I've been trying to get more into the Bible for the last couple months, and once I started looking deeper into it I couldn't help but thirst to read more and more. It's become much more enjoyable to get into it as I realized how much of it really applies, and relates. As much as times are different now then back in Jesus' day doesn't make any of it less true. It's always going to hold to it's standards, and that's what I've found that makes it so incredible to me...
Take a minute to actually think about each of these. If you look deeply into them they are quite humbling.
"So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall." 1 Corinthians 10:12
Some verses in the book of The Undying Truth:
Thoughts of Job:
"Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" Job 2:10
"Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can a man be more pure than his Maker?" Job 4:17
"He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted!" Job 5:9
"What is man that you can make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, that you examine him every morning and test him every moment?" Job 7:17-18
"To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his. What he tears down cannot be rebuilt; the man he imprisons cannot be released. If he hold back the waters, there is drought; if he lets them loose they devastate the land. To him belong strength and victory; both deceived and deceiver are his. He leads counselors away stripped and makes fools of judges. He takes off the shackles put on by kings and ties a loincloth around their waist. He leads priest away stripped and overthrows men long established. He silences the lips of trusted advisers and takes away the discernment of elders. He pours contempt on nobles and disarms the mighty. He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the lights. He makes nations great, and destroys them; he enlarges nations, and disperses them. He deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason; he sends them wandering through a trackless waste. They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards." Job 12:13-25
"Who can bring what is pure from the impure? No one!" Job 14:4
Don't act like a Christian. Be one!
Go and serve your King! :)
