There are two things that should always go together in our spiritual walk with the Lord; knowing the Scriptures and the power of God. The Pharisees tried to catch Jesus in saying something that would put Him against the Law and their tradition by asking “is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?” (Matthew 22:15-22). Not being able to find fault with Jesus’ answer, the Sadducees tried to stumble Jesus with a question that seemed very exaggerated regarding what would happen in the resurrection. Notice the directness of His answer:
“But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matthew 22:29).
When we do not know the Scriptures and try to deal with difficult questions of life, we will always come up with the wrong answers because we most likely have placed the authority for what we believe in some human source rather than the Word of God. On the other hand, resting our faith and manner of life on what God says in Scripture will result in seeing the power of God working through the Scriptures to confirm what the Word says.
Are you really seeing God work in power in your life and ministry? That is an evidence that you are in agreement with what the Scriptures say on any subject. Be sure that you allow them to inform every area of life and ministry. It is dangerous to be on the “wrong” side of God’s Word.
