Living in His Word
Let me just jump into the middle of my thoughts on how we navigate that rapid changes taking place around us. If what I say is true, that culture or society does not have the authority to interpret Scripture then we must find ourselves in the Scriptures and not in the midst of culture looking in but in the midst of Scripture looking out. So many Christians today find themselves outside of the Scripture trying to understand them rather than where they should be, that is in them (Scripture) getting understanding of what’s happening to culture outside of them. Let me explain. Go to Psalm 1, oh this is so simple.
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
When a Christian comes up with a philosophy that is blatantly in conflict with His word their location is in one of the three stances found in Ps 1:1. They are either walking, standing or sitting with those who are not themselves in Scripture, they are being influence by others around them with different and varying opinions, hearing themselves then saying stating and proclaiming words that seek to interpret the Scriptures to mean something other than what they are plainly saying.
And the solution:
Here’s the truth of their true intended location in God. Verse 2
Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
We must find ourselves in he law of the Lord rather than with those who desire to lord their opinions over us. The secret to this, not only to remain in His word but remain in fellowship with others who dwell in His word. So today keep in contact with like minded people who can encourage you in the Lord, who dwell in the midst of the Word of God, because in it there is life and health and well being.
May He continue as he does to bless you and keep you in Jesus name.
