Editor’s Note: Most people are facing something big and need God’s help. If you don’t; ask around. I wanted to write to you about the CRITICAL IMPORTANCE of reading the bible every day for at least 30 minutes to an hour. I believe this is a key to the Open Door. I found this article written by Gene McGuire and I couldn’t have expressed it better)

BY GENE MCGUIRE…

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God. . . .rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)

COMMENT: Have you ever taken something for granted and then after a period of time your eyes are opened to a deeper understanding? Well, that happened to me the other day. You probably have been aware of what I am about to mention, but it took me 70 years to clearly see the obvious. What I’m talking about is a part of speech called a “contraction”. For all these years I never gave a second thought as to why that name was given to those particular words; it was just another word like a noun, adjective, pronoun, etc. I knew one when I saw one or used one. About a month ago, it finally dawned on me that the word “contraction” means to make smaller and that is what happens when we take two words, eliminate one or more letters and replace the missing letter(s) with an apostrophe. Now, of course, my failure to be fully aware of that concept is not very important to my life in the natural, however the same lack of cognition in spiritual matters could be very detrimental. I’ve heard some people say that they’ve read the Bible once, cover to cover, and truly believe that they’ve gotten out of it all it had to offer. NOT. There are deeper meanings in the Scriptures that only come to us by studying and meditating on God’s Word. A cursory examination of it is definitely insufficient because the Scriptures contain “acres of diamonds” that can be continually ”mined” by conscientious Christians.

SCRIPTURE STUDY: Psalms 119:130 and Hebrews 4:12

WISE SAYING: KNOW THE WORD, BE NOT DECEIVED. YOUR IGNORANCE COULD LEAVE YOU GRIEVED. (gene mcguire)
