To help us shepherd others we must understand certain aspects of what they need to know from God's Word. A key aspect of this discipleship and shepherding is helping them become very familiar with God's Word and the doctrines of grace and truth which are revealed from Genesis to Revelation. That takes a tenacity and perseverance on our part in our study of His Word and exposure to what He wants us to know about Him and our existence.
I think something that has helped me very much in my walk of faith is a deeper dive study of Genesis because so many of the doctrines which we see in other parts of the Bible are there as "seeds of truth" for our understanding and wisdom for living.
One example there is in the first sacrifice of Genesis 3 and how God takes the life of an innocent and its skin to "cover" as an atonement for Adam's sin, providing for their being protected from God's wrath over man's sinfulness. This is a preview of what God would eventually do with the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Here is a 1/2 hour show out of a ministry in Canada known as Creation Magazine LIVE!, which focuses on the seeds of doctrinal truth found in Genesis and revealed further in the rest of the Bible. I hope it is for you an encouragement to your understanding of God's Word and your walk of faith. Click on the above link or the link below!
