Quote of the Week, 5/11/22

Why this strange indifference to missions? Why these scant contributions? Why does money fail to be forthcoming when approved men and women are asking to be sent to proclaim the ‘unsearchable riches of Christ’ to the heathen?” 

Lottie Moon, missionary to China, – October 3, 1887, Pingtu

Sunday’s Memory Verse, 5/8/22

How Can We Know What Is True?

The diversity of beliefs and ideas in our world today is enough to make your head spin! Something may sound good, but is it true? And how do we know?

The news concerning the possible overthrow of Roe v. Wade this week is a good example. Both sides are adamant that their opinion is right, but no two viewpoints could be more different.

And that’s not all. Even within Christianity, we find differences of opinion on matters of great importance. Certainly, everything that is put forth can’t be true. So how do we know what is right and what is wrong?

There is only one way. And that is to read and study the Bible. I’m not talking about studying books about the Bible (although some of them are good). I am talking about reading and studying God’s Word for yourself.

My pastor recommends using a Bible Reading Plan. There are excellent plans to read the entire Bible in one year. In this way, you can ensure that you are reading all of the Bible. This is vitally important to understanding the whole counsel of God’s Word.

I am most thankful that my pastor encourages personal Bible study. Nothing could be more important in the life of anyone who wants to follow Jesus and live by Truth. We have to take personal responsibility for being a discerning and wise Christian. Sitting in church services is not enough. We must personally study God’s Word.

We can only judge between what is wrong and what is right when we know what God says to be true. We can know this only from Scripture.”

TIM CHALLIES, THE DISCIPLINE OF SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT

God has given the Church a great gift: the Bible. It is the only source of pure Truth. We can trust it. And we must.

In a world where accepting new ideas is so popular and widespread, we have to remember to hold it all before the light of God’s Word.

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17 NIV

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,  so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

“The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.” Psalm 19:7 NIV

“All your words are true;
    all your righteous laws are eternal.” Psalm 119:160 NIV

It is my prayer that we will highly esteem God’s Word and honor it in our lives by obeying Him and trusting His ways as we seek truth in a complicated and diverse world.

With Love, Cindy
