Good Hermeneutics is Rooted in a Deep Love for God and His Word

To have a solid understanding of God’s word, we need to be able to properly interpret the Scriptures. This interpretation is called hermeneutics, and hermeneutics is extremely important for the believer because practicing bad interpretation or bad hermeneutics leads to false teaching and heresy.

We should desire to practice good hermeneutics because we should be driven by a love for Jesus and a desire to obey His Word. Out of that desire should grow a desire to understand exactly what God is communicating to us through His Word. In addition, our desire to gain biblical understanding will produce the discipline of practicing good hermeneutics.

We cannot live lives that are obedient and that fulfill the calling of God, and we cannot teach others and make disciples if we practice bad interpretation.
