An Acrostic to Help You Remember What’s Part of the Bible Teaching-Learning Process
faith comes from hearing the message (Rom. 10:17)
- Start with the truth of God’s Word.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15)
- Break it down to understand what it means.
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way (Col. 1:9-10)
- Determine the implications of how it applies to life.
faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:17)
faith without deeds is useless (James 2:20)
- Commit to following through on the application.
so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God (Col. 1:10)
- Bring glory to God by living in accordance with His Word.
