(May 26/27) Keep Learning! -- meditation on Psalm 119:18
"Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law." Psalm 119:18
One of my favorite things about attending church on Sunday morning is seeing our senior adults engaging in Bible study and eagerly listening as the Word of God is preached. Many of these blessed saints have been believers for longer than I have been alive and yet they are anxious to learn more about the Bible.
Charles Spurgeon once said, “Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.”
The more we learn about the Lord the more we realize there is so much more to know. God is inexhaustible, meaning, we will never learn all there is to know. We can certainly know the Lord truly, but not fully. He is greater than we imagine and grander than we can fathom. We simply can never exhaust all there is to learn about our God nor can we ever arrive to a place where studying the Scripture yields no more fruit.
So, it is fitting for us to open our Bibles each day and ask the Lord to teach us. It is right for us to gather with our brothers and sisters in Christ each Lord's Day and ask the Spirit to teach us great and unsearchable things that we do not know.
A man in Kansas City was severely injured in an explosion. Evangelist Robert L. Sumner tells about him in his book The Wonders of the Word of God. The victim’s face was badly disfigured, and he lost his eyesight as well as both hands. He was just a new Christian, and one of his greatest disappointments was that he could no longer read the Bible. Then he heard about a lady in England who read Braille with her lips. Hoping to do the same, he sent for some books of the Bible in Braille. Much to his dismay, however, he discovered that the nerve endings in his lips had been destroyed by the explosion. One day, as he brought one of the Braille pages to his lips, his tongue happened to touch a few of the raised characters and he could feel them. Like a flash he thought, I can read the Bible using my tongue. At the time Robert Sumner wrote his book, the man had “read” through the entire Bible four times.
Let us continue to come to the Bible day after day with humble hearts. Every single day is a new opportunity to learn, worship, and grow in our personal relationship with our Savior. Have you stopped to read His Word today? If not, why not pick up the Bible even now and learn more about the Lord?
