So You Want To Study The Bible?
That's awesome. There is no better habit to develop then to dig into the Scriptures and study God's Word. Bible reading will bring you joy, peace, happiness and wisdom. It will give you strength during rotten times, and it will help you to resist the temptations of sin that are meant to destroy you. Oh yes, Bible study isn't just a nice thing to do that will make your mom happy - this is a matter of life and death. It's the difference between the abundant life that Jesus offers you, and the miserable life that Satan wants to trick you into living.
Hopefully you aren't dumb enough to believe Satan's lie - "you'll have plenty of time when you are older to be a good christian - for now just have fun - just enjoy life!". That's what he tells you. To live life to the fullest (in sin) now, and to be a boring Christian when you are an old foggie. NOTHING could be further from the truth. Christianity is meant to be exciting and Bible study brings much of that excitement. As a student you are at the best age to strengthen and grow your relationship with God through the study of His Word. You aren't too young to start!

I hope that you get as excited about Bible study as I am. God bless you as you study!

Bible Advice: Be A Squirrel!
The Word of God is always most precious to the man who most lives upon it. The English Preacher C. H. Spurgeon recalled a time when God showed Him how to make the Word of God more precious to Him, and he wrote "As I sat last year under a wide-spreading beech, admiring that most wonderful of trees, I thought to myself, I do not think half as much of this beech tree as the squirrel does. I see him leap from bough to bough, and I feel sure that he dearly values the old beech tree, because he has his home somewhere inside it in a hollow place, these branches are his shelter, and those beech-nuts are his food. He lives upon the tree. It is his world, his playground, his granary, his home; indeed, it is everything to him, and it is not so to me, for I find my rest and food elsewhere. With God's Word it is well for us to be like squirrels, living in it and living on it. Let us exercise our minds by leaping from bough to bough of it, find our rest and food in it, and make it our all in all. We shall be the people that get the profit out of it if we make it to be our food, our medicine, our treasury, our armory, our rest, our delight. May the Holy Spirit lead us to do this and make the Word thus precious to our souls."
