In these present times where any and every type of information is spread out like wildfire, it is easy to be confused with how one should live. As believers of Christ, one of the things we need to establish in our lives is to always immerse ourselves with that one thing that will never fade away. His Word.
God’s Word – the Bible – is the weapon we need to survive these changing, churning, challenging times.
Psalms 1, Verses 1 to 2 says,
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
We must do our very best to read, digest, obey and live out the Word of God.
It is so easy to get drunk in all the aspects of immorality, especially nowadays where the world encourages us to just keep feeding and satisfying our fleshly desires. Entertainment is so easy. Anything can be bought with a swipe of a card. Binge watching and wading and wallowing away precious time and energy is as easy as clicking a single button. We as human beings naturally seek for something that would best meet our needs and wants and to the most convenient way possible. If we are not careful, we can already be drunk in the ways of the world.
In being aware of these things, let’s find ways to redeem our days as they should be lived with the Lord Jesus. In practical ways, let’s make sure to work our salvation out by seeking Him where He is, and communicating with Him constantly, meditating on His Word day and night, worshipping and praising Him and His glorious presence.
By God’s grace, we need to live life knowing that judgement is about to come soon, and swift. We cannot live our lives thinking it will just be fine. That God will forgive us anyway. That Jesus won’t be coming soon. Jesus is coming soon!
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. – 1 Peter 5:8
May the Lord cover and protect us all from the evil schemes of the enemy, in Jesus’ name, Amen. God bless!
