“By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naïve people.” Romans 16:18.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Proverbs 28-29, Psalm 60, and Romans 16.
When should I stop learning about God? Silliest question you’ve heard today, right!
I always need to be in the learning mode.
I like to be in Bible studies or church services and hear references to familiar Scripture. Having been into the Bible every day for 6+ years, it acquires a familiarity. I know the stories and have heard/read discussions of various Scriptures.
HOWEVER, I need to examine the Word. I need to be prepared to take in new insights from the Bible.
Recently a minister got me up to speed on the setting in which a book in the New Testament was written. Knowing of the setting, helped me to understand the content of that NT book better.
Many in our culture are Sunday-only followers. I wonder how they can claim familiarity with God that way. I must NOT, however, be elevating myself because of my nearness to the Word. I have so much to learn and must continue to have a thirst to know more.
“Lord, fill me with Your Wisdom. Open Your Word to me. It is my life’s manual. Help me to understand and apply what is in it. I love You, Father.”
Am I spiritually strong enough to resist the Devil’s sweet talk?
