All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Usually a nerd is stereo-typically portrayed as someone who is a lover of bugs, who is studying, and wearing thick glasses and pocket protectors. This is an unfair and wrong assumption. Being a nerd is nothing to shy away from, or to be embarrassed about. The dictionary defines a nerd as a single-minded expert in a particular, technical field.
I want to be a Bible nerd, a Bible expert, and not for vanity or pride, but to learn about the Father, and how to survive living on His earth, with His creations. We have to devote time to Bible reading; becoming an expert won't happen on wishing alone. It takes effort and commitment, but comes with the reward of learning how God ticks, and how He wants you and me to live. God wants all of us to be Bible nerds.
Lord, Show me how to have one-on-one time with You. Show me how to embrace being a Bible nerd. Let it be enjoyable and eye-opening, and not another chore. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
