Instruction book

My dad loved being a CET. In 8th grade, my teacher came to me and asked for help. The R2-D2 circuit board the older students were assembling, some of the led lights would work and some wouldn't. They sent me home with one that didn't. My dad was so excited. He got out his meter and went to work. The minute he started, he found the problem. The led's were put in backwards. He was disappointed it wasn't harder. When I got to school, my teacher was waiting at the classroom door. When I told him the answer, he was mortified. Everyone had the same instructions but without that basic understanding of electronics, they didn't see the answer.
People do that too with the bible. You have scholars, theologians, and teachers, that all claim they know the bible but if they don't have the Holy Spirit in them, the bible is just another instruction book. We need to live and breathe the word of God, "walk the talk" not just talk the talk. Showing people what the truth is. Putting the words what we read into action by letting the Holy Spirit "literally" guide us and teach us what we should know.
1 Corinthians 2:13 "These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual."
