Reasoning out of the Scriptures. The reasoning facilities that you have are only as good as what you put into it. If you base your reasoning on others, which is what you do as a child, then your reasoning is what others have. If you base your reasoning on your own experiences, then it’s only as good as what experiences you have had in your life. If you put it in your own thought processes, then it’s subject to change from day to day. There is only one true absolute place to base your reasoning on and that is the Word of God. That’s why Paul, in Acts 17:2 reasons with the Jews in Thessalonica out of the Scriptures. Like Paul, you need to continually spend time studying the Word of God in order to keep your reasoning true. If you don’t spend time in the Word, you get tossed to and fro by every issue that comes your way and your faith will be shallow and ship wrecked. On the other hand, spend consistent time in the Bible and your joy will be rich no matter what storms come your way. The Bible has all the answers that man needs but it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the right heart… a heart that has been changed by salvation and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
