Acts 17:11 (NKJV)

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

In the business world, when deals are made, it is considered mandatory to perform what is called due diligence. Across the dinner table where deals are often struck, the excitement can be contagious. But when it comes time to sign on the dotted line, you will find a wise businessman exercising caution. The good news of Jesus Christ should be no different. Regardless of how good something sounds, a reasonable person should always exercise care to avoid making a foolish commitment. We don't have a blind faith. The Christian faith is not in ourselves but in a person. That person is trustworthy. When you buy a new piece of clothing, you will first try it on to see if it fits. Jesus himself says that if we want to know whether what he says is true or not, just "try it on," do what he says and you will find out.

John 7:17 (NKJV)

If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.
