Peter is giving us instructions on how to teach and how to learn.

The first example Peter gives us is to stand up and raise his voice. He did this to get everyone’s attention and then he focused on the Word; while making sure to eliminate distractions.

Next, he focused on understanding and application of the Word of God.  Don’t read it like a novel.  When you read the Bible verses, pray and ask how you might apply them in your life today.

Thirdly, the Bible is the Word of God. Don’t take anything lightly and as Peter instructs, “listen carefully to what I say.” Pay attention to sentence structure and context — it was written this way for a reason — God’s reason.   Job 28:12-13
