This will be a really quick thought, but I think it’s important!
We live in a culture that appears to have a hatred for the Word of God. Sadly, even church culture is following this path.
A report shows 57% of ‘evangelicals’ think that salvation can be found through religions other than Christianity. Yes you read that correct. That’s more than HALF! It’s no wonder that the culture war that is happening in our world is being lost by Christ followers. We don’t even believe our own message. The ones who should be championing the message of the Gospel are Christians…we should not be challenging that message. Shame on us for doing that!
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Heb. 4:12).
The reason we don’t want to believe our own message is because that message tells us we are broken, and we don’t like being told that. But in all reality, that message is so good because we are not left in a state of brokenness. Jesus has come to seek and save that which is lost (broken). Now that’s GOOD NEWS!
We need to be chasing after what Jesus says and cling to that WORD and stop trying to trust in everything else that is happening in our culture. He is all that matters!
