GROW THROUGH STUDY: Study is an important part of the process by which we
move closer to imitating Jesus, the model for our lives.


Definition - study is application of the mental faculties to the acquisition of
knowledge. It is not just an intellectual exercise but a discipline and willingness to
inform our desires, emotions, and intuitions about the Christian life. The purpose
of study is to transform our total life through the renewal of our minds (Romans
12:2).

We are either growing or dying. Study helps us continue to grow.

To keep a proper perspective, Christians must study scripture to know God;
we must also study ourselves, others, and the world we live in.


Both obstacles and aids to study exist.

The presenter describes his/her own style of study.

and full participation in God's mission.

nobody.

priority.
