Zeal without Knowledge
Last Saturday, we met with our Victory group leaders and Pastor JX preached on how knowing the Word of God brings health in our walk with Jesus and how we lead and disciple others.
Whether you live in a restricted nation or in a free country like ours – where the freedom to read the Bible openly is allowed, there is no excuse for a Christian not to grow in his/her knowledge of the word.
Going through Romans 10:1-4 this morning, re-emphasizes what was discussed during our leader’s meeting:
Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
We have to assess how we engage and establish our people. Do we point people to Jesus? Do we encourage them to dig deeper in their faith? Do we go through with them on a journey to know who Jesus is and what Jesus has done for us?
