The past couple of days I have been listening to teachings from Andrew Wommack in my car. It has been revelational to say the least. Actually, that is a major understatement. I am dumbstruck at what I have heard. And more than once I have been totally amazed at his explanation of a scripture, only to end up wondering why I have never realised the true meaning of it before!
I read the Bible regularly. I have been doing it for years. I have read through the entire Bible. I am reading through the entire Bible now again. But still, there are many verses, well-known verses, for which I have never fully comprehended the proper meaning.
It made me realise again, that reading the Bible is not enough. We need to do more than that. We need to meditate on what we read. We need to ask Holy Spirit to break it open for us, to give us insight, so that we may understand the hidden treasures of God’s Word.
Let me give you an example of a verse that has totally blown my mind when I listened to the teaching.
Galatians 3:13-14 – Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written,“Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
What is your interpretation of this verse? Meditate on it for a while.
