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 declare 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 myself type of examination. We know that God can not 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 we won’t read the word of God to hear His testimony and what He went through for us.
Search the scriptures meaning not just a casual glance but 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 yet never finding, He is always so eager to freely give to those who seek Him.
The scriptures tell us in Matthew 13:44-46
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Look and then look some more, God can show you great and mighty things, things that are not obvious to your natural human understanding, things that have been hidden for you before you were born.
