2018 – TUESDAY 30 OCTOBER
BRING BACK THE BIBLE STUDY
One of my greatest pains in life is to sit in a group and listen to them have a conversation about any of the big issues of life – without reference to God and His word.
They pontificate profusely, stating their opinions with rabid gusto.
I can’t help myself – I have to interrupt and ask them what Bible scriptures they use to substantiate their opinion.
Their response is always the same.
“I don’t know what the Bible says – but this is my opinion and I am sticking to it.
Let me give you some advice about such people.
1. DON’T SIT AT THE CAMPFIRE OF FOOLS
The current social phenomena of the “coffee culture” is the modern expression of the campfire of fools.
It has taken over from the bar in the pub – as the place of worthless conversation.
Make sure your coffee times count.
2. KNOW YOUR PLACE AT THE TABLE
When seated with a company of people – learn your place in the social order. To watch people dominate a conversation when they are obviously not versed on the subject – is to watch a donkey braying at its own image in a mirror.
3. BE QUICK TO LISTEN AND SLOW TO TALK
Even fools are considered wise when they keep their mouth shut.
Learners are listeners.
4. IF YOU FOLLOW GOD – FIND OUT WHAT HE SAYS
The great question is always – “what does the Bible say?”
A lack of knowledge of biblical truth is soon seen for what it is – the ignorance of arrogance.
5. RELIGION KNOWS NOTHING
Just because a person has been a church attender for a long time – does not mean they know God’s word on a personal level.
Religious people often have strong opinions – but weak convictions.
Without revelation – you are irrelevant
6. WALK IN THE TRUTH
Commit to walking in truth – which means;
You take the time to seek God to know and understand His word.
Find a group of people who love to study and share God’s word.
Treasure the word of God as your source of wisdom and grace.
Carry the word of God in your heart as convictions – and use it to bring life to others.
KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
