People do not learn and do not grow in the Christian life, because they try to do things their own way, totally ignoring God’s way of teaching.
You cannot be indifferent, and expect to learn.
You cannot function in the spiritual life, without the words of doctrine.
You cannot lean on the words of doctrine, without the function of the spiritual life.
And all too often, people try to do one without the other, and therefore they fail.
The Bible repeatedly tells people to wake up, to behold, to listen, to turn toward the teaching of the word of God. But you have to do things God’s way, not your own way.
Turn to Gods teaching, means simply that you have to want to learn, and then you have to learn in accordance with how God teaches.
I will pour out my spirit, is a phrase that we should all know. That means you enter into fellowship with God, by means of confession of your sins, and that places the Holy Spirit in control of your soul.
You cannot feel the Holy Spirit, you cannot sense the Holy Spirit, you cannot detect the Holy Spirit.
The things of this physical life cannot gauge the things of the spiritual life. But God promises that when you are in fellowship, then the Holy Spirit will be active and functional for the purpose of channeling spiritual information into your soul. And that is how you legitimately learn.
Jesus Christ is a living person. He is God. He is man. He is the living breathing manifestation of the word. And when you learn Bible doctrine, which is the word, then you effectively bring Christ into your soul.
Bible doctrine learned and incorporated into your soul, is Christ in you.
And all of the emotional nonsense of citing words and phrases, without the real function of the spiritual life, are nothing more than empty comments in an otherwise empty spiritual life.
Every person in this world has the phenomenal opportunity of being saved by believing in Christ.
Every person who has believed in Christ, has the phenomenal opportunity of advancing in their spiritual life, which is advancement in your own meaning and purpose, and relationship with God through Christ.
Bible doctrine is Christ. And to have Christ in you and a relationship with God, you have to learn Bible doctrine. And to learn Bible doctrine, you have to want to learn. And you have to do it in the right way.
A right thing done in the wrong way, is wrong.
A wrong thing done in the right way, is wrong.
A wrong thing done in the wrong way, is obviously wrong.
A right thing has to be done in the right way, in order to be right.
You cannot substitute your method of spirituality, for God’s method.
And I will make my words known to you.
Bible doctrine is learned and known when you are in fellowship, never when you are out of fellowship.
And that simply states that all Bible doctrine is learnable, and knowable, and can be efficacious to the construction of spiritual complex within your soul, and the completion of your life.
Bible doctrine is only a mystery to those who do not approach it correctly.
Truth is ever before us, and is learnable, and is knowable.
But, if you do not end your laziness, and begin following the instruction of a daily study of the word of God, then the failure of your life and lack of understanding, is your fault and no one else’s.
This daily study has been written by me on a daily basis for well over two decades. There are thousands of individual studies available online on the main study web site. They are all freely and easily available. Through these studies you can complete and advance in your life.
And, it does not cost you anything but the movement of your finger onto the links to get each and every study.
Unbelievers fail because they refuse to have a simple thought in their mind, believing in Christ.
Believers fail because they do not make the effort to learn the vast mountain of knowledge that God has provided. They prefer to live in their own delusional world of pretense and phony spirituality.
But this proverb clearly states that if you pursue Gods word, in Gods way, then you will learn and grow and advance in your life.
The only thing preventing you, is you.
