Walking in the Word

Psalm 119

People make a lot of decisions on any given day. Most choices present themselves quickly, leaving little time to weigh pros and cons. So we "go with our gut." However, believers who desire to walk wisely through the perils of this world require something more reliable than flesh-based instinct. We need godly knowledge and principles to guide us, which is why we must meditate on the Word.

I mention meditating on Scripture often in my writing and preaching - and for good reason. The Bible is the key to knowing God and following His will. Believers simply cannot neglect spending time poring over its words. If you want to be certain of God's perspective on an issue, you go to the source book to fill your mind with truth.

All of us have a sort of grid around our minds. It's made up of the principles we were taught as children, the habits we've formed, and the information we accept as true. New knowledge coming our way passes through that grid and is either assimilated or rejected. Think about TV commercials - those persuasive ads full of beautiful people are designed to steal past your mind's defenses. Well, the Devil has the same goal of getting past your grid and gaining a mental and spiritual foothold.

Some of the darts that Satan aims at your mind seem harmless or even good - that's why "going with your gut" is so dangerous. A mental grid plastered with biblical truth is essential for Christians, because it identifies and rejects whatever is sinful, poorly timed, or simply not fit for God's children.

Upcoming Sermon Series:

      In every man's life, there is a cause worth fighting for and a victory worth claiming. What is yours? Discover how to not only prepare for the battles ahead, but more importantly, how to emerge victoriously. It's time to stop playing the role of the nice guy and instead live as The Warrior.
      We will look into: The Warrior's Cause, The Hessitant Warrior, The Wounded Warrior, The Distracted Warrior, and The Passionate Warrior.

Last Week: We concluded our series of Habakkuk, when we looked into Climbing Out of the Dip. Climbing out of the dip requires us to remember what God has done, accept what He is doing, and to trust what He is going to do. When we do that, we get out of that dip and rise to new heights in our walk with God.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week: We will start looking into The Warrior for Father's Day.
