Topic: Search The Scriptures (Open Heaven 15 August 2020)

Memorise: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15

Read: Acts 17:10-12 (KJV)

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

Bible in One Year: Jeremiah 32-34

Open Heaven 15 August 2020 Saturday MESSAGE:

Some people think that being a Christian is just about attending Church service every Sunday and some other programmes from time to time. Far from it. Being a Christian is having such a cordial relationship with Christ that you begin to behave like Him. How can you have that cordial relationship with Him when all you know about Him is what you are told from the pulpit? True Christians do not depend on the Pastor to know who God is; they study the Scriptures themselves and get the revelation of God firsthand. Believe me, there is no revelation better than the one given to you by the Holy Spirit Himself.

Worst still are Christians who get their knowledge of God from other people’s opinions, without any background check as to the personality of the person addressing them. Once someone comes and talks about God to their hearing, quoting Scriptures and interpreting it, they believe everything the fellow is saying. You know the devil also quotes Scripture and interprets it. Get to know God yourself. you cannot understand the word of God except by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said:

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”John 14:26

When last did you take a topic and study the Scriptures about it? When last did you ask the Holy Spirit to explain a particular Scripture to you? After reading this devotional every morning, do you actually ask the Holy Spirit for more insight into what has been discussed in it? I encourage you to start searching for the truth by yourself. As evidently anointed as Paul was, the people of Berea still search the Scriptures to confirm what he had told them and they were described as more noble than the Thessalonians who never searched the Scriptures themselves (Acts 17:11).

Open Heaven 15 August 2020 Saturday Action Point:

Immerse yourself in the study of the word of God. Create a Bible study plan and ensure you stick to it.

Open Heaven 15 August 2020 Saturday Hymn 20: Nearer My God To Thee

  1. Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee;
    E’en though it be a cross
    That raiseth me,
    Still all my song shall be
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee.
  2. Though, like a wanderer,
    The sun gone down,
    Darkness comes over me,
    My rest a stone;
    Yet in my dreams I’d be
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee.
  3. There let me see the sight,
    An open heaven;
    All that Thou sendest me,
    In mercy given;
    Angels to beckon me
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee.
  4. Then, with my waking thoughts
    Bright with Thy praise,
    Out of my stony griefs
    Bethel I’ll raise,
    So by my woes to be
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee.
