WHAT is it and WHY is it so powerful?
We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News. This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. - Colossians 1:3-6
When we read God's Word, we should always come expecting to HEAR the LIVING GOD speak to us! When we read anything in God's Word, we are DISCOVERING what part of the the Word He wants to use to teach us something. When He reveals WISDOM, TRUTH, A PROMISE, or SOMETHING ABOUT HIS CHARACTER, He is helping us to IDENTIFY what the treasure is that we discovered. What we DO with the treasure once we've identified it is entirely up to us! We GROW when we decide to APPLY what we learned to our HEART or to our LIFE!
DISCOVER - What is the Bible saying or what is the story about?
IDENTIFY - What is the Bible revealing to you about God?
GROW - How are you going to apply what you learned to your heart or life?

FIRST THINGS FIRST
You can't have a relationship with God unless you understand Jesus' good news!
We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.
Colossians 1:11-14 NLT
