As this is a fairly new project I hope you will continue to come back to read and “chew” on my thoughts for the day. I promise to stay out of politics, but I also promise I will challenge you to grow spiritually, and make the Bible an important part of your daily life.
Quips and quibbles – that’s the name of the game. Pictures may move the world, but words rule the World. But if you refuse to read God’s Word don’t be surprised with your constant struggle with sin and the world. As one of my favorite Bible teachers, Howard Hendricks, said many years ago – “This book (the Bible) will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this book.” Don’t let that be true for you.
One day at a time, sweet Jesus…right? That old gospel song carries a lot of truth. Every day is challenging; physically, socially, intellectually, financially (do I need to go on????). Learn to come to God’s Word daily and let the Father change your little by little, step by step. One day you will look back and realize the tremendous strides you have made in becoming more Christ-like.
More importantly, the Great Commission will become a staple in your life, as it should for all Christians. “Then Jesus came close to them and said, ‘All authority of the universe has been given to me. Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.'” (Matthew 28:18-20 The Passion Bible).
