3. A Greater RighteousnessRelated Media
How refreshing it is to come into contact with someone who really understands the mind and heart of God. What a joy to sit under insightful Bible teaching while fresh truths are communicated clearly. It not only drives us to a deeper understanding of God, but it also makes us long to live for Him. If anyone had a direct line of communication with the Father, it was Jesus. And when Jesus taught the Scriptures, people noted His authority and were fascinated by His insights into God and the Scriptures. According to Howard Hendricks, one reason we don’t learn more is that we’ve not been sufficiently confused. Confusion often precedes understanding. Or another way to say it: We won’t learn new answers until we ask new questions. Jesus forced people to ask new questions that stretched their understanding and behavior. My prayer is that we are stretched, too.
