“‘For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’”
Dr. Warren Wiersbe said if you were to spend thirty minutes a day on any subject—nutrition, history, or something else—in ten years you would have the equivalency of a PhD in that subject. As a Bible student, you are to measure and test everything that you read by the Word of God. You have a grid that it all has to pass through. You have a radar. You see, all truth intersects, and one of the tests of any good book is this: When you put that book down, do you begin to think? Because it will relate to everything else you know.
All genuine truth intersects because all truth is of God. But God did not make you just to be a reservoir of truth, He means for you to be a channel of truth. If you’re growing in knowledge but not growing in grace, you’re going to be dangerous. I’ve met those people. They can split a theological hair into nine separate sections, but they’re not growing in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Take time today to reflect on the grace of Jesus and not only the facts of Jesus. Ask the Lord to lead you to live out His grace and not only take it in.
