Why We Study God’s Word

Why do we do what we do? What’s our motivation?

We can study God’s Word to find self-help, cherry-picking what we think most helps and affirms us.

We can study God’s Word to check it off our legalistic faith checklist.

We can study God’s Word to alleviate our guilt or build our credibility.

We can study God’s Word for ammunition for what we what to prove or disprove.

Or we can study God’s Word to pursue God.

After all, His Word is a lot more about Him than us. He gifts us and reveals Himself through His Word.
