There are four groups of Christians you can find in the church now:
Group I: “I like the Bible” group
Group II: “I read the Bible” group
Group III: “I study the Bible” group
Group IV: “I obey the Bible” group
The ones that are standing when others are falling are the ones that are obeying the Bible. The Bible is given you to obey it and shape your life right. The main generation of human beings on the stage of life at every point in time is the generation between 15 and 40 years in the world. Unfortunately, people currently in this category already have a view of the Bible as outdated on current issues. Although this is entrenched in the Western world, it is already coming to Africa. The most dangerous position this group of people is taking now is that they don’t consider the Bible as the source of truth any longer.
I once watched an interview conducted with a scientist that wanted to study the meteor. This scientist wanted to find out what happened in meteors and how they operate so that they could trace how we got on earth as human beings. When I heard this, the Holy Spirit touched my heart with an illustration.
Imagine two people saw two chairs and they didn’t know who put them there but the rest of the people there knew who did and told them, the person that put the chairs there also came and confirmed the information but they still said they didn’t believe and insisted they would find out how the chairs got there. If they begin to study chairs in a bid to find out how those two chairs got to where they were, what do you think the people there would think? Why did the scientist say he wanted to trace how we got here? He simply didn’t want to accept the Bible’s opinion on how we got here.
PRAYER: Lord, I make a commitment to daily study and obey Your word. I receive the Bible as my manual for daily living in Jesus’ name. Amen!
