“Wisdom to Live By!”
GOD is real!!! The God who created the universe, including the earth and the solar system in which this planet exists, holds all things in His hands and sees all things and knows all things. Yet, “the fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God!’” (Psalm 14:1). Rejecting the God who created them, people fashion for themselves other “gods,” mere ideas of some being or some “force” they can control or who will reward them for their “good” behavior. Refusing to confess their sin and their need for redemption, these foolishly live in the chaos of their minds and the world they have created, experiencing over and over again the self-destructive power of spiritual death. You see it in people, in families, in communities and nations. Where is the cure for what ails the human race? “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight” (Proverbs 9:10). By God’s grace to His chosen ones, He reveals Himself through His Word and opens our minds to receive the truth about Him and about ourselves. In His Son, Jesus Christ, God removed the barrier of sin and by the pouring out of His Spirit He empowers believers to seek truth, to learn truth, to know truth and then to live truth! We who believe are WISE, not because we know everything we need to know, but rather, because God is at work in us to give us the desire to learn and to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. By His amazing grace we are being conformed to the image of His Son, that we may be like Him, living in obedience to our Father’s commands and experiencing the joy of His presence. JESUS makes the difference!!!
