Begin study:


Man is on this earth not of his own design or invention, and not even by accident, but by the grace of God.

Man is made out of dust, a life source inserted into something that has no value.

Man has been made lower than the angels, with limited attributes, but master over his environment.

And even with this authority, man cannot gain mastery or control over life of the simplest of the animal kingdoms.

What man is left with is his own soul and with his volition, the potential of commanding his own soul. But there too, man has difficulty in commanding his own thoughts.

With all of these defects and limitations, God still has given man (you) the opportunity to live with Him in heaven, forever, and to inherit the next universe and have an eternal life that is beyond imagination.

What is man? Why give man the time of day let alone an eternal inheritance?

Man has failed miserably throughout history, and certainly throughout each of our individual lives. And yet God, by His grace, has set aside a future that is beyond description.

The psalm opens with the excellence of God, and ends with the excellence of God. It is God first and last and always. Without God man is nothing. Without God man cannot have an existence, let alone a position of authority of any kind.

And that is your life. Without God in it, you are nothing. Your very existence depends on God. He gave you life at the very moment of your birth, and that was a time when you knew nothing and could do nothing. You were helpless in someone else’s arms and totally dependent on others to raise you up.

So too, you are dependent on being raised up by means of doctrine, which is the substance of your life, the means of your completion. Without it, you are nothing but historical filler, and that is not a compliment, nor anything to boast about.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
