The Value of Knowing the Scoop




1 Timothy 4:1-6; 1 Peter 3:13-16

Encouraging the disheartened is important for a body of Christians. Enduring tough times is too. And worshiping is equally essential. A church needs all three . . . but a ministry is incomplete unless there is also the presence of learning. Healthy, vibrant flocks are kept in that condition by a continual emphasis on the discovery of new truth as well as the review of old truths. Such emphases give our faith stability and substance. Growing Christians are always learning, probing, and pursuing an ever-increasing knowledge of Scripture as well as an ever-enlarging knowledge of the Lord Himself. As we shall see, learning includes an awareness of the objective doctrines as well as the practical side of putting such knowledge into action.
