|Staying in the Word|
welcome A letter from Cliff
As Christians strive to live each day for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, what is the one thing that will equip them to reach that God honoring goal? It is the daily practice of "Staying in the Word " (Colossians 3:16). A proper understanding of this critically important issue comes to us from the brother of our Lord when he said, "But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves." This website has been created from the weekly Bible studies which were written and taught over a period of twenty years by Cliff Relyea. To learn more about him, please visit the "about us" page by clicking on this link . For every believer who wishes to honor Christ in their daily walk, the continual study of God's precious word becomes a must. King David said, "Thy word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee" (Psalm 119:11). It is impossible to obey God's word if we do not know it.
All Scriptural references on this website have been taken from the New American Standard Bible unless otherwise noted and it is our prayer that you will be blessed richly for the time you spend here. These studies have all been written with the application of God's word in mind. We should not become satisfied with simply learning what the Bible says, but rather, we should strive together to obey God's inspired instruction to our hearts. To better understand for whom this site has been designed, please visit the Just For You page. If one were to work their way through each of the 160 studies contained within this website, they would have spent three years in the study of God's word. This is a serious call to live a life of devotion to the One who gave His life for the eternal security of our souls. Some of our visitors have asked for our Doctrinal Statement.
