They key to unlocking God’s Word
April 3, 2012
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.
I know so many people today who know all about the Bible. They’ve heard Sunday school lessons their entire lives. They know the Bible stories; they know the personalities of Scripture; they know about the death, the burial, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Yet they’ve never been born again.
These people are spiritually blind. They have no spiritual discernment. They are an example of the natural man the apostle Paul talks about… those who have no understanding of the Word of God (Romans 3:9-11). And as a result, they may gain a surface understanding of a few spiritual principles of the Bible, yet they will never really grasp the full meaning and significance of this powerful book.
On the other hand, there are those whose eyes have been opened to God’s life-giving truth that’s found in the Scriptures. They love the things of God. Yes, time in the Word takes discipline for them, but they truly do relish in God’s precepts.
The point is this: If you want to really understand God’s Word… if you want your eyes to be opened to what He has to say… you have to be renewed in your mind. So place your faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and allow God’s Spirit of truth to dwell in you!
SCRIPTURE CAN ONLY BE TRULY UNDERSTOOD WITH THE SPIRIT AS YOUR GUIDE. SO IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN BORN AGAIN, TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST AND GOD’S SPIRIT OF TRUTH WILL LIVE INSIDE OF YOU!
