BIBLE STUDY : THE FATHER’S BUSINESS (2)

In Luke’s Gospel chapter 10, after he had sent out 70 of His disciples and amazing miracles took place as they went, Jesus told his disciples not to rejoice about the devils being subject to them in His Name but that their names were written in Heaven. And so they journeyed to Bethany where Martha and her siblings (Mary and Lazarus) were residing. And so when they got there in vs 38, Mary sat at Jesus’ feet to hear His word. She took the posture of a learner and paid attention to the words of Jesus. But Martha was encumbered with so many things. It’s okay to take care of the man of God. It’s okay to be up and doing where the support of a man’s ministry but when it becomes a distraction from the most important thing which Jesus called “my Father’s business” then it is no longer necessary. Christian service ought to be an outflow of our commitment to the study of the Word. True service is learning at His feet. Jesus reprimanded Martha. He said “Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (Lk. 10:41-42).

Therefore, we must imbibe what is more important than the other. That must be part and parcel of our consciousness. Learning Gods word is more important than any other thing in this life. What Martha did that period was genuine and important but that wasn’t what Jesus wanted. But Mary knew what He wanted. You see, Jesus loves it when you sit at his feet learning his word. The best place to be is Church, learning Gods word because doctrines are learnt. They are not stumbled upon. You don’t stumble on understanding.
Usually God gives us men to feed us, to show us. I’m a product of teachers and I keep learning. I often say that there’s a big “L” on my spirit. I’m still learning and I’m a learner for life. What Jesus loves is bible study. You could see that priority of his at age 12. In his ministry work that was his priority and that was why he said to Martha, thou art encumbered with so many things but Mary has chosen a good part. So a good part is bible study.

Learning Gods word is matter of choice nobody can force you to learn Gods word. God never forces anything on anyone. You have to freely receive it. Though salvation is free, you deliberately receive what has been freely given. He said “Mary has chosen a good part which shall not be taken away from her”
They had just finished an evangelistic work and here was Jesus still “feeding” someone who was willing to learn.. Jesus never gets tired of feeding. Do you know how Jesus gets his strength? By feeding. By teaching. He told His disciples when they met Him teaching the woman at the well and they requested that He should eat “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” (Jn. 4:34).

Jesus does not get tired of feeding people spiritually. That’s why He still uses shepherds (pastors) today to feed His flock, the church of the living God. Apostle Peter said, Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock (1 Pet. 5:2-3).
Feed the flock, feed them. It’s the duty of a pastor to feed the flock and it’s the duty of the sheep to show up to be fed. It’s your duty to be there to learn Gods word because the word of God is what the believer needs to understand everything about God. The word of God is what the believer needs to grow up spiritually.

I was with someone recently who told me about his love for the bible. He said “I read my bible to find portions that are applicable to my problems” That was the reason he gave for loving the bible. I responded by telling him that he had an a wrong unscriptural reason for loving the bible. I was blunt...”You are self-centered...” I told him. To which he asked “how do you mean sir?” So I explained to him that what he just said maybe a popular reason some read their bibles and go to church today but it’s absolutely wrong. Some read their bibles today because they want results. We don’t read the bible or learn God’s word so that we can get results (I’m talking about material results here). We read the bible, we study the bible, we show up at bible study so that we can understand God. Because God wants to be understood, he wants you to know him. So that’s why we have bible study to know God. “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (Jn. 17:3) “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life” (1Jn. 5:20).

At this juncture, it is important to reiterate that salvation happened once but we will spend the rest of our lives understanding it. It happened once to you but it will take a lifetime to understand the intricacies of that salvation, this is spiritual growth.

BIBLE STUDY: THE FATHER’S BUSINESS (1)

Bible study ought to be a priority to every believer. A believer should have a bible study culture. The love for the word is intrinsic with salvation. In other words, the new birth instills within us an insatiable desire for the study of the Word. We were created and wired to love the word of God. So how do we know a serious believer? A serious believer is one who responds to that innate desire for the word. “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Pet. 2:2).

He does whatever it takes to understand the word. So to be a serious believer is to take bible study seriously. We must learn to discipline ourselves in the pursuit of bible knowledge. We must respond to that which God has placed inside of us which is the desire for his word. “I have found your word and I did eat them and it has become the joy and the rejoicing of my heart” (Jer. 15:16).

Job in his quest for knowledge obviously did not know as much as he ought to but had an insatiable hunger for the law of the Lord. So in his pursuit for knowledge he said “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12) That talks about priority. The word of the Lord is such that a believer goes after it, he runs after it, he searches it, he goes where it is being taught regularly. He should not at any time be tired of hearing the word.

In Luke 2, Jesus at the age of 12 went with his parents to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover. He was a young man and about the time the Passover was done, of course they had to return back to their base and Jesus was nowhere to be found. They looked for him for 3 days amongst family, friends, relations. They just couldn’t find him. “And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers” (Lk. 2:46-47). The scriptures Jesus knew were not as a result of a supernatural endowment, He learnt them. He listened to the doctors of the law, paid attention to what they taught and asked questions. The bible says they were astonished at his understanding and answers. This meant that He answered them correctly when asked questions based on the information He garnered from them. All these at age 12! Not yet a teenager. Here he was sitting with the doctors of law, interacting with them.

And when His parents found him in the temple, you can only imagine how exasperated they were. His mother said “Son, why have you done this to us? see, your father and I have been looking for you with sorrow..”

Jesus said something amazing. He said, “Why are you looking for me? Don’t you know that I should be about my father’s business?” What was His Father’s business? BIBLE STUDY. The study of the Pentateuch and the books of the prophets. That was what He referred to as His Father’s business. The Father’s business was sitting in the temple and learning the Torah from its teachers. So Jesus as a young man had a fraternity with the word of God. He had a strong acquaintance with the word of God. “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God (Matt. 4:4).
