Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
In modern society, the word doctrine is almost a dirty word. People are all for loving Jesus but not for doctrine. You may have heard someone say something like that. The truth is that doctrine only means teaching. Jesus was a teacher. Jesus taught people the truth. Good doctrine is the truth.
So do not be afraid of the word. Believe in Jesus. Believe in teaching about Jesus. All of it should be based on His Word. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. The truth is the teaching about Jesus being God who came to die for your sins.
The purpose of this little devotional is to get you to understand that the word doctrine is a right word. You should hope your church is evident in its teaching of Bible doctrine.
