Day 1 of Fast and prayer
Challenge day 1
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, so that the men of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
This morning God woke me up with seeing the bible and it's pages turning and I heard Him say, "my people don't know my word". This struck me and as I began to pray and think the holy spirit revealed that there is a whole generation of people and another coming up who don't know God's great story. They have never read any of bible, grown up with the children's stories or stepped foot in a church. Churches used to teach the word of God straight from the bible but so many of these over the years left the truth to appeal to the world of people in the audience, inclusiveness and prosperity. They don't know why God sent His son to earth or why He would ultimately die for each of us. They don't have the cornerstone to ground them when their life isn't rainbows and lollipops. This world isn't long, daily more corrupt and evil. Jesus said He is coming soon. We as His people had better ground ourselves in truth and His holy justice which is the word.
The Bible: Book of Instructions Before Leaving Earth!
This book has everything we need to get through life to eternity, to hear those words from our Savior I know we all want to hear, "Good job, good and faithful servant". Instructions for every life scenario, every challenge, triumph, sin, pain, loss, feeling, and smile are in here. We should know our bible inside and out. We should know it so well that when the world spews it's lies we are not deceived, Luke 21:8. We can be alert, brave, stand strong and firm as men of courage with the truth as our lampstand, 1Corinthians 6:13.
