A Word from Mike…

I, like many of you, spend a lot of time considering what God is saying to us in His Word. I want to get as much as I can and not miss a thing that He has to say. Sometimes, I can become so eager to find a word from Him that I can confuse what is mere narrative with what is instructive. There are plenty of instructions and commands in scripture for us to follow, but there are also some things written that merely describe events. Now, we can learn truth from everything written, but just what truths to learn and apply can present a challenge. Some passages, then, are descriptive while others are prescriptive. Part of the observational step in studying a passage has to do with determining the difference. Understanding the genre of a passage (what kind of literature it is) is an important part of this process. Is it narrative; meaning that it is describing a situation, setting, or action? Is it instructive; telling someone what to do or not do? Is it a parable; using a fictional story to make a literal point? Maybe it’s poetry or prophetic literature, which can be difficult to interpret.

Without going into great length here, suffice it to say that we want to be careful trying to claim promises, or follow instructions that may not be for us. Certainly, God can speak to us through His Word, and He surely has the prerogative to do that in even unexpected ways, but, we as teachers should be cautious using scripture carelessly in exhorting people to do things that God may not have intended for them.

So, a good habit to practice in studying scripture, is to ask of every passage: “Is it descriptive, or is it prescriptive?” then, go from there to determine what to understand and apply.

Next time, we’ll consider how to go about looking for principles of application that are consistent with the meaning of the passage under consideration.

God’s blessings as we increase our skills in studying God’s Word together!

Louisiana flooding.and Hurricane Matthew

For the latest on the Arkansas Baptist State Convention Disaster Relief response to Louisiana flooding (click on Louisiana flooding).

Here's the update on Hurricane Matthew and the ARDR:

Hey, everyone.

I just want to let you know what’s going on.

We were originally going to Florida, but Hurricane Matthew decided to go on up the coast.

Instead, we have partnered with Oklahoma to staff our Unit 1 Feeding unit in Greenville, NC.

The meal count is projected to be 30,000/day (a lot!). Currently, we are scheduled to serve three weeks.

Wednesday, Oct. 12, the unit left being pulled by Tyson with a set-up team. Thursday the AR/OK feeding team rolled out in the OK tour bus. We started cooking on Friday.

Geyer Springs Shower Unit also deployed to the same location in Greenville, NC.

Please pray for our teams’ working conditions and for those whose lives are greatly challenged in the storm aftermath.

Follow us on facebook to stay abreast the deployment (Missions Team ABSC).

So appreciate you!

You are the people who make this relevant ministry possible.
