Seek guidance from those who understand God’s Word.
[Steve Myers] Where do you go when you need help? I was trying to fix a leak in a sink and I had no clue how I was supposed to do this. So, go to YouTube. You can look and search for all kinds of different things. And there’s videos there that will show you how to do things. My daughter took apart the front bumper of her car to fix a little temperature gauge, and there was a YouTube video, and she did it all on her own. It was amazing. Actually, taking the car apart and being able to put it back together. I mean, you can find what you need out there. And I think it speaks to an important lesson for us when it comes to really understanding the Bible, because we don’t know everything. As individuals, I don’t understand everything there is. I don’t know how to fix my sink.
I certainly don’t know how to take a bumper off a car, but I can find out how, and you can do the same when it comes to understanding the Bible. Go to those who do understand, that know how to do it, who can take the bumper off the Bible and really open up the true meaning to the Bible. Or, in other words, when you think about it, get the guidance that you need, and where do you find that? Well, you may not find it on YouTube, but you can certainly find it on ucg.org. Go to the church, go to the church and seek guidance. God’s church has been given understanding when it comes to the word of God. God’s commissioned the church in a way and His servants to help guide people. If you remember the commission Jesus gave to the disciples, “Go and teach and make disciples,” because they were able to understand the truth by the power of God’s Spirit.
And so, go to the people who can help you understand. Go to God’s church, go to the website. There’s all kinds of wonderful things. United Church of God produces so many publications, so many booklets, and you can order those for yourself or read them online. So, contact the church and get the help you need to be able to understand the Bible. There’s a wonderful passage that’s a good reminder of that over in Proverbs 11:14 Proverbs 11:14Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
American King James Version×, it says, “Where there’s no counsel, the people fail, but in the multitude of counselors, there is safety.” So, come to the church, get the direction, find the counselors that will help you to understand the truth of the Bible. It’s easy. If you’re on the web, just go to the contact tab and you can fill out and even ask questions, ask questions, and get those questions answered so that you can have a better understanding of the Bible.
