We could easily talk for hours about the way things have progressed in the world over the years. Through technology we are more connected to our world than ever before. Before the “cable” generation, we watched three or four channels on the television, received our news from the daily paper, 6 or 11 o'clock news. If we wanted to hear what other people thought about an issue we would read the editorial section of the newspaper. Fast forward to today where we have more channels than anyone could possibly watch on our television. We get our news whenever we want it from 24/7 news channels, our computers, social media,and even our phones. If there is ANYTHING our world does NOT lack, it is the availability of information. Our challenge today is to sort through all the noise and listen to the news that is important, to base our life on CREDIBLE GODLY Instruction. How do we cut through the noise? How do we tune our ears to the frequency where God is broadcasting His life giving truth?
We must be a person of the Word [The Bible]. Much like a mother can hear the cries of their child in a crowded mall, so can God hear us in the midst of our crowded lives. Focusing on God takes work, discipline and determination. God speaks to us in three ways which are prayer, Godly people and most importantly His Word [The Bible]. When all three match up, we can know God is speaking to us. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be in a series entitled, “Person of the Word”. If you would like help in becoming more efficient and equipped in your study of the Bible, I invite you to join us on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.
