Being a teacher and a preacher of God’s Word is needed today but only if you are called to be one. God qualifies the called according to His Word. Teaching God’s Word and the mystery of salvation to those who are seeking Him is a calling and one that should be taken seriously. Especially today with so many different ideas and doctrines being brought into the church. Being a Christian is hard enough without adding confusion and “man-made” ideas into the mix.
The time that we are living in now is near the end of the “church age” and people need clear leadership in the church. Preaching from God’s Word and teaching the doctrine that Jesus taught to His disciples is the way to go. Man-made wisdom and ideas need to be thrown out of the church and strict adherence to God’s Word should be the rule rather than the exception.
Think of God and His qualities and His abilities. Can you truly do that? I have read through God’s Word so many times over the past decade, yet I can’t comprehend His glory and His majesty from His Word. Comprehending Him is so far above my finite mind because He is so far above us until it is incomprehensible for me or anyone else. Why? Simply put…a drop of water cannot comprehend the vast oceans yet both are made of (mostly) the same element. God is, God was and God always will be God. His Spirit resides in us when we accept Him as our Savior. How? Because He says so.
We cannot know “how” God does the things that He does but by His power and His might the world and the entire cosmos are held together. There are many people who do not want to believe this but since God’s Word says it, I believe it. Belief only saves us when we place that belief in Jesus Christ and since He is our Savior, that settles it for me. I pray that everyone who reads this will turn to Him for their salvation before the day comes when the church is taken away. Will it be possible to be saved through faith after that? Yes, but it will be harder to do. The Holy Spirit will leave with the church but God can save as many as will believe even during the Tribulation to come.
John 3:16-17 says it best: 16For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.…
