Our Helper in Bible Study

Are you asking the Lord to help you understand His Word?

August 10, 2022

1 Corinthians 2:6-16

Have you ever wondered why some people can read the Bible without understanding it? The reason is because it’s God’s revealed Word and to comprehend it requires His wisdom. Those who don’t know Christ have no ability to understand the things of God. But those of us who’ve been saved have the Spirit of God within us; He illumines our mind and teaches us divine truths.

In John 14:16-17, Jesus describes the Holy Spirit as the Helper. The truth is, no matter how spiritually mature or immature we are, we need His assistance every time we open our Bible. He teaches us the true meaning of the text and helps us connect concepts throughout the Word in order to gain greater understanding. Then, as we integrate each truth into our mind and life, He reveals more. The satisfaction and excitement we experience in learning and growing energizes us to keep digging into God’s unfathomable Word. 

To make the most of your time in Scripture, prepare beforehand. Ask the Lord to forgive you of any sin and cleanse your heart. Then request that He open your mind to His truths and give you a teachable and submissive spirit.
