Bible Texts: Dan.9:2, Jn.5:39, Rom.8:1, Pro.23:23
One of the greatest heritages that God has given to you and I is His word, captured in the Bible. But you and I cannot be greater and better than who we are and what we do except we study the Bible and other anointed books. This is why after today’s teaching, you must make a commitment to study in order to destroy ignorance and walk in the light of the truth as you relate with your wife and children.

But how do you engage the power of books? The first step is to be born again by having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This demands that you leave your old ways of sin and unrighteousness and walk in truth and righteousness (Jn.3:4-9). Secondly, you must have and live a concentrated life (Rom.8:1, 2Cor.5:17). Thirdly, you must engage the power of the Holy Ghost to empower you with the reading grace. Fourthly, you must develop a reading plan and invest in buying books. The word of God says, buy the truth and sell it not…(Pro.23:23). Finally, ask the Person of the Holy Spirit to give you seeing eyes and hearing ears.
