A Different Look

The word of God produces growth which will cause change in your life, encourage you to persevere in the midst of difficulties, and also compel you to share Christ with the world.

Hi friend and welcome back to another post. If you read last week’s post, I just want to say thank you. I hope the Word of God is making a difference in your life so far.


This week, I want to continue with last week’s theme [about the Word of God], but with a different look (the title for today's post).


I don’t watch the news daily, but I try to at least have some idea of current world events. If any if you are monitoring things as well, you’d agree with me that a lot is going wrong in the world.


I‘m not saying all of this to frighten you; but to simply make you aware of the times we’re in.

Matthew 24:4-14 states: “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” [KJV‬‬]


While the Word of God is important for so many things including, reproof, edification, discernment, growth… it is also important because it can be a reference and an encouragement for us as we go through these unprecedented times; and needs to be shared with the world.

Friend, a pain free life isn’t promised to any of us. In fact, reading the above scriptures show us that the things happening right now are no mistake. They’re God ordained. However, our hope, despite everything happening, the text above promises us two things.

First, is that if we endure to the end, we will be saved. Thank God for that. Second, is that the Word of God will be preached in all of the world. This is where I’d like to focus on today. This is where I'd like you to take a different look with me.

The Bible is telling us that in the last days God’s word will be preached to the world. And in case you are wondering how, I believe this will be accomplished through you and me (God's servants).


You see, because of technology and social media, our generation has been able to communicate more than any other. However, in spite of all this, there’s still a lot of work to be done. There are still millions of people who have never heard about Jesus.


This is where you and I come in; because as Christians, we now have the ability to tell them. We have to spread the good news of His love. The more we read His Word, the more we should want others to know Him and experience His transforming power.


Like I mentioned earlier, while the Word of God should provide personal growth and encouragement, it needs to motivate us to share it with others as well.


Conclusion

This week, pray about ways you can be proactive in sharing God’s word. Share this post with someone; or send someone a Bible Verse. Or better yet, simply share your testimony of how the Word of God has changed your life.

Secondly, please pray that God will lead you to a stranger who needs to hear about Jesus and share the scriptures with them.


Finally, remember that the word of God produces growth which will cause change in your life; encourage you to persevere in the midst of difficulties and also compel you to share Christ with the world. That's the different look I pray you see this week.
