Before You Start Your Bible Study
As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, be sure that you have named
all your known sins privately to God through the use of 1 John 1:9
so that you will be in fellowship, under the control of the indwelling
Holy Spirit, and ready to learn doctrine in the Word of God.
If you are an unbeliever, the issue is not naming your sins. The issue
is faith in Christ: "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of
God abideth on him" (John3:36).
"I will establish My covenant with you:.. neither shall there any more be
a flood to destroy the earth."
Dear Lord, help me to build on a firm foundation, learning to
diligently seek Thy direction in all I do.
