Psalm 119:9-16

9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.10I seek you with all my heart;do not let me stray from your commands.11I have hidden your word in my heartthat I might not sin against you.12Praise be to you, O Lord;teach me your decrees.13With my lips I recountall the laws that come from your mouth.14I rejoice in following your statutesas one rejoices in great riches.15I meditate on your preceptsand consider your ways.16I delight in your decrees;I will not neglect your word.

Helpful Attitudes For Bible Study

What kind of person makes a good Bible student? Here are some attitudes to emulate to assist you in becoming a good student of God’s Word:

  • Spiritually hungry – Jesus said we are blessed if we hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6).

  • Receptive to God’s truth – we need to be open-minded and yielded in our spirit to hear God’s truth fully.

  • Devoted – studying the Bible will require time and effort. It is not easy.

  • Obedient – when God reveals truth to us, we need to implement it right away.

  • Disciplined – making time for study will require strong will and diligence to the process of learning. It is like learning any other difficult skill. However, just like a trained pianist is “free” to play the piano, we can also be “free” to live the life God has planned for us.
