The Bereans

The Bereans

The Apostle Paul, went to Berea and preached. The Bible says the Bereans were noble. They received the word. The Greek word here for noble is eugenees. We get the word Eugene and eugenics from it. “Eu” means well and “genees” means genes or genetics – good genes or well – born.

It’s translated into noble, of good birth. Most of the people in Berea weren’t nobility. They weren’t rich or powerful. In fact, there were probably a lot of very poor people. So how are they of good birth or good genes?

When we become born again, we become someone who is born of a good birth. The Bereans received the word, which made them noble. When you receive the word you become born again.

You become a true noble man or woman. You’re to live a noble life, a life of integrity and dignity, because you’re born of God. You’re of good stock, as well-born as it gets, so live that way. Live a life of nobility, because you’re a noble person in the Lord.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

Since you’re a child of God, act like your Father, walk in His ways of love. Show dignity and respect for yourself and others today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
