Check the Message

Many people today watch preachers on TV or the Internet. Or they read books that talk about God and Jesus. Some of these preachers and writers are very good, but others preach a message that does not agree with God’s Word.
Our Bible Reading tells us about the Christians in Berea. Verse 11b says that these Christians “studied the Scriptures every day to make sure that what they heard was really true.” These people were wise. They did not want to pay attention to false teaching. The Berean Christians checked to make sure that Paul’s message agreed with God’s Word.
We should be like the Christians in Berea. When we watch a preacher on TV or read a book about God, we need to be very careful. We should always make sure they are following the Bible.
Be careful today to learn and teach things that agree with God’s Word.
