The Corner

 

Dear Friends,

The Holy Spirit recently impressed upon me the importance of respecting (fearing) God. It is scriptural and keeps us from being a fool, because if you don’t believe in God, you will become a fool.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

God has said there is no preference treatment with Him in that He does not discriminate toward anyone; we are all treated the same and will all have the same judgment upon what we do with the Word.

The Word of God is clear and open, all that’s left is to obey and believe it. A little child may cover his eyes with his hands and say, “You can’t see me now,” and believes you really can’t see him, and that is precisely how so many people are in regards to the Word of God. They don’t believe it and don’t want to acknowledge the many truths found therein.

They may say something silly like “I don’t think God exists because I don’t see him” or “God is love and he would never condemn the way I am living my life.” Whether they realize it or not, they have cut themselves off by their erroneous belief and negated the truths found in the Bible.

The Holy Spirit wants us to understand that the Bible is a fixed point of reference. It is a moral compass designed by God to show our need for Him and to help us draw closer to the Lord. Without a fixed point you will be lead astray by moral relativity and I would urge you not to cut yourself off from truths found in the Bible by saying, “I don’t believe in that.” Check the Word and see what it says. If you have a belief that is different, dig into the Word and find the truth because you will be held accountable. We will all stand before the Lord one day and be judged: what will you hear, praise or rebuke?

Blessings in Christ,

Carole West
