4 Ways to Avoid Taking for Granted the Word

• Don’t let it become Common.

It becomes common from attitudes that we hold:

"Consider carefully how you listen, ‘to the Word’."
o Unbelief
o Superficial Mind

• Read the Bible Daily.

"The Scriptures shall be his constant companion. He must read from it everyday of his life so that he will learn to respect the Lord, his God, by obeying all of his commands." Deuteronomy 17:19

"If you continue in my Word then you are my disciples indeed. And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:31

• Study Scripture Regularly.

"They accepted the message eagerly and studied the Scripture every day." Acts 17:11

• Memorize Scripture.

"Guard my words as your most precious possession. Write them down, and also keep them within your heart." Proverbs 7:2-3
