Paul makes a very important observation about the Thessalonian believers regarding their love for each other. “Now concerning brotherly love, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another” (1 Thessalonians 4:9). This is a principle that is often repeated in Scripture, but also overlook by the church.
We are seeing this principle in action in many places where God sends us. The following is a testimony of this taking place in Myanmar in the last week.
“First time these students were doing Lesson 6 (How to Study the Bible) in God’s Plan for His Disciples, we used John 3:16 as the text. Applications they made to this verse were: “I will go to my village and tell them that God is love, that He created everyone, and displayed that love by His Son dying on the cross. You should receive Him today.”
In 3 hours, God taught us what countless semesters of Bible college exposition couldn't. Incredible!
If you ever wanted to know what it means to be taught by God, I just witnessed it through tears at an orphanage. This was the first time they had ever done a study like this.”
Top the icing on this story, these students were children and young people at an orphanage. If they can grasp the four simple steps of Bible Study, anyone can who desires to learn.
Principle: OBSERVATION - MEDITATION – DISCUSSION - APPLICATION
