Acts 17:10,11 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Prove the Scriptures.  Topics:  2 at end.

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.  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.”  KJV http://www.bible.com  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Here could it be seen that this scripture gives us the permission to question what we read in the Bible?  Let’s take a look.

We are told that the Bereans “searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”  We are not told specifically what “those things” were.  But we definitely get the idea that the Bereans do not take at face value everything they were being taught – particularly by Paul and Silas here.  Elsewhere in scripture we are told to test or “prove” things.  I Thess. 5:21 tells us, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (KJV).  Well, those Bereans did hold fast.  The Word is always good.

Wouldn’t it have been lovely if they could have seen the mention of their study habits in the New Testament?  Of course, it wasn’t written as we know it, back then.  But there is a point made to highlight their dedication, whenever this was actually written up so that it became part of our New Testament. 

So could we guess as to what would be written about ourselves and the Christians we know?  Hopefully the mention of us would be coupled with grand statements about our faithfulness and our interest in proving true the True Word of God.  Perhaps the point would be made that our minds were open to investigate what is really in the scriptures and that we would prove over and over the accuracy of the Bible.  And hopefully we would be mentioned as accurate in our presentation of the Word to others.

Lord, we ask you to help us to be as faithful as the Bereans in our approach to the scriptures.  You give us the freedom to prove You and Your Word.  It is a great privilege.  Help us to be faithful and to seek out Your will regarding issues of LIFE and death, of choices and decisions. 

We do not ask, Lord, for any mention of ourselves in writings from You; just help us to be faithful in Your sight, and then in humility we will offer our proofs of the total accuracy of Your Word to the world in which LIFE and death, choices and decisions are so dependent on not only Your Word, but on You.

Topics:  Pray for steadfast dedication to prove the scriptures true, as they are always true.
