A mother once gave her son a Bible and wrote these words inside the flyleaf: “This Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this Bible.” How true those words are. When we take the time to study our Bible then we become more focused on living a righteous life before God. The Bible says: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15). We cannot know how to properly divide God’s Word unless we do study. On the other hand if we go about life living for ourselves, not caring about what God’s will for us is, then we will get caught up in sin and serve Satan. Everyone of us holds the key to life not only in this life but in eternity. That key is the Bible. Have you picked up the Bible lately, to study it, so that you will not be ashamed when your final day on this earth comes? Don’t let sin keep you from God’s Word, but rather let God’s Word keep you from Sin!
