If you have ever read the Bible, I’m sure at some point you’ve read something in there and thought, “I don’t get it.”
You may find comfort in knowing that Peter, an Apostle, wrote this –
“And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” ~ 2 Peter 3:15-18 ESV
Yes, some of the things we read in the Bible take a little digging to properly understand – a leader in the first church admits as much.
Today’s good news is having to dig a little is a good thing. When we have to dig, we learn, and remember better.
So, dig away, and do it with others in community. You will find that as you dig you will, as Peter says, grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.
