Title: 110213 How Does the Bible Direct Us
Description: Consider the foundation we’ve methodically laid thus far in our study. The goal has been
to start at basic “ground-level” and gradually build, one layer of understanding upon another.
< The Bible is the world’s most precious book.
< All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for those who invest in it.
< The old law of Moses served a vital role in God’s eternal plan, but on this historical side
of the cross, we live under the scope of the new covenant of Jesus Christ.
< There are two ultimate sources of authority—heavenly and human. As we handle the New
Testament, we’re interacting with heavenly authority.
< Based on my ongoing interaction with this heavenly authority, I will function either on the
side of “law” or “lawlessness.” I’m encouraged by the Spirit of God to speak and to act
as one who will be “judged under the law of liberty” (James 2.12).
< There are differing categories of Biblical communication whose context must be
appreciated if we are to “accurately handle the word of truth” (2 Tim 2.15).
But how, practically speaking, does the Bible direct us? In real-life terms, how do we transition
from reading God-breathed words on the printed pages of our Bibles to leading God-approved
lives in our own modern context? How can I faithfully interpret his communication to mankind
that was delivered thousands of years ago and faithfully apply it to my own individual life? How
does God speak to me and direct me at this point in history? Consider six “connective paths”
between the Word of God and the human heart.
