Search The Scriptures Daily

Acts 17:10-11 (KJV) And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

These verses describe an ancient time when Paul and Silas are missionaries and this New Testament Church they are visiting is flourishing.  It is vital to note that the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas in the night to Berea.  In modern terms, Berea is a small village that existed approximately fifty miles from this church at Thessalonica.

We can gather from reading this chapter that the 1st-century church is growing and fruitful. Paul’s missionary journeys are spiritually productive through the power and presence of God.  Especially noted in this scripture is the importance of reading and studying the Word of God daily.  God’s divine directive is relevant for ancient times but remains essential for all souls to consider to this day.

Not only does God expect each of us to know His Word, but to study it diligently and apply it to our life, and to spread the good news to others we meet, as did Jesus preach and the Apostle Paul and associates were doing as they treked in the ancient world.
