Draw Near: Week 4, Monday — Dealing With Hard Passages

Today’s Scripture – Psalm 19:10-11; John 17:14-19 (SOAP: Psalm 19:10-11)

Psalm 19:10-11

 They are more desirable than gold,
    even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
    even honey dripping from the comb.
11 They are a warning to your servant,
    a great reward for those who obey them.

John 17:14-19

I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. 16 They do not belong to this world any more than I do. 17 Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. 18 Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. 19 And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.

Have you ever become discouraged with your Bible study because you have encountered some confusing passages? … We all have passages of Scripture that trip us up, but I hope that today’s words will be an encouragement to you. Let’s begin with some words of caution.
