Why should we be motivated to study and learn? We need first to have the right motivation as to why should you study and read? Many a good man has fallen prey to false compulsions and thus has lost the real or full benefit of ongoing study. For one thing, your continuing study should not be motivated by the desire to gain a certain prestige. . . . Don't fall prey to that. The goal of learning is knowledge, not a status. . . .But at the same time, sharing what you know is immense helpful to others.
Maybe you'll become an expert in the Puritans, like J.I. Packer, not only so that you can be edified through that excellent material, but also so that you can disillusion others of the considerable and negative mythology which encompasses this whole field of study, and introduce ministers and other Christians to the goldmine to be found in those writings. You get my point. Be motivated to learn in order that your learning may bless the bigger body of Christ.
So my e mail is if you have learned some new ideas, doctrine, theology, health, church ministry, etc. please share. And thanks
Thus, why should we investigate and learn, and comprehend? For God's glory, for our growth inthe knowledge of His truth, for the blessing of the church, and to be an encouragement to other ministers and teachers . There are definitely more incentives to study than these. But take these as meaningful .idea for you to share what the Lord has laid on your heart to learn.
