Series: Handle With Care

How do we correctly handle the Word of God?

How do we apply it to our lives with integrity and wisdom?

How do we avoid the pitfall of misapplying scripture, picking and choosing verses that amplify our preferences and ignoring those that convict us of our brokenness before the Lord.

As followers of Christ, we want to see things accurately through God’s eyes and understand things with His perfect perspective. The primary way in which we can successfully do that is by reading and properly applying His Word…

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalm 19:7-11 (NIV)

15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV)
