The Bible

A few days ago I saw .a video on social media.  You can view it here.  After I finished this one minute video I sat and wept for a moment because of what I saw.  We take for granted so much in life.

I have to ask you something.  How many Bibles do you have in your home?  The best I can figure we have well over a dozen Bibles in our home  This is really nice.  How many of the Bibles that you and I own are covered in dust?  How many are packed away never to be used?  Now we are down where the rubber meets the road.

There is an old bluegrass song that I love titled “Dust On The Bible” and if you listen to the words it can be deeply convicting.  Far too many people look at the Bible as inaccurate and this is far from the truth.  People think is is out dated.  Wrong!  The Bible is a Supernatural Book and should be read and obeyed.  Look at Jeremiah 15:16, “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.”  What is your attitude?

The Bible will change your life and I think this is the reason that people refuse to read It.  They are happy living their life the way it is and they don’t want to upset their own apple cart.  It is high time to upset some apple carts.

So, how are you doing?

How To Hear From the Father

As I was working on some messages for this coming week of being a candidate at two different Churches God impressed upon me the truth of listening to Him.  This is essential if we are going to discern His will in these situations.

He first reminded me of John 10:27, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”  Growing up on the farm we dove cattle different places based upon our needs.  The sheep were led and never driven.  Trying to drive sheep is like trying to nail jello to the wall.  Impossible!

When leading the sheep they will respond to the master’s voice and not a stranger.  This is good counsel for you and I.  We need to listen to the voice of our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ.  Everyone else is just noise.

The next time you are in need of counsel maybe you should take time and listen for the voice of the Father and get your guidance that way.

So, how are you doing?
