Be A Berean

11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” ~ Acts 17:11

As a Church, we’ve lost our desire to study the Bible. We’ve become content with not knowing Scripture. It’s become okay not to know if something is in the Bible or not. If something is a sin or not. How to get saved? Can you really lose your Salvation? Do you need to be baptized?

We’ve gotten rid of the need to actually know God and His Word. We’re satisfied just knowing that God is God, and that’s it. We don’t search for anything else. We can no longer defend our own beliefs. We don’t check to see if what the Preacher is preaching is accurate. We’re too busy for that, but we’ll find time to read about our favorite celebrities. Watch our favorite movies and T.V. shows. Hang out with our friends.

By no means are any of these things wrong by themselves, but when it comes to placing them above God and the things of God, that’s when it becomes an idol. That’s when it becomes a sin. That’s why the author of the book of Acts was bigging up the Bereans. They were hungry for the Word of God. They desired to know the truth. They were awake and growing, but we’ve fallen asleep. No one grows during a Spiritual Sleep; instead, they begin to die. Spiritual Slumber leads to Spiritual Death. And the worst part is, you won’t even know you’re dying. You won’t be able to stop it unless you wake up. Unless you build a true relationship with Jesus. The only way to do that is to read and study your Bible, worship, pray, go to Church, and follow in His footsteps.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be A Berean.
