When it comes to the truth, we look to the Word of God no matter what! The Bible is inerrant, or incapable of being wrong so that makes it the truth. When we truly base our lives on the truth and what’s right instead of who’s right, that‘s when it will start to make us free...free from our well deserved punishment for sin!! It’s a process because the Bible said in John the third chapter and the sixteenth verse that whosoever BELIEVETH, the continuation of when you first believe.
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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I believe every word in the Bible to be the truth! It is also the living Word and is most relevant in times like we are experiencing now. We must all know that the Bible is full of things about the past, the present and the future. Jesus said, “take my yoke upon you and learn of me.” There are different levels of learning who Christ really is. This comes through knowledge, in fact; knowledge is the result of learning.
In Ephesians the fourth chapter and verses 11-16, Paul wrote this sentence, all this is one SENTENCE! This was his passion!
”Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the KNOWLEDGE of the Son of God”
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the KNOWLEDGE of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Believe it or not, everyone doesn’t read this passage and learn and believe the same thing. Men and women have always used God’s Word for personal gain and they always will. Sometimes even when used with the best of intention, we somehow get it wrong. However, the true “knowledge,” will never be wrong. I pray that we could all join in prayer so we can all get to the place God wants us each as individuals to be.
I love you all dearly and please know that the leadership of the church is in much prayer for our churches, our communities, our nation and nations across the globe. God’s people will always have provision..as in the above passage,
“every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.“
He is an ever present help in time of need!
