If you are not regularly creating a margin in your schedule to study the Scriptures, you are not fully developing in Jesus. This culture gives you too many messages all week to have one sermon and one Bible study a week to keep you grounded in the truth.
It takes a person out of touch with reality to say that one’s sins do not affect others. Our sins can quickly devastate those around us, especially when our anger leads us to justify our words and actions.
Books constantly need revision because of outdated references or incorrect information, but the Bible’s message needs no update. God’s Word endures forever, and we should develop our worldview from something with such staying power.
We often speak of the individualized side of following Jesus to warn others from a false belief of inheriting the benefits of another’s devotion, but we also miss something. One Christian’s growth should help build the rest of us up.
