Plugging Into the Word

One of the better problems with compassionate the Word of God is that we apprehend it with a advertence to our accomplished experiences. Our abridgement of compassionate is anon activated to either how others accept conceived the Word or by our own claimed interpretation. If anyone abroad had a bad acquaintance as a aftereffect of baloney or misinformation, some tend to shy abroad from reentering the Biblical arena. Maybe it was personal, and the Word seemed to accept let them down. No amount the reason, there are a growing amount of airy discontents who do not wish to betrayal themselves to addition roller coaster ride of “churchianity.” The Word has not absent its power, but it has been abbreviate circuited by apprenticed individuals that accept approved to bung into its ability with their own abundance cord. If the Word does not fit their “receiver,” it is ignored.

Spiritual attempt are acceptable scarcer in our Country, and the acumen is that added and added Christians are apathy to accessible their Bibles on a approved basis. If we were to yield a analysis of Believers and ask them how abundant time they absorb in the Word, we would be abashed at the response. An alarming amount of Christians are declining to let their “fingers do the walking through the white pages.” One doesn’t even accept to ask anyone about their alternation with the Word, for the affirmation of non-compliance is aboveboard displayed.

One of the complaints from bloodless Bible readers is that they don’t accept it, or are abashed by abounding translations. Some Christians abide the Bible because of its convicting power. To accept their inconsistencies apparent by the Word is a claiming to their apocryphal faculty of security. A growing amount of Believers affirmation they artlessly don’t accept time to apprehend the Word, let abandoned abstraction it. For those who wish to absolve their abridgement of circadian reading, they affirmation it is not accordant to our anytime alteration society. Mistrust of the Word has become about an epidemic. This usually happens if humans try to fit the Scriptures into their cocky confined agenda.

The Apostle Paul declared that all Scripture is aggressive by God. God Divinely breathed His Word into angelic men, by way of the Angelic Spirit. The Bible is not to be apparent as a history book, but a tutorial book to adviser us through life. The Bible instructs and informs (Doctrine). The Bible brings confidence (Reproof). God’s Word straightens our paths (Correction). The Scriptures babysitter even to the point of antidotal activity (Instruction in Righteousness). (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)

When we absorb ourselves in the around-the-clock Word of God, we will acquisition ourselves getting able and “thoroughly furnished unto all acceptable works.” (II Timothy 3:17) Satan attempts to draw us abroad from the Word of life, while the Angelic Spirit desires to draw us to the Living Word. It is ironic, but Satan knows added of the Word than abounding Believers. He knows how to aberration and angle the Word in such a alert way that biting Christians are fatigued abroad from the Word, or catechism its validity. In the Battle of the Wilderness, Satan approved to use Scripture in such a way that Jesus would acknowledge in a cocky confined manner. (Matthew 4: 6) This tactic is still acclimated by Satan today. The Devil wants humans to adapt the Word so that it serves their abundance area instead of the advised meaning.

We charge to get aback to the arresting Word of God. We charge the “two-edged sword” to abstracted our abundance area from the absoluteness of the Word. (Hebrews 4:12) It is time to reopen our Bibles on a circadian basis. During this time of airy conflict, we charge the “Sword of the Lord” as never before. Let us cull our brand out of the case and with the “Shield of Faith” let us advance to the orders of our Commander and Chief. (Ephesians 6:16,17)
