The Desire to Study

A longing to sped time in the Word of God is an entirely natural result of a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit. We have experienced a complete transformation, a new birth into a life where our goal is now to see God's Kingdom in all its glory in the worl we live in.

It should come as no surprise therefore that the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead, who is capable of healing broken bodies and revealing hiddent truth to those who would listen to Him; this same Spirit wishes to re-energise our desire to study the Word of God in order to speak to us more clearly.

The converse is also true. For when we cut ourselves off from Him, turning to our own desires and trying to blot out His call through pre-occupying ourselves with the distractions of the orld - then we see our desire to study diminish.

Recognising this is the first key to returning to full fellowship with Him. For a prospective pastor it is essential that you become sensitive to promptings of this nature; your responsibility is not only to feed yourself, but to study to provide food for those entrusted into your care.
