God has written His report in His word. We read other reports which are man made. Whose reports will we believe? God’s word was written to reveal His mind to us. His word was sent that we may know the mind of God. He created us and gave us laws to abide by for our good. However man had other ideas and decided to rebel. God has written His report in His word. We read other reports which are man made. Whose reports will we believe? God’s word was written to reveal His mind to us. His word was sent that we may know the mind of God. He created us and gave us laws to abide by for our good. What we see around us of death and destruction is the result of following our own ideas. God had planned that we would live forever but through our own wilfulness rejected His ways. We decided we would run our own lives. The seed of Satan planted in us through rebellion continues to work destruction in us. What is the way out?
We need to get back to following our Creator and His ways. His ways are clearly laid out in the Bible. We can choose to read His written word and obey it or not. We have all been given a choice. When we do what He says, we will reap the fruits of obedience. When we choose to love we will reap love. When we choose to lie, we will become a lie. What we sow we will reap. We are not alone as He sent His own Spirit to help us do what is right. Why then do many choose to do it their way? This is the root of all our problems. Pride entered our heart and pride keeps us from doing what is right. In Romans 7 Paul describes this dilemma very clearly. He says we know what is right to do but do what is wrong.
In these last days God is asking us to choose His ways as recorded in His Word. He promises us an abundant life free from the cares and toils of this world. How is this possible when we live in a world torn apart by differences and lies? We can only do this when we realise we are spirit beings who can live life in the Spirit. God has chosen to make His residence in us. His Kingdom is in us. We can live life like heaven on earth when we live in the Spirit. He has given us eternal life in the spirit. What a solution for man’s fallen state. Now we have to choose daily whom we will follow. Let us choose to follow Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith.
