Are you letting the “cares of this life” keep you from studying God’s Word? We as a church often read this verse (Lk.21:34) and think it cannot apply to us because it begins with carousing and drunkenness, thus skimming over the “cares of this life” that really do consume our time. Born-again Christians, just thirty years ago, had set priorities that overruled time spent with friends and even family birthdays if it coincided with God’s time, like Bible study, going to church for Sunday and Wednesday services and even week long revivals that came to town. Today, most (not all) find it difficult to go to church on the weekend let alone attend a Bible study during the week. Yes, I know this is prophesied to happen, but let me caution you on a personal level, it’s not a good thing! Why not be part of the remnant who desire to know the deeper truths of God. Only through study can you achieve this. Join a good verse by verse Bible study and cut into the meat of His Word. Since Jesus says He is the “Spirit of Prophecy” (Rev.19:10) try a book of one of the prophets. Shofar Assembly conducts a twice a month study (can also listen to archived radio programs for those who live too far)and can help you understand some of the more difficult passages. After awhile those difficult areas will seem like eating apple pie. Of course, there will always be more steak to chew on. Heb.5:12-14 tells us we need solid food if we want to discern between good and evil. And since the prophesy of Isaiah 5:20 is now in full force, spiritual maturity is a must in these last days. So wake up and put God first on your priority list. There will always be another birthday or family function to attend or a sale you think you can’t pass up. And lastly, you can’t be an effective witness without total sanctification that can only come through studying His Word. And that’s a fact, church. 1Thes.5:23***
