“Be a Berean”

Acts 17:10–15 KJV 1900
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 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. 12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few. 13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people. 14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still. 15 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
the Berean believers are an incredible model for us on what it looks like to search the Scriptures, and stand on the truth of Scripture alone.
Spending time in this book with your eyes without living it out in your life is hypocrisy.
Attempting to live out this book in your life without spending time in this book with your eyes is insanity.
Outline:

1. Their Approach to the Word

a. The Word Produced Noble Character

verse 11 - they were “more noble than those...”

b. The Word Produced New Christians

verse 12 - “therefore (because of the Bereans) many of them believed!”

c. the Word Produced Notable Chaos

Not everyone is going to be a fan of Jesus and His Word.
