible thoughts , rants  

Somehow I stumbled onto a very sad website (http://www.skepticsannotatedbible.com/). I suggest you go there (if you are a grounded believer in Christ) to see how Satan is fighting the Word of God.

Yet I am not writing this blog to comment on what a wicked website I found, but how wicked I really am. It is no secret that I read the Bible—I even study it (2 Timothy 2:15). (Not many Christians can say they do more than read through their Bible-in-a-year program; I do not say that to mock. If we love the Lord, we want to be in His Word!) This blog, however, is about how ashamed I am of my study of the Bible. I am a Christian. I am a child of God! Yet I hardly know His Word. There is a song that says quite well what we need to hear, “I want to know You more.”

The fact is, we can only know Him better by learning His Word.

The Bible says, (Psalm 119:165-168 NASB) “Those who love Thy law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble. {166} I hope for Thy salvation, O LORD, And do Thy commandments. {167} My soul keeps Thy testimonies, And I love them exceedingly. {168} I keep Thy precepts and Thy testimonies, For all my ways are before Thee.”

To love God’s law one must know it; to keep God’s commandments one must know them. If we want great peace, let us keep God’s precepts and His testimonies. Let us know Him more.
