Studying Can Impact Others

Dayspring Christian Academy teaches students to reason from Biblical principles and apply them to every area of life. One way we do this is through the 4R method – Research, Reason, Relate, Record. The following essay is a result of this informative and transformative methodology. Jaylani wrote this piece as a concluding assignment for a 4R biblical word study on the word study in our sixth grade Study Skills class.

Study is a word I use a lot, but I never took time to realize what it really means. To me, studying means: to take the time to understand, learn to understand what God has to say.

As I studied the word study, I realized something, something I was doing wrong. I was all caught up in getting good grades that I forgot who I was doing it for.

When I read Colossians 3:23 and 3:17 it reminded me that I am working hard to get good grades for God and only Him. I learn so I can be able to share the Gospel, whether it is through books I write or being in the medical field telling people about God.

Saving people in more than one way (physical and spiritual) is how I want to live. I want to be more than I think I can be. I want to be everything God made me to be so that’s why I study.
