A Thought for Today July 11, 2018

“Don’t Take My Word For It”
 
As a pastor, I am glad when people believe what I teach and preach.
 
Now if what I teach and preach is truth, this is great.
 
However, what would happen if I were a false teacher?
Would people believe what I say?
 
Unfortunately, many would.
 
So how can we be sure that our pastors are preaching and teaching truth?
 
Please read the following verses.
Acts 17:10-12
10 As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue.
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.
12 Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.
 
even though I am glad that people believe what I preach and teach, I want them to see the truth for themselves.
 
We just returned from our denominations Annual Conference. In this conference, the delegates sit around tables discussing the issues at hand.
 
 
One man said that at his table, the people knew very little scripture.
 
How sad.
It would appear they are not in God’s Word daily learning from the Lord God.
 
Don’t blindly follow some teacher or religious leader.
Go to the Word and make sure your leader is teaching the Word.
 
Don’t take my or their word for it………
