The Word of God (Part III)
Topic: Word of God
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (II Timothy 4:2 KJV)
As believers in Christ, we suppose to share the Word of God to the people. We are not supposed to keep His Words within ourselves. Not only share the Words to other people, we also need to be ready to give answers to whomever would ask us questions. This is why Paul told believers to be instant in season and out of season.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:14, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." We have job to do while we are living in this earth. Having a job is a part of God's plan for us to do since the beginning of time. In Genesis 2, God gave Adam a job. See, we must understand that God gave Adam and Eve job to multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it. God planted let people to govern the earth. They took responsibilities to take care of the earth, but they also enjoyed doing the job. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve's jobs became harder after they decided to follow the words of serpent (Satan) than God. However, even though our Adam and Eve failed to the serpent's trap, God didn't fail on them and us. He provided us another way to unite with Him. Even though our jobs become harder, God brought His Son, Jesus, to pay our debt of sins, so that we may become His sons and daughters eternally.
So, why do we need to have God's Words every day in our lives?
First, this is not just a religious book, but it fulfills with God's promises to us. Psalms 105:42-44 declares, "For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant. And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness: And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people…" Even though Abraham didn't receive promise from God after 400+ years later, it didn't mean that God had forgotten about him. Apostle Paul said in Romans 4:13, "For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith."
Second, it is our spiritual boot camp handbook. Again, Paul said in Ephesians 4:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Even though we may not feel like if we are in a war zone, we are in a battle against spiritual darkness daily. The ultimate goal for Satan is trying to make us to separate us from God, beginning with minds of children. Satan has accomplished children's minds with using Henry Potter book series that contain magical fantasy and witchcraft. Now, it's on transgender issues, making children to confuse with their identities. We will go more exploration on this in upcoming blogs.
And third, it's a book to guide us to have life. Psalms 1 points out there are two ways for us to live life in this world--God's way or ungodly. There is no third option to live life in this world. Other people, such as former President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Pastor Joel Osteen tried to make people to believe another way to get to Heaven than through Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." There is no other way to get to Heaven. Not through Virgin Mother Mary (Queen Heaven), Allah (god of curse), or any gods, except through Jesus Christ. He is the only Person we need to go through this life and throughout eternality.
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."
