Thursday Feb. 10, 2011 Lev. 13 & 14 Acts. 17 "It's a Match"

Thursday Feb. 10, 2011
Lev. 13 & 14 Acts. 17
"It's a Match"
S-Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

O-Paul & Silus were sent to Berean to the Jewish Synagogue to preach the good news. Where ever they went, some listened to what they had to say, and some didn't. Some even mocked them and criticized them. The Berean's they got their scriptures and compared what Paul & Silas were saying to what the scriptures said, and found it to be true.

A- The Berean's were the smart people, and they had great character. They weren't rude to Silus & Paul, and didn't challenge them to what they were saying, or judge them. They took what they were saying to the scriptures, and compared the message their were preaching to that. They found it to be true. Some times we do that too. We listen to what someone else is telling us about something and we believe it. Sometimes even about people. God wants us to take the messages we receive and compare them to His word. He also wants us to take what people say about someone and line it up with their character, and the truth of what you know about that person. You can't believe everything you's best to be a leader and know the truth, then to be a follower and follow what someone else believes.

P-Father, take me into your word even more. Give me a hunger to devour your word daily, and to know the truth of what your word says. You give us a lifetime to learn and read your word, let me not waste a day of learning and having the opportunity to know the truth so the truth sets me free. Help me to be the best leader of spreading your truth and knowing your word, and not relying on someone else's interpretation or opinion. Amen
