SPIRITUALITY

Learn About God

Here are 5 solid reasons for you to learn about God! First, the Word of God is infallible. There is no error in God's Word. The law of the Lord is perfect concerning our soul. The testimony of the Lord is not only infallible it is inerrant. Proverbs 30:5-6, "Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebukes you, and you be found a liar." The purity of His words does not need anything added to it. God warns us not to misrepresent His scripture.

Second, the Word of God is complete. The Bible does not need any new chapters or verses. It is all given to us already. Many cults add their books or commentaries to the Bible. All you need is God's Word because it is the holy Word of God. It is complete. In Revelation 22:18-19, God gives us a warning, "For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

Third, the Word of God is authoritative. The book of Psalms 119:89 says "Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven." The Word of God is the only source for absolute divine authority. This divine authority is for you and me as servants of Jesus Christ. When some say, "I have a word from the Lord for you," write it down, and as you study God's word see if the Lord speaks to you through His Scriptures. Only then will you know if the Lord is truly speaking to you.

Fourth, God's Word is sufficient for all of our needs. We don't need anything else. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 it reads "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." We Christians can be secure in the Lord by studying the Bible because it is God's plan for our life.

Fifth, the Word of God will accomplish what it promises. If God told you something will happen, and you wait, it will happen. In Isaiah 55:11 it says, "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." God sent His word to accomplish His perfect will in our lives. If God makes a promise to you He will fulfill it in His own time. There are so many promises given to us in the Bible. These promises reassure us and bring comfort to our lives in our times of trial. I challenge you to take time to study the Word of God. The Lord will show you wonderful things that will change your life! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://escapethewilderness.com/ and see what they are saying!

Practice The Word

It is important to remember that we are to study the Scriptures to seek and know Jesus as our source of eternal life. The power of understanding what the Scriptures say is not for knowledge only but because they testify of Jesus. The Pharisees knew about Jesus, but they missed the very point of why God gave them prophetic Scripture. They were blinded by self-righteous knowledge. Remember, excellent Bible study should always humble us and remind us of the limitless perfections of God’s nature and attributes. We should NEVER be impressed with how much we know intellectually about the Bible. We study that we may intimately abide in our relationship with Jesus. For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.ministrymaker.com/benefits-of-the-word-of-god and see what they are saying!

Fellowship Often

Getting together with others to practice the word is powerful! The bible tells us about fellowship! According to the scripture, fellowship is not an optional matter for believers. It says, “if walk in the light [in fellowship with God] ... this causes us to have fellowship with one another.” And from the outcome of this fellowship, “the blood of Jesus, His Son, cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). This idea of fellowship is twofold: First, because each believer has the indwelling of Christ's Spirit, we all share (KOINONIA) a common unseen spiritual relationship with each other, even those we've never met. In this sense, the blood of Jesus cleanses all believers from sin because of our faith and spiritual connection to Christ... which also connects us to all other believers. Secondly, the fellowship also refers to the tangible act of coming together in one place with other believers, to share (KOINONIA) together by interacting, praying, and worshipping God. This "practice" of coming together in fellowship, continues that cleansing and refining process through our relationship with Christ and His body of believers! There has never been a better time to fellowship my friends! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.claytonvalleychurch.com/walking-closer-with-god/post/18-benefits-of-christian-fellowship and see what they are saying!

Forgiveness

To forgive is to truly live!  Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Mark 11:25 reads, And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” “Whether it’s a simple spat with your spouse or long-held resentment toward a family member or friend, unresolved conflict can go deeper than you may realize, it may even be affecting your physical health. The good news: Studies have found that the act of forgiveness can reap huge rewards for your health, lowering the risk of a heart attack; improving cholesterol levels and sleep; and reducing pain, blood pressure, and levels of anxiety, depression, and stress. And research points to an increase in the forgiveness-health connection as you age.” Acts 13:38-39 reads… therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses. Matthew 18:21-22 reads…  Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times." Learning to forgive others will greatly benefit you in more ways than you can fathom! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://faithisland.org/faith/why-forgiveness-is-so-important/ and see what they are saying!
