Why to Study (according to Martin Luther)

Image result for martin luther on god's word

My last post was “what do you study.”  This quote from Martin Luther tells us “why we should study.” It is one thing to study the Bible as history or literature and another to read it as a guide for life.  It is one thing to memorize Bible verses and quite another to pray and meditate about them.  It is one thing to know about God and it is something entirely different to know Him.

Study of the scripture is challenging;  it changes us. Why do you study?  How has study changed you?  I hope some of the Lutheran Ladies will blog about these questions.  I hope our readers will comment.
