What Don’t You Understand (Part 2)

We are still looking at some truths from Nehemiah Chapter 8.  We are dealing with the subject of understanding.  We talked yesterday about the need for a responsible proclaimer.  Today, we find that there must also be a reliable proclamation.  We must be proclaiming the right things.  Verse 8 says, “So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.” Notice that he read “in the book in the law of God.” This was not some self-help book, or New York Times bestseller. This was the Word of God. Just hearing something from a pastor or preacher does not make it truth. We must pay very close attention to what they are saying and confirm that truth in the Bible.  The Word of God is our ultimate authority.  I really believe that the reason many people are confused about spiritual things is because they hear so much that is not true.  Then it become hard to decipher the truth from the lies.

So here is a challenge for today.  Share a Biblical truth with someone today.  It’s easy.  What is something that God has taught you through His Word?  Tell somebody what this is.  Tell a family member, a friend, post about it on social media.  There is so much misinformation going around today.  Just tell somebody some truth today.
