“There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.”
John 3:18 NLT
People often try to protect themselves from their fears by putting their faith in something they do or have: good deeds, skill or intelligence, money or possessions. But only God can save us from the one thing that we really need to fear—eternal condemnation. We believe in God by recognizing the insufficiency of our own efforts to find salvation and by asking him to do his work in us. When Jesus talks about unbelievers, he means those who reject or ignore him completely, not those who have momentary doubts. (Tyndal Study Bible)
I was listening to a conversation the other day. The kids were saying that’s not right. All they were talking about on how you should treat a girl? The majority of them went to Christian school. So they have a very clear idea about what’s right and wrong. I am not saying that is the only place you can learn these values. But it is an excellent place to do.
I am continuously amazed how society does not want to acknowledge Christianity. At least I should say South African society. They banned it from schools, Yet it is the basis of all moral rules and the laws of the world, in some form or other. Is this not the cause of moral decay in our society today?
Think of the workplace Managers and Owners quickly say that there is no place for Christianity here, the work environment. I can’t start to tell you how wrong our society Managers and Owners are. Christianity is the basis of right and wrong. It’s the stuff we should adhere to every day. Take a careful look at the number of professional sportsmen that are Christian. The sports field is their workplace. Why should it be different for us?
Every day, the more knowledge I collect from the Bible in my short walk as a Christian, I am astounded. Take some time and have a look for yourself. My point is we often look for guidance all over the place. I can assure you the direction is all there in the Bible. Consider the scripture above. Just make the right decision. In Bible study last evening these words surfaced.
Worse than being blind is having no vision for your life. Take a moment and consider, not a motivational workshop, we are studying the Bible. It is so motivational. Google and see what the Word of God has to say about Vision. I am so motivated for today, by what, the Bible the Word of God has to say.
“Lord, all the Glory to you. Can we be without you? I thank you, Lord, for Your Word the Bible. Amen.”
