TOPIC: RESOURCES FOR GOOD READING
TEXT: ACTS 8:26-35
MEMORY VERSE: “And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this…” (ACTS 8:31, 32a).
Christian youths are not supposed to be novices in the knowledge of the word of God. God's ultimate expectation for every believer is maturity. "Brethren, be not children in understanding... but in understanding be men" (1 Corinthians 14:20).
Thompson Chain Reference Bible, Strong or Cruden's Concordance, Study Bibles are materials believers take joy in possessing in days gone by. Today, Christians are better positioned because apart from these books, computer software Bible materials that can edify believers are now available. Resources for studying the Bible are packaged in software such as e-Sword, and Power Bible CD.
Bible based Christian websites like dclm.org where past messages of the church are preserved in audio and video; tracts for personal edification and soul-winning; magazines and soul-winning books meant purposefully for youths, are readily available. As you explore this site, you will discover the amazing repository of spiritual wealth packaged therein.
However, none of these materials and study aids is to replace the Bible. Rather, they are supposed to aid our understanding of it. We have more opportunities today than the Ethiopian eunuch.
QUOTE: We have more opportunities today.
CHALLENGE: The Bible is supreme.
PRAYER: Father, help me not to remain a babe but grow in grace.
