Morning Coffee 10/6/16 You Need Both!

Read John 14:1-18

17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. – John 14:17 NLT

11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth. – Acts 17:11 NLT

Hello family, when we study God’s word, when we research a message we heard, we will need God’s word. but also we will need to hear his holy spirit. You see even before the speaker finishes the message. The holy spirit will give you warning signs. he may even urge you to research the person you are listening to.

When studying the scriptures pray and ask the holy spirit to reveal what you are reading. Don’t go in haphazardly. Read and study with purpose and intent, letting the holy spirit lead you to truth. We can’t be a bible scholar and not open our ear to the voice of the holy spirit. And we can’t be all super spiritual ether we need balance of both in our lives. They compliment one another. So seek God in your quiet time but also be ready to open you bible.

Much Love & God Bless
