Apostle Grace Lubega
[Acts 17:10-11]; 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.
Some people assume that because they have been around church for a long time, they know the Lord. Being the preacher’s kid, a Christian might think she knows God. Some people claim to have read the Bible many times. However, when you ask them the mystery of God’s will, they cannot tell you a thing.
The thing about the scriptures is not how many times you have read them. It is about how many people read you. It is about those men that meet you and feel like they have met God. It is about those things you could not have done except for the scriptures. Jesus never walked with a big Bible. Reading many books does not mean you are learned.
The Bible speaks of the Bereans. They would search out the matters Paul preached to know if they were so. Every Christian must go back and search the scriptures after a sermon. As a man meditates on these things, he creates an atmosphere for God to speak more. The Book of Acts records that as Peter pondered on the vision, God spoke. If he had not pondered on the vision, the spirit of God would not have said anything. For all the years I have preached, I have seen that the people who have matured are they that go back to study the matters.
Excerpt from the sermon: THE WORLD OF SPIRITS by Apostle Grace Lubega
The thing about the scriptures is not how many times you have read them. It is about how many people read you.
