When my granddaughter Lydia was smaller she had a routine that involved watching the same TV programs every evening and singing the same bedtime song every night.
She loved this and it was reassuring for her and gave her some routine; repetition was good for her.
Repetition in terms of looking at the same passages of Scripture is good for the born again believer.
It is an understanding of the Word that leads to lasting and permanent change in the life of a Christian.
Paul wrote to Titus saying he should “affirm constantly” the faithful sayings he had been taught about his righteousness through Jesus.
Even though we think we know a Biblical principle (such as righteousness or forgiveness) we should affirm these truths constantly and remind ourselves about them again and again.
As a pastor and teacher I have taken this advice from Paul to Titus (also a pastor) to heart, just ask my fellowship.
But it is not wrong to teach the same truths again and again; this is what Paul is telling us to do.
So if pastors are being told to teach the same truths constantly surely we as believers reading the Word should remind our selves of the same truths again and again as well.
What is your favourite truth about who you are in Christ?
Whatever it is, why not go and study up about it again right now!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you for your Word Lord and thank you that it is the agent for lasting and permanent change in my life”.
Titus 3 v 8…..This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men
