Take Ownership

If you want to "go deeper" then "go deeper" (what's stopping YOU) and if you want to get to know the Bible better then you have to read it. These simple words were spoken by a minister in Virginia at the church that Polly and I attended. Those words have stuck with me ever since I first heard them. I have heard from people over the years that they wished Sunday School or Preachers would go deeper into the word on Sundays. I have come to the conclusion that it is my responsibility as a Christian to take ownership of my Bible Study and Bible knowledge. I shouldn't count on a sermon, blog, teacher, etc. to help me go deep and truly learn the Bible. I have to say "I OWN THIS" and put my best foot forward and study the word daily and I don't mean a casual glance but a real "deep" study of God's Word. So I challenge you as I have challenged myself to "GO DEEP". I am attempting to make the Bible not just something I read because I should but because I desire a DEEPER relationship with God. No preaching and/or teaching could ever Deepen your relationship with Him more,than you spending quality time in His word.

I close with one of my favorite sayings and I hope it encourages you to take ownership and go deeper in your study of God's word...

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”

Go Deep, the only thing truly standing in your way is YOU !
