Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NLT)
hat is the goal of studying the Bible? Is it to have knowledge so we can argue with others that think differently from us? Is it so we can pass some type of test? The ultimate goal is for the Bible to transform us. The only way God’s Word can transform us is if we live what we have learned. Transformation takes place when we put into practice the truth that we have learned. To live the truth is to submit to Biblical truth. This is not easy and very difficult, if not impossible, to do on our own. We can only do it through the strength that Christ gives us. If we ask for strength to live according to the Bible, Christ will supply it.
