“Jesus replied, ‘Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?’” Mark 12:24.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Job 23-24, and Mark 11-12.
We find out here why we get things wrong: We do not know the Bible well enough and we underestimate God’s power.
Learning the Bible requires a disciplined approach. It must be a habit. We have to choose to make time for reading it each day.
I have been helped by forcing myself to write (in this blog) about a verse or verses that get my attention. In some cases, I do research on the verses as I try to avoid just reading them and then moving on.
I enjoy hearing sermons on Scripture. There is so much to be learned.
We underestimate the power of God all the time. “We fear because we forget God’s sovereignty.” – Tim Keller.
The issue connected to today’s verses was whether there could be a resurrection. Without an all-powerful God, of course this couldn’t happen. With God? All things are possible.
“Lord, I need to know Your Word better. I also need to realize that Your power is greater than any difficulty I can imagine. You know what is best. Help me to know Your Word and Your power in a greater way. I love You, God.”
We now have the formula for knowing God better.
