THE BIBLE AND YOUR FAITH (2) - MARK 11:23-24

You cannot have an account in a bank where you did not open such an account. That means opening an account is the first thing to do to have a bank account. In Christianity, being born again is tantamount to opening a bank account. At salvation, you automatically open an account with heaven. Jesus is your guarantor and the account has been activated, so you are to withdraw from it. The beauty of this account is that Jesus Christ is the one that credits it to you. And you will be cheating yourself if you do not find out what he has credited the account with by not reading your Bible.
 
If you do not study the Bible and you go to a church where they preach everything but the Bible, you will be living as if there was no account opened for you. You will be living as though nothing is available for you when in the real sense of it everything is available for you. If you have the Bible and you do not open it to read, you are like me who, when I had just got born again, would open my Bible to Psalm 91 and put it under my pillow. It never worked. I would go to sleep terrified and wake up afraid.
 
Carrying the Bible with you while travelling is not what is going to save you from an accident. Putting a cross on your neck is not going to save you from trouble. When Jesus died on the cross, he resurrected and left. He does not want you to go hanging him around on the cross any longer.  What will save you from trouble is your understanding of the Word and putting the Word in your mouth.
 

PRAYERLord, I come against every attack of the enemy against my confession life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
