You’ve been schooled! In His Word 2-20-23

We have been taught how to live in the Bible. God has shown us what to do and wh

at not to do. It is really amazing how much we know.  The best thing is how the Word comes back to us to accomplish what God planned with it.

There is a scripture that says, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”(Philippians 4:13) The other day when I was hiking with my husband I had a blast going up the mountain! The thing is once we get to the top or the point we are hiking to we rejoice and it feels good but then… we have to hike back down. Going down is harder than hiking up because you are worn out a bit, and in my case I reached a point that my hiking sticks were really holding me up! I had stopped to break before heading the rest of the way down and the above scripture came to me as I prayed to God to give me strength He gave me a song, then another, then another and before I realized it there was our car at the bottom of the trail! He taught me in His Word to call on the Lord when I am weak, and He will help me be strong!

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.2 Corinthians 12:9-11

See, even now I see that we have been taught!

You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17

So now that we know we have been taught what is good and right, then what do we do with this great knowledge?

    Come, let us announce in Jerusalem everything the Lord our God has done. Sharpen the arrows! Lift up the shields! For the Lord has inspired the kings of the Medes to march against Babylon and destroy her. This is his vengeance against those who desecrated his Temple. Raise the battle flag against Babylon! Reinforce the guard and station the watchmen. Prepare an ambush, for the Lord will fulfill all his plans against Babylon. Jeremiah 51:10-12

Having carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I also have decided to write an accurate account for you, most honorable Theophilus, 4 so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught. Luke 1:3-4

Once we study to show ourselves approve by God we need to share it with someone! With everyone around us realy but Jesus said to go and tell the world in Mark 16:15 and that is the reason for all that we have learned. The best way to do that is to share what God has done for you today.

Count your blessings, and then teach them to someone else!

In Jesus name
