Mighty in Scripture
The Bible tells us about a man named Apollos. He was "mighty in the Scriptures.” He knew what the Bible taught. He knew how to rightly divide the Word of God. But how was he able to do it? Apollos spent quality time and quantity time in the Word of God. Think how much time we waste piddling on the computer and mindlessly watching TV. What if we took some of that time and dedicated it to memorizing a passage of Scripture ... or even an entire chapter? What if we disciplined ourselves to read or to listen to several chapters of the Bible each day? Is it possible to become "mighty in the Scriptures?" YES! It just doesn't happen without putting in the time. Proverbs 16:20 says, "He who gives attention to the Word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD" Now that’s real hope.
