Many believers neglect studying the Bible because they don't understand how beneficial it is for them. Paul told Timothy the main purpose of diligent study of the scriptures is this. It reveals to you that you are approved, accepted, and loved by God the Father. Then you become a workman who will never need to be ashamed, because someone who is loved approved and accepted by God won't be ashamed. And that will grow you into a person who rightly divides the Word of Truth. Your own personal time in God's word creates a virtuous cycle where you share the truth with others so they too come to understand how approved, accepted, and loved by God they are as well. The key is making Bible study a priority in your life.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.— 2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV)
