Devotion: How Important is Discernment? Acts 20:28-31
Are we relying on the Word of God or feelings?  Is it too much to call for constant discernment and guarding the truth?  If Paul spent 3 years not ceasing night or day to admonish every one with tears over this topic, then this is a very important topic.  Jesus, Peter, Paul and John warned us, are we listening to the warning?
One Way Christian Center is a Reformed Baptist Church, located in Olustee, OK close to Altus, OK and Altus AFB.

Devotion Notes:
    • 3 to 4 weeks on false prophets and teachers 2nd Peter Chapter 2
        • Am I becoming paranoid
            • The more I study the more concerned I get
        • Am I blowing things out of proportion
            • There are a lot of nice people
                • Seem to have good intentions
                • Not too concerned with what is being preached
                • Not many speak out against false teachings
                    • But he/she is a nice person
                    • They have good intentions
    • Then I read these verses
Acts 20:28-31 ESV  
    • Notice the gravity and importance
    • Jesus, Peter, Paul, John… All gave SEVERE warnings
    • Paul is telling the pastors, elders, and deacons to be on guard.
    • He warns them day and night for 3 years with tears!
    • How many pastors do you know who are THIS concerned with false teachings creeping in?
    • Are they crazy?
    • Are they paranoid?
    • Are they blowing things out of proportion?  
Then, Jesus, Paul, Peter, and John are crazy, paranoid, blowing things out of proportion.
    • It’s time to wake up!!!
        • Check your feelings against the Word of God
        • Just because someone is a nice person, it doesn’t mean they preach truth
Stay tuned, more during the sermon!!!
