In modern parlance, we use the word “student” euphemistically of kids in school. We’ll call the whole class “students” when in fact, some are, and some are not. Some are there to learn and some are there because they haven’t figured out how they can be somewhere else. A “student” is one who studies, a scholar, a learner. In a perfect world, every child in school would be a student, but we don’t live in a perfect world.
The same could be said about Christians. Every Christian should be a student of the Word. However, to call every Christian a student of the Word would be a stretch. Some are, and some are not. A student of the Word would be one who reads it regularly, who studies it, who desires to learn from it, who finds life lessons and applies them. That’s a student of the Word. Are you a student of the Word?
