VII. THE SOUND ATTITUDE THE NEW TESTAMENT
BELIEVERS SHOULD HAVE TOWARD PROVERBS
The next matter that we need to see is the sound attitude the New Testament believers should have toward Proverbs.
A. Believing That It Is a Part of the Holy Word
As New Testament believers, we should believe that Proverbs is a part of the holy word in God’s holy Scriptures.
B. Realizing That It Is the Breath of God
We should realize that Proverbs is the breath of God for us to breathe in that we may receive the life supply from God (2 Tim. 3:16).
C. Reading It
Next, we should read Proverbs by being filled with the fullness of God in our spirit (Eph. 5:18-19), in the New Testament Spirit of life (Rom. 8:2), with our regenerated spirit, and by pray-reading to mingle it with spirit and life (cf. John 6:63).
VIII. THE SECTIONS
Proverbs has four sections: the collection of Solomon (chs. 1—24), the collection of Hezekiah (chs. 25—29), the word of Agur (ch. 30), and the word of King Lemuel (ch. 31).
