Today God’s word doesn’t seem to hold weight anymore, does it? It’s not hip or in vogue. I would even be so bold to say that some churches have put it in their drawers and started preaching without it.
Yes, you heard me right.
Do. Not. Take. Me. Wrong. I agree we need to love our neighbors and live good lives. It’s crucial. However, we can’t forget God’s word. It holds many truths. Truths we need to stand firm to and live by. Be unashamed.
That’s why He gave it to us. If we don’t, we will crumble just like the man who built his house on sand.
Some may say the Bible is outdated. It’s the opposite.
But it’s hard to read and study, you say? Well, every year publishing companies are coming out with new versions that give you study helps. Zondervan has the new NIV Lifehacks Bible I’m giving away today on this blog (see below for more information). It has practical tools for successful spiritual habits. Here’s a website to give you more information. Click here.
As I wrote this blog and listened to Jim’s song, it brought tears. God’s word is ageless. It always has something new and exciting to teach us.
