Hungering for God’s Word [Part 2] With Bishop Nelson Nzvimbo

What the Bible Says About God’s Word
Bible authors describe God’s Word as a light, a guide, and the source of all true wisdom:


“From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16).
“Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).
“They received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).
“For whatever things were written before were writtenfor our learning, that we through the patience and the comfort of the Scriptures might have hope” (Rom. 15:4).

“Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law” (Ps. 119:18).

“I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation” (Ps. 119:99).

“How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Ps. 119:103).
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Ps. 119:105).
Be Revived by His Word
Revival and Bible study and prayer always happen in concert with each other. This was true at Pentecost, at the Reformation, and during the Second Advent Movement. It will also be true when the Holy Spirit is poured out in latter rain power.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether” (Ps. 19:7-9).
“A revival in Bible study is needed. Attention is to be called, not to the opinions of men, but to the Word of God. As this is done, a mighty work will be wrought”

Studying God’s Word
As you read its pages, The Bible will come alive and you’ll discover inspiration and practical tools to help you in your day to day life. Take time to look up each reference cited. Pray in the words of the Psalmist: “Revive me, O Lord, according to your word” (Ps. 119:107).

“[The] Lord has preserved this Holy Book by His own miraculous power in its present shape—a chart or guidebook to the human family to show them the way to heaven”

“There is nothing more calculated to strengthen the intellect than the study of the Scriptures. No other book is so potent to elevate the thoughts, to give vigor to the faculties, as the broad, enabling truths of the Bible. If God’s Word were studied as it should be, men would have a breadth of mind, a nobility of character, and a stability of purpose rarely seen in these times”
“No other book, no other study, can equal this; the principles it instills, like the power and nature of its Author, are omnipotent. It is capable of imparting the highest education to which the mortal mind can attain”
“We should day by day study the Bible diligently, weighing every thought and comparing scripture with scripture. With divine help we are to form our opinions for ourselves as we are to answer for ourselves before God”

Let's all cry for the true revival as the Psalmist said, “Revive me, O Lord, according to your word” (Ps. 119:107).
