Study. Studying the word of God, rightly divided, is the key to understanding the dispensational differences between callings. Right Division is the instruction to Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” The word “study” implies a serious commitment and obligation on behalf of the saint to take time and learn the scriptures. This is how you lay the proper foundation to be able to “compare the things that differ” which is one of the Internal Laws of proper Biblical interpretation. A.S.K. is a term that stands for Ask, Seek, and Knock. This is what the christian should do daily. Why should one study? All of scripture is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. Further, the entire subject of scripture focuses in on the Savior of all mankind, Christ Jesus. Christ is the only mediator between God and man. We learn more of the mind of Christ as we put His word in our hearts and mind. Someone once said, you have to have His word in your head before it works it way down to your heart. Head knowledge with prayer and fellowship becomes a heart knowledge for the Lord. John 5:39 (KJV) tells us to “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” We know that faith comes by hearing the word of God. The lesson on 09-01-2002 focuses in on the aspect of christian “study” and how it prepares us for the day to day walk we share as members in the Body of Christ.
