Topic: Word of God
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (II Timothy 3:16-17 KJV)
What else major different between Christianity and other world religions? Living Words of God. The Bible, we have, is not just religious book that has many do and don't rules. It's the God's Words, who breathe with His Words to create entire universe, the earth, and us. It was not a Big Bang Theory to create the universe as Stephen Hawkins suggested. In John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The Word was the logos. As we read the first chapter of Genesis, we see that God's Words to create this world for us to dwell in. Before the serpent destroyed God's plan, He tended the earth as our home eternally. Unfortunately, God had to limit the age of human's living up to 120 years old age due to our sins. Before the great flood (Genesis 6-9), most people can live up to 950 or more.
The book that we have is the unique ones. Even the Bible is an ancient book, it is still relevant to today's generation. In fact, the Book of Acts has never closed, because the church era has not ended. Instead, it keeps building. I'm not talking about church buildings, because they all will demolish when Jesus Christ will return to the earth to vacuum all the junk away and make it new again as if it would never have been happened. The church, I'm addressing, is a group of people come together to have fellowship and worship the Lord. Acts 2:46-47 says, "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved." (Acts 2:46-47.)
Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." We are not here by accident, because the power of Word of God brought us to the world. Genesis 1:26 says, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." We have the power to speak to the people to have abundant life or death. It's good, but there is a risk involved. If we'd say negative things to our people, we just brake our relationship and kill their joy in life. But the Word of God brings wisdom, instruction, correction to our lives. Most of Americans would admit that they are Christians, yet they would not have time to spend to read His Words. That's sad. Because there are churches in every corner in the United States, people identify themselves as Christians. Yet, when the preacher would ask them if they are born-again, they could not give an answer.
Are you truly born-again into God's family? If you'd say no, you are probably in a good place to begin your life journey with Jesus Christ. I like to encourage you to find some friends, who can encourage you to digging into the Word.
Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14:1-3.)
If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-10, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
