The ladies Bible study at my church just started up for a new season. As we began to dive into our study my pastor encouraged all of the ladies to get a grip on the Word. Pastor asked if we could pick up our Bibles with one finger or two or three. Then he shared an illustration of a hand holding a Bible. Each finger represented one aspect of how to get a grip on the Word.
The fingers represent hear, read, study, memorize and meditate.
These disciplines ensure that we will have a solid grip on God’s Word. Do you and I have a weak grip or a strong grip? Where might you have to get a firmer grip? When you and I take full advantage of these disciplines our grip will be stronger than ever!
