If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/jas.1.5.KJV
The best education that you can have in this life can’t be found at a university or a college. It is found in God’s Word. This wonderful book is God’s love letter to humanity! Yes, it was written to the Jewish people by Jewish scholars but it is also a love letter to the rest of us too. If it was only for the Jewish people and nobody else, Jesus wouldn’t have said anything about the “other flocks that I want you to take this gospel to”.
We are the other sheep that He was speaking about…the church. The wisdom that we can gain from God’s Word is the kind that we are supposed to give to others during our lifetime. If you knew that there was a way that could guarantee that everyone you tell about Jesus would give their hearts to Him wouldn’t you tell them? We have been given a present that is worth more than all of the gold and the money in this world and it was given to us without cost. All that we had to do was to believe in Jesus as our Savior…just believe in Him for your salvation. Why shouldn’t we be willing to give it away? It didn’t cost us one penny or one drop of our blood but it did cost Jesus His life and His blood and He would’ve gone to the cross if there was only one sinner to save.
That is how much God loves each of us! He makes sure that we can know Him by reading and studying His Word. God never gives up on us unless we keep pushing Him away and telling His Holy Spirit to leave us alone. When you come to the point of knowing Who you need and what you need to do and then you turn away from Him, you may never come to that point in your spiritual life again.
We are at the point in history and prophecy where the age of grace, the church age, is about to come to an end. There is very little, if anything, that has to happen before the Trumpet sounds and calls ALL believers home to Him. I pray that every person who reads this post will seek out their Savior in Jesus Christ. Time is short so don’t wait.
