Trained by the Word

Hebrews 5;14

The deeper, more “solid” truths about the priesthood of the Lord Jesus could only be given to those who knew Him as Savior.  Athletic training and competition form the metaphor implied by this particular word (exercised).  The one who has come to Christ for spiritual completion is then trained by the Word to discern truth from error and holy behavior from unholy.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 5:14.


This Book, to me, is literally like finding a chest full of precious gems, every day.  It contains endless wisdom, that we desperately need.  Today the theme for Developing Your Eye is Treasure.  I know you can’t see it with your physical sense of sight, however this photo is that of a mountain of precious jewels, gold, and silver-the value of which cannot be calculated.
