Understand the Bible

1 Corinthians 2: 12-16

"I just don't understand the Bible." This is a comment that I often hear from believers. We can understand why those without Christ are unable to understand biblical concepts, but why do those who know Him struggle? Some people think seminars are the answer, but I've met several trained pastors and teachers who didn't really understand the Word of God. They knew facts, but they had no excitement for Scripture or for the Lord.

The key is not education, but obedience. When we act on what we read, the Holy Book comes to life and we begin to hear and understand the voice of God. However, if we have not obeyed what he revealed to us before, why should he give us his deeper truths? “The mystery of the Lord is for those who fear him” (Ps 25:14), and those who fear him are those who keep his commandments and who are promised “good understanding” (Ps 111:10).

A carnal lifestyle of disobedience to the Lord tarnishes our eyes, diminishes our hearing, and tarnishes our thinking. Although we have full access to the Spirit of Christ, our commitment to our own sinful ways prevents us from unlocking the rich treasures of wisdom found in His Word.

Pay attention to God's instructions as you read the scriptures daily. Then commit to relying on the Holy Spirit to do what He tells you to do. If you obey his voice, he will reveal deeper truths and your understanding will grow. Soon your time in the Word will be a joy instead of a duty.
