Silence Is Golden
We have all heard the sayings:
“Better seen than heard”
“I’d rather see a sermon, than hear a sermon.”
I understand the thinking behind those statements, but as
Christians is it possible that we have been too silent, too long?
We live in a very “noisy” world. Unfortunately, most of the noise
we hear is not uplifting or right in the eyes of the Lord.
In our Bible class the other night we were reading these words out
of Ephesians 5:3-5: “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness,
let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness,
nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which is not fitting, but rather giving
of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous
man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.”
I wondered in our world what would happen to someone who told people that
today and Paul is speaking to those who were in the church in Ephesus. We
have become so afraid in our world of offending someone that too often we
Jesus said this in Matthew 10:28: “And do not fear those who kill the body but
cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and
body in hell.”
The biggest problem in our world today is not North Korea, Iran, or Russia.
The biggest problem we have to deal with is the problem that has always been
mankind’s biggest problem SIN.
I am reading a book called “The Cost Of Our Silence” by David Fiorazo and in
it he talks about the early founding fathers of America and what they said about
God and the Bible. They wanted God and the Bible in this country. But today
we hear so much about separation of church and state and it is used not the
way it was meant by Thomas Jefferson.
“The church must be separate from the state…politics do not belong in the church”
do you know who said that? Not Thomas Jefferson, but Adolph Hitler in 1937.
May we as God’s people not be silent, but be the ambassadors He meant us to be.
As always appreciate comments.
Our God Is Able – He Will Not Fail
This is our theme for 2018.
We serve a God who never breaks a promise.
Who is able to do more than we can ever think or imagine.
A God who can deliver us from any situation we find ourselves in.
There is no one else who is able to do what He can.
Would you join us as we go through this year looking at the
God who loves us, created us and wants us to serve Him.
Our God is able!!
The Lord has blessed us with the opportunity
to help those who may need a ride to worship.
