Attending Bible study is first and foremost the best way in answering the call to prepare for the preaching ministry. We know well the story of Moses, who spent 40 years on the back side of the desert before God sent him down to Egypt to free His people.
Moses was in preparation for the call of God. A preacher must know and understand the biblical story of God's salvation history. And the best way to do that is to study Scripture, all 66 books under a good teacher.
This allows the associate to ask biblical questions in a setting where the Spirit of God is working in the heart of the teacher and students. In some settings where the Bible is being taught the teacher presupposes that some aspects of the Bible are just not true.
Maybe they don't believe that the miracles are true, or maybe they believe that Jesus was just a man. What I'm trying to say is that some teachers will be fundamentally flawed.
The student must always, always, always stay attuned to what Spirit of God saying in your heart. The problem of saints being fundamentally flawed in some way is usually found in higher academic circles. However, unbelief can be and will be found in every arena.
While attending bible study go as deep as you can, ask as many questions as arise in your mind. The deeper you study the faster you understand what God has revealed. Year after year as you continue to study God’s word new revelations will be granted you as you grow.
Scripture never failed, never lets you down, never quits on you as long as you maintain faith in what God is showing you.
