Bible In One Year: Daniel 7-8, 1 John 5


In His letter to the church at Smyrna, the Lord said He was aware of their poverty, yet they were rich. This could mean several things. It could mean that they were impoverished because they did not know that they were rich. In any case ignorance was a crucial factor. Even today, many believers are living below Heaven’s level of provision because they do not know what is due to them. Hence Hosea 4:6 says many are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

The Word of God contains virtually all truths to guide us into success in every area of life, but how many people devote time to study the Bible and internalise it? Knowledge is power. Knowledge is a key to life. The more of it you have, the more you can get out of life. Anyone who refuses to acquire knowledge is only limiting what he or she can get from life. What you don’t know can kill you; have you learnt all you need to know to achieve your spiritual, financial and academic goals?

Key Point: The more you know, the less limited you become. In all your getting get wisdom.

Hymn 9:

1. I am so glad that our Father in heaven
Tells of His love in the book He has given;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see;
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.

I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus love me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.

2. Though I forget Him and wander away,
Still He doth love me whenever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms would I flee,
When I remember that Jesus loves me.

3. Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me.”
