“For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:6-7).

Bible studies are good things, but unless they are accompanied by maturity, they do not serve their purpose.  We are to grow in faith and just doing the same thing over and over is not growing.  Do not be led astray, nor be led nowhere at all, but into the truth which is found in Christ.  Know that He who saves you has called you to come fully into the truth that makes you free now and forever.

Lord, there is that part which is my responsibility.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go and keep me on that path.  Help me to see that in You alone is all hope and an eternal future.  You have given me these things and I have need to be diligent in applying them in my daily life with the help of the Holy Spirit.  Guide me now and always Lord to follow You and apply what You give me to my life.

Thank You Lord Jesus for the goodness and mercy You give.  You make possible maturity in faith.  Lead me this day to see through those things that will hinder me.  Guide me according to Your grace to live fully today and learn the lesson that is before me.  In You alone do I have all the hope I need.  Lead me in the hope You give to be mature, caring, kind, and loving.  Amen.
