REASON #2 - Sunday School Is Important Because God’s Word Is Being Studied And Taught
But if you keep looking steadily into God’s perfect law - the law that sets you free - and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. (James 1:25)
The American Bible Society says that 90% of all Americans own a Bible. They also say that fewer than 20% read their Bible on a regular basis. And, fewer than 10% have a good working knowledge of the Bible and how to apply its lessons to their day-to-day lives.
It’s certainly important for everyone to own a Bible, and it’s important to read your Bible. (We think you should read it every day!) But it’s really that last statistic – that fewer than 10% of all people in America really understand the Bible and how to apply its messages to their daily lives - that should concern each of us.
The Bible is our “handbook for life” and a roadmap for our daily walk with Jesus Christ. But, if you don’t understand what you are reading and if you don’t know how to apply its messages and lessons to your daily life, is it really doing you much good?
Even in today’s modern translation forms, the Bible is often quite hard to understand. And, often when people start searching for answers to a particular problem or concern in the Bible, they have no idea where to look. That’s why it’s so important to come together with others in Sunday school to “dig in” to God’s Word and to work together to find the answers that are there, waiting for you to discover.
Questions To Think About: Do you read the Bible every day? Do you have a “good working knowledge of the Bible and how to apply its messages to your daily life?”
Prayer Suggestion: Pray for the teachers of your Sunday school and church.
A Call To Action: Add a favorite Bible verse to one of the messages that you send today on social media.
