|1 Thessalonians 5:21 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|No matter who is doing the teaching or preaching we should always know if it's the truth or not. There are many that for many years claim to be Christian but don't even know what the bible says. How can you check what is being taught if you don't know what the truth is? The only source of truth is the Word of God. 1 John 4:1, there are a lot of wolves in sheep clothing. We should not be live every spirit because not all spirits are good. A preacher should always be reading and have the bible with them at all times. Opinions are not truth but of personal thoughts. Preachers can lead you wrong. They can be teaching you something that they don't fully know themselves. It's not that all would intentionally mislead or misguide but simply not know and teach on assumptions. If you don't go to Sunday School then you need to start. The key word there is school. Our church is in session for about an hour learning more about Gods Word every Sunday. We should prove the preaching and to prove all things. We should know the difference between good and evil. Do you believe there is a devil? A car mass does one thing and one thing only, it points to true north. Just as the compass, the scripture points to the truth. We are pretty smart at most times and we know when we are in the middle of something that's not right. How do they know what is a counterfeit bill, they study the real. Not only should we prove what is good but we are to hold to those truths. It's a continuous process of sowing and reaping good things. The preacher can't plant the good stuff for you. He plants his own and you plant your own. In order to hold fast to the good it takes discipline. A lot of people don't like discipline because it's usually painful. Heb 10:23, you've got to make a choice and commit. Psa 119:33-34, once you've proven all things to the good then you should stick to the good, Phil 4:8.|

|1 Thessalonians 5:20 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|In this scripture prophesying means, preaching. Despise: To dislike Have you ever sat under some preaching and thought, well that's not for me? We should never think that we are over the preached word. There is always something in a sermon that is for you. Preaching is important, the Word of God is very important to our souls. When you walk into our building the first thing one sees is the elevated pulpit. All of the pews are facing the front. All of our attention should be upon the front of the church. We should not honor the one bring the word but the word itself. God is not concerned about the vessel but the obedience it has. The story should never get old. Every time you hear about the cross and its suffering it should be like you've never heard it before and break you once again. Some hear the title of the sermon and mark it off as if they've got it figured out already and do not need it. Don't check out prematurely! No matter whom is preaching the message and whether you like them or not, it's not the deliverers that bless but the Word of God. We must ALL be careful of whom is bringing the Word because that person is only a deliverer. Don't think yourself above the preaching. It pleases God thru the foolishness of preaching. The jumping, yelling, crying, screaming, running, etc. Not only to save souls but to keep them and grow them. We don't know how God is going to bless and feed so we must be very careful NOT to despise.|
