Do you study scripture or the teachers you feel are right?
« on: July 11, 2020, 01:24:47 pm »
Acts 17:11 (NIV)
Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.

   The Berean Jews were noted for their noble character because they didn't just take the word of the teacher, in this case, Paul but instead, they studied scripture and compared it to what Paul was saying.  In this study of the word, they believed and grew in number.  They applied themselves to study to examining the words of the teacher. 

Deuteronomy 29:29...The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.





   One word of caution however is found in John...our study and gained knowledge must turn us to Christ, not away from Him.

John 5:39-40...You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,  yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

I try very hard to follow the standard of Jesus that I teach...Acts 7:11

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

I admit I struggle at times practicing what I teach when I teach.  I have always preferred small little circle discussions.  I prefer to be the one to question everything just to force uncomfortable discussions at times.  I find this teaches much better.  I also find being Socratic in method can help many find their own way.
Say each prayer as if it is your very last conversation with God and live each day as your last day to glorify God by your actions and words.

sounds like a good way Mark,,,,Since I don't have a pulpit, I usually simply get questions. Then one thing leads to another and you have a full conversation. In my case, one has to be careful how you answer the questions so as not to offend those asking the questions. sometimes, it is very easy to do just that.

I know no one asked me, but I agree with PJ, studying scripture is the only way to really know what God wants us to know...to study the teachers, can sometimes open up our understanding but it is the HS that teaches us and scripture is the "textbook" so to speak that God gave us when learning from the HS.
