It's time! Time to get back into our Bible reading groove! I am really excited about these three books we will be reading. Please be praying that the Holy Spirit will open up your mind to receive all that He wants to show you through His word. Today I am praying for you ladies. The past two days I have been going through some tough stuff and I appreciate how all of you have wrapped me up in your prayers. Ladies, you inspire me and I am learning so much from all of you.
In this day and age, it is important for us as Christians to stand on solid ground. We have to know the truth. We have to know what is theologically correct. The book of John will help us in the days to come. It's the foundation of our faith. I am so glad we started with that book. With so much hype currently centered on "The DaVinci Code", it is a must for all of us to know where we stand. The book is fiction, the movie is fiction. However, many will believe it's message. Paul warns us in Galatians. 1:6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who in his love and mercy called you to share the eternal life he gives through Christ. You are already following a different way 7that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who twist and change the truth concerning Christ. 8Let God's curse fall on anyone, including myself, who preaches any other message than the one we told you about. Even if an angel comes from heaven and preaches any other message, let him be forever cursed. 9I will say it again: If anyone preaches any other gospel than the one you welcomed, let God's curse fall upon that person.
I have sat under preaching that I knew was not theologically correct. Many teachers, Pastors and Evangelists teach and preach things that are false. We can never completely trust Man's thoughts. It's like this with my blog. You can not take my commentary as the gospel. I always pray that the Holy Spirit will guide me in my typing. May I never distort God's Word. But again I am human being. We must pray for those in leadership or those that we receive teaching from. I have had Pastors before that I knew were not spending time with Jesus on a daily basis. I don't want a Pastor that is not chasing after my Lord. How about you? We must pray about teaching that we receive. Is it truth?
Our world is full of false prophets, teachers, radio and tv preachers and more! They are in our churches. There are more out there than you think. We must be careful. Listen for the Holy Spirit, He will always guide you in the truth.
Father, I pray that you will expose those that are teaching and preaching their own agenda. I pray that you will put a burning desire in our Pastors to spend time with you so they will be able to teach us the TRUTH. Remind us to pray for them. They need our prayers. Lord please give us ears to hear truth. Give us eyes to see it! Please protect us from false teaching. May we dig deep in your word so we will know the truth. Protect us from being fooled! Thank you Lord for your Word. I pray that you will help all of us women reading Galatians, Ephesians and Philippians to stay committed to this study. Please protect our minds, our bodies, our families. Lord, we need you. I need you! I can't do anything without you! I love you Lord, Jesus.
