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.
• To discover, come to know, or find something by examination.
The above scriptures declares that it is right and honorable to search or examine the words of God. Not in a critical way of examining something, but wanting to experience it for yourself type of examination. We know that God cannot lie, so we are never to question what He says. But Jesus said "go ahead and look at what I said for yourselves". Jesus said "read the scriptures because they testify of me".
Many times people are willing to listen to another person’s testimony because they want to know more about that person or hear what they went through to get where they are in life. Yet, many times as Christian's, we won’t read the word of God to hear His testimony and what He went through for us.
Search the scriptures means to not just casually glance at them, but to have an intense exploration of the true treasures of God. The word of God is our delight and we should never grow weary of searching its pages. Go ahead and wear out your bible pages from continued searching and finding and searching and finding. God will never have us searching and never finding, He is always so eager to freely give to those who seek Him. Look and then look some more, God can show you new things that you’ve never seen before.
