Topic: Word of God
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)
As we would conclude this message series on relationship, I’d like to talk to you couple more weeks on the Word of God. If we shop at the Christian Book Store, we will see there are hundreds of Bible versions in their bookshelves. We can pick which Bible versions we like to use. Unfortunately, many of modern bible versions are not equal to the original version of the Holy Bible. Why do we have several bible versions than any other religions? What this effect to the churches today?
As the author of Hebrews said, the work of God is very powerful tool we have. We have the Bible for our souls, spirits, strengths, minds, and hearts. It can help us to learn how to build relationship with God and people. It can help us to understand the world history in the past, presence, and future. It also can help us to live in healthier life. Without the Bible, we would not be survived. The Bible also said that God’s Word shall not pass away like the world. “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.” (I Peter 1:25a KJV.)
Sadly, many of us may lose the passion to read the Bible everyday. Or many of us exchange the Bible with different version to read for our own interest. If we would go to several different churches each week, we would have difficult to find KJV Bible churches. When I watched some TV programs on TBN, there are only few programs that teach on the KJV Bible. I believe that we need to be sensitive to read God’s Word or listen to the preacher’s message from which Bible.
I believe some churches lost the passion on the God’s Word due to several bible versions and something else. The Bible said we are aliens of this world. We don’t need to equally yoke with the world system, but being children of God. We don’t hear often about how the Bible is corrupted by the world system. It is the same way with Contemporary Christian Music Industries. They are trying to be equally yoke with the rest of the world. I’d be discussing more this issue in the new series on “Two-Side of Living.”
Let me ask you a question. Do you know the real Person Jesus Christ? If not, it is not too late to find Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” He wants to know you and show you the way to live a life if you let Him.
