A little boy once said to his mum, “Who’s book is this?” The mum replied, “It’s God’s book, the Bible.” Then the boy said, “Well why don’t we return it? We never read it?” Many in the West have several bibles in each house, we have them on apps, online, on cd, dvd & some may still listen in on cassette or video tape! The Purpose of God’s Word is for teaching, rebuking, correcting & training in righteousness, so that every person will be thoroughly equipped for every work. 2 Timothy 3:16. Sadly, many are not taught, rebuked, corrected or trained. We need to study God’s word in private, for self-feeding, & in community for growth. Why don’t you pick up God’s book today?
Brother Andrew from Open Doors, well known from the book, “God’s Smuggler,” took a courageous risk many years ago & started smuggling Bibles into Communist China. He prayed the now famous prayer, “Lord you can make blind eyes see, now make seeing eyes blind.” The guards at the checkpoint didn’t see the bibles in his little V dub beetle, and he started the first of many bible smuggling missions. Open doors now reaches out to many persecuted believers all over the world. What a history maker. From one courageous risk, so many have been reached. They say that Leadership is not just what you accomplish, but what you set in motion. What can you do today to make history?
An old Chinese pastor once said, “There are 3 kinds of christians. Some who have the bible but don’t read it, they don’t count. Some who read the bible & don’t live it out, they don’t count. And there are those who read the bible and live it out, those are the ones who count. We have a lot to learn from Chinese Christians, they have seen incredible revival in the midst of persecution. Another underground Chinese Pastor once said that their churches were raided, their bibles would often be burned by authorities, and their members were imprisoned or worse. But whenever they saw persecution, their underground church would grow. Maybe we should be a little more committed to studying God’s word, and even if we are not persecuted, we should be getting to know the bible, and more importantly, getting to know the God of the bible. Maybe we’d see revival in ourselves, and then it could flow to those around us.
According to the university of Iowa, the average 2 year old child hears 432 negative statements each day, but only 32 positive statements each day. And by the time your kid is in high school he or she will hear an average of 15 negative comments to every one positive! The Bibles says in Ephesians 4:29, don’t use any foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. Let’s choose to speak life today and always look for an opportunity to build others up, not tear them down.
Many people love the icing on the cake. I’ve even seen some kids just eat the icing and leave the cake on the plate. But the way cakes are created, it’s best to eat both, and too much icing is not good for you! Sex is a bit like the icing on the cake. You need the cake with all its flour & eggs and other goodies to make the cake, then the icing on the cake is the final topping. And it’s not the key ingredient. In our relationships, we need to have lots of ingredients to make it successful, and sex is the icing on the cake, after the wedding. Sex has been designed by God for married couples, as a part of a healthy relationship, and in the marriage covenant. And God’s way is always the best way.
Once there was a river that was infested with dangerous crocodiles. People from the nearby village would often be attacked and lose limbs and have terrible scars, and sometimes lives would be lost. But the longstanding tradition of the village was that people would never talk about the crocodiles, it was a taboo subject. Many people see the subject of Sex as a Taboo subject. They have a longstanding tradition that it is never talked about, and sadly many people are never properly educated on the subject. The Bible has lots to say about sex. We should be talking about it in our families, in our churches and in our relationships. Otherwise people will believe what Hollywood & the media & the schoolyard believes. But God’s way is always the best way.
