  • We all have a propensity to deceive ourselves, which is why we need the objective truth of the Scripture to help us navigate life.

  • Becoming intimately familiar with God’s Word takes time, practice, repetition, and commitment.

  • Understanding the context of the Bible takes work. We should invest in studying the time and culture of Scripture’s original audience.
