40 Days of Discipline

40 Days of Discipline: Day 10 – Bible Study

5 Comments

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalms 119:103)

The last five days of Bible study were testimony to the fact that God’s word is sweeter than honey.  As a reminder, Saturday is our review day.  Please meditate on the thoughts that have been shared during our Bible study from the Sermon on the Mount.  I would also suggest that you review the comments made on the blog site if you haven’t already had a chance to do so.  I guarantee you that the comments made by your partners on this journey will enrich your experience.

Today’s Request:

If you haven’t already done so, please consider sharing your testimony about what the Bible means to you.

  1. I grew up in a Christian home. The Bible was very much a part of our lives. I remember memorizing Bible passages for fun and competition. As I got older it was something I continued to do because I knew I should. In my 20s I made a decision to seek God, through His word, not for my parents, not because I knew it was right but because I personally wanted to know my Creator, my Savior and my Comforter for myself. My continued reading of the Word continues to reveal more of Him to me and more of who I am in Him.

  2. As I review this week’s study, I am reminded of the power of God’s Word in my life. It acts as a spiritual enzyme that promotes a particular reaction to a particular situation. It is a unique living organism that transcends my comprehension, yet it does not mean that my understanding of it is shrouded in ignorance or blind faith. The Beatitudes (Sermon the Mount) are a spiritual microcosm of what our walk with the Lord should be as the spirit, soul and body are all addressed in one simple, stunning sermon. I find it instructive that the Word of God lends itself to critical analyses/inferences such as deciphering what persons who are not peacemakers are called. If peacemakers are the children of God, whose children are we, then, if we are not peacemakers? Certainly, if we are not the children of God (our heavenly Father), we are the children of “the father of all lies” (and you know who that is!”) : the same one who comes to kill, to steal and to destroy. It’s EITHER OR. There’s no middle ground so the Bible is clear even if it leaves us to draw our own conclusions.

    Apart from guiding me, showing me the Way to eternal life, encouraging me, correcting me, teaching me to love even those who may be considered “unlovable,” and giving me power to overcome, among other things, I find that the Bible allows me to think critically about every sphere of life. It is my spiritual oxygen coming from an inexhaustible Supply. Indeed, it is sweeter than honey & even the honeycomb, and for people like me who can’t have honey or don’t even like to smell it, the taste and fragrance or aroma of God’s Word cannot be compared to honey, though I understand the biblical comparison. Wow! That’s only one of the critical analyses so feel free to counter my claim, and don’t cast the first stone, or even the last one. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. (Matthew 5: 7) . I love you!

  3. “Life’s Perfect Manual”. That’s what the Bible is to me. Enough said. 🙂

  4. Wow! Awesome week of studying Gods word this week. Indeed Gods word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Thank you God for it.! 😍

  5. Wow (stealing from Natasha’s comment)! What a fabulous set of testimonies. Thanks to all of you for sharing.
