Do you understand what God wants you to do? Do you have the correct insight to make decisions as we flow down the river of life? Truth must be properly comprehended and applied to different situations.
Peter tells us to add knowledge to our faith. Christ taught his disciples the will of God because he shared all things he had heard from his father. (John 15:15)
2 Peter 1:5 (ESV)
5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith iwith virtue,5 and virtue jwith knowledge,
John McArthur says, This virtue involves a diligent study and pursuit of truth in the Word of God. Unfortunately we feel that we know the Bible and it's stories. We have knowledge but do we understand?
What do you know of God's Word? Did you read and study this morning? Do you have a specific time set aside to know the Bible? Do you ask good questions and seek to find quality answers?
Go back to His Word today! Don't miss what Jesus has for you in His Word.
