Hosea 4:6 (NASB) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.Never stop learning! Growth and maturity come through various types of knowledge. Whether you read it in a book, pick it up in a class, or experience it by trying new things, knowledge is imperative to growth. If you apply the knowledge to your life, you will gain wisdom. You will find out what works and what doesn’t. The best part about knowledge is that no man can ever take it from you. Once you’ve learned it, it’s yours.
The greatest knowledge we can ever hope to attain is that of God. There is so much we can learn from Him, about Him and through Him. In His Word are so many wondrous things that we have yet to grasp. We have to come to Him, admitting that we know nothing aside from what He allows us to know. We must pray to Him with our hearts open to receive whatever He would impart into our spirits at that time.For those of us claiming to belong to God, we have the best teacher in the entire world: the Spirit of God. We have no excuse for why we don’t study God’s Word. There are translations for just about anyone to understand, there are audio and video Bibles, and numerous scholars have developed excellent study tools to assist us in learning the “law of God”. We can’t rely on a sermon once a week to give us everything we need to know God.
You have a responsibility as a child of God to know Him for yourself. What better way than to gain that knowledge from His Word?
