May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us!
‘Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for 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
Too many Christians place the complete responsibility of their spiritual growth on the shoulders of their pastors. Jesus warned us about false teachers. We must also remember that these pastors are humans just like you and me. They could make mistakes. They could be influenced by their personal experiences; not to mention the politics of the church. This why Paul is commending the Bereans for their diligence and ownership of their Spiritual growth. May we too study God’s word every day. When we confirm what is preached our learning grows. When we share our experiences with our pastors they are encouraged.
Have a Blessed Day! Follow Him! One Less Day to Go! Y.B.I.C.

Please pray for my neighbor Marjorie. She recently had surgery on her left shoulder and is experiencing severe pain. She lives alone. I took her breakfast this morning and prayed with her. She told me that she is asking the Lord to take her home. Please lift her up in your prayers.
