What is the take-away today? What was the point of all of this?
FIRST: There are four responses we see today to God’s truth. We looked at 2 today and we’ll look at the remaining 2 next week.
The 2 we saw today when faced with God’s truth:
1) People attack the truth by attacking those who say the truth. Nothing new under the sun.
2) We as Christians have to constantly re-affirm the truth.
SECOND: As Christians we need to constantly rely on the Holy Spirit to enable us to both teach and learn what God’s truth is. If we think we can get by without the power of the Holy Spirit, or that we can stand in our own ability or power, we are mistaken.
Victories only come through the Holy Spirit as we are obedient to Him.
