The door of the Word can only opened with the key of diligence!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“Search the Scriptures!” John 5:39

The Greek word here rendered “search” signifies a strict, close, diligent, thorough search–such as men make when they are seeking gold. We must not rest content with having given a superficial reading to a chapter or two, but with the candle of the Spirit, we must deliberately seek out the spiritual essence of the Word. Holy Scripture requires searching–much of it can only be learned by careful study. There is milk for babes, but also meat for strong men.

No man who merely skims the book of God, can profit from it. We must dig and mine, until we obtain the hidden treasure. The door of the Word can only opened with the key of diligence! The Scriptures warrant searching. They are the writings of God–we dare to treat them with levity. He who despises them–despises the God who wrote them. God forbid that any of us should leave our Bibles to become swift witnesses against us in the great day of account. The Word of God will repay searching. Scripture grows upon the student. It is full of wonders!

The Scriptures reveal Jesus: “These very Scriptures speak about Me!” No more powerful motive can be urged upon Bible readers than this: He who finds Jesus finds life, Heaven, all things. Happy is he who, searching his Bible, discovers his Savior!

“My son, if you accept My words and store up My commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure–then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:1-5

  1. Reblogged this on Faithful Steward Ministries and FSM Women's Outreach and commented:
    Jesus spent three years teaching the Apostles including Paul (See Galatians 1:11–24) how long should we spend in the word before we are ready to minister with it in some manner even to ourselves?

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
