Any intelligent person always thoroughly studies the instructions to a valuable machine before they even touch it or attempt to operate it!–And as a result, they save themselves a lot of time and trouble and possible permanent damage to their equipment as well. But those who are too impatient to read the book first or think they already know how to operate it, or don’t want to confess that they need the help of the instruction book, usually have nothing but trouble!
Why struggle through life needlessly when your Creator, your Maker, your Manufacturer, God, has had some men of His write a Maker’s instruction Manual, with definite diagrams and already stated specifications for the complicated business of living and operating your own body, mind and spirit! You could waste an awful lot of time and do an awful lot of damage to yourself and a lot of other people by not taking time to read the Book first, to learn the right way to operate your soul in order to save it for His use without abuse, and get it finally safe to Heaven forever! Don’t take chances!–Read and follow the Book!–Amen?
The pen is mightier than the sword! Men of God have seldom ruled empires but they won worlds of men with their words, faith and ideas which captured hearts, minds, spirits and set them forever free! God’s eternal Kingdom of His Words of life and love have conquered worlds of men’s eternal spirits, far greater, longer-lasting and happier than man’s mere worldly empires of the sword!
The words of God’s prophets have crossed the ages and swept around the Earth and changed the course of nations! The words of their ideals have changed the hearts of men and given hopes for a better world! It’s the Bible that’s built great Christian Empires and saved millions from hopeless, Christless tombs and given the Love of God through Jesus to a world dying for His Love! His Words are Spirit and they are life (Jn.6:63). Without them everything would be totally dead.
This is the most powerful weapon in the world, the Word of God. It can do more than split atoms! It can change hearts and no atom bomb has done that yet. It can change minds, but no number of bullets have ever done that. That’s what the words of love can do, they change the hearts of men!
HOW CAN I KNOW WHAT GOD’S WILL IS?
漢語版本在英語版本之下! – Chinese version below English.
Every one of us has countless decisions which we must face every day of our lives. Every time of conflict, of testing and trial is a time of DECISION. But the point is, HOW do you make your decisions? How can you KNOW you are making the right ones, those which will bring the best results and help you achieve your goals?
Putting it simply, for true Christians, MAKING A DECISION IS ACTUALLY FINDING OUT WHAT GOD’S WILL IS; what God knows will be best according to how HE sees the situation. After all, only GOD is way out there in FRONT, and only He knows what is going to happen, and only He is able to lead us.
But the worst thing in the World to do is to keep going ahead when you don’t know what to do. That was the tragic mistake of so many of history’s failures who thought they didn’t need the Lord’s direction. Sooner or later it always proves true that those who SUCCEED in God’s Kingdom are those who look to God’s WORD to lead them, and the ones who fail are those who go without it.
