I was writing a post for Sunday morning. I was working from the premise that Paul in one of his epistles was overextending himself in interpretation of Old Testament scripture. I had completed about half the article when the Lord spoke to my heart, Shut up; you are wrong.
I hit the delete button and proceeded to extend my study by reading further in the Word. I found plenty of support for Paul's premise and clearly have to admit I was wrong. So today's admonition is the directive Paul gave to Timothy: "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." --2 Timothy 2:15
In the sixteenth chapter of The Acts of the Apostles we read that the Lord opened the heart of a woman named Lydia such that "she attended to the teachings of Paul." Seems my heart has been likewise opened.
God is faithful
