The Word of Grace Devotion for the week of December 2, 2013
The Whole Counsel
Acts 20:26-28, “Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all, 27for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. 28Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”
Beloved, as the Apostle Paul would go from place to place planting churches and building up believers he would not cease to declare to them the Word of God. Paul was careful to make certain that his teaching included the whole counsel of God! Paul did so because he knew that there were those who would come in to attempt to destroy the flock.
Beloved, we need the whole counsel of God. I am grateful that one year after I received the Lord that I was directed to a church that taught the Bible. Not a church that taught from the Bible but a church that taught the Bible, from beginning to end, so that I received the whole counsel of God.
Beloved, a steady diet of God’s Word will renew our mind and spirit, strengthen our resolve to persevere and supply us with the discernment needed to know the truth from a lie.
Unfortunately, there will be those who come in to the church who try to instill their own teaching as Paul noted in, Acts 20:29-30, “I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.” This is why we need the whole counsel of God. Beloved, my prayer is that we would never shrink away from teaching the whole counsel of God’s Word.
I pray that you will have a blessed week. I love you and will be praying for you!
