Hook, line, sinker, fisherman and boots…

“…But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things]…” – 1 Cor 2:15 (Amplified version)

I’ve been pondering on this verse of the scripture since I read it yesterday.

So why do people make it look like we are to just swallow everything we hear from the pulpit without questioning?


In my opinion, as long as you have the Spirit of God in you, regardless of who the message is coming from, if your spirit doesn’t accept it, then don’t do it.

If that WORD is truly from God, with time he will break it down to you, if not, do not take any step that God’s spirit in you has not convinced you about.

Just like the ‘Bearean Christians’ described in Acts 17: 11, we are to:

- Receive the word of God with all readiness of mind.

- Use discernment

- Search the scriptures daily, to see whether the thing’s (WORD) you’ve heard are so.

In the house of God, there is no such thing as taking someone’s word ‘hook-line-sinker-fisherman-and-boots’.


Let God confirm the words and speak to your spirit himself, he’s not an author of confusion.

It’s him you’re serving, right?

It’s him you want to live for, right?

And he loves you, right?

I then believe that if he wants to pass a message across, he’ll not leave you confused about it, he’ll make sure your heart understands what he wants you to do.

So I say this to you as I say it to myself, (adds #NoteToSelf), when listening to that person’s opinion who you so respect in the things of God, and a question suddenly rises in your heart, don’t feel bad, don’t shut out that question, it means God wants you to search deeper about that matter.

Go ahead and do just that until your spirit is settled within you.

He/She has spoken, now, let GOD speak!
