Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - September 21

September 21

Listeningwith Eyes on God’s Word

They received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

>Acts 17:11, niv

Following the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, His disciples fanned out all over the known world, telling people they could now be reconciled with God through faith in Jesus Christ. How were the religious faithful to know if this was true? How could they discern the true Shepherd’s voice?

A fascinating glimpse is given to us when the apostle Paul, who had started heated debates and even riots in practically every synagogue and city where he preached the Gospel, slipped into the little town of Berea. As was his custom, he went straight to the synagogue in order to share the wonderful good news that the Messiah had come. This time when he preached, “they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”

We will recognize our Shepherd’s voice when we listen with our eyes on the pages of our Bibles.
