How are you ever to know the truth? Just read a book on nutrition, childcare, or marriage. Book after book will detail what to do to help in specific areas, yet many of these details are exactly the opposite of each other! How can we know what is true?
It is the same with knowing what is written or said about God…is it true? There is a way to know that…go to God! He will not lead you to something He did not author. Too many are seeking the truth based on culture, religion, opinion, and feelings. All of those areas are broken. We are born with a broken nature, not broken by God but rather as the end result of the disobedience of Adam thus causing the separation from God of humankind. Some hate to hear this, but we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We try to figure God out with something that cannot know Him.
The gospel, the good news about God, salvation and rescue through Jesus and the new and living way taught and lived by Jesus are foolishness to those who are perishing. Are you perishing? Have you given your heart and life to Christ? Or do you just go through the motions? Many are going to church but not many are going to heaven. Where will you go when you die? You best know the truth now, because when you die and meet God face to face, that is one heck of a time to find out you were wrong!
Trust God to get through to you. You will hear Him, not because you are such a good hearer, but because He is such a good speaker! Have that little talk with Jesus…today. Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
