Learn  From Me

Everybody knows  there are people  in this world  whose word  cannot be trusted.     They might have attained  the status  of top leadership  in the country,  they might be very wealthy,  they might be considered very intellectual,  they might be spiritual leaders  —  whatever the case  may be,  it is noted,  often by their deeds,  that their word  should not be trusted.

Some people  use their words  to gain political power  over others;  some use words  to illegally gain wealth;  some use words  to intimidate others  with their supposed  “knowledge”;  and there are false spiritual leaders,  who desire  to rule over others spiritually  with their words.

It’s the false spiritual leaders  that can lead people  to eternal death.

With the Internet,  TV,  radio,  books,  newspapers, etc.,  each belief system  is trying to spread  what they claim  is the absolute truth.     What in the world  should we believe  —  if anything?

Most belief systems  can almost  be seen  as agreeing  quite a bit  on what is  “good”  behavior.     So does it matter  which one we  “prefer”?     Many will say  it does not matter  what you believe,  just so long  as you are sincere  and  “try”  to be good.

But,  God’s word,  the Bible,  totally disagrees  with all that.     Really?

God’s word  is the only  “belief system”,  if you will,  that says  our efforts  to try  and be  “good”  will always fail  because we are all sinners  and will remain sinners  during our whole life  on earth.     Our good works  will never save us.

God’s word  is the only  “belief system”  in which  the promise  of a Savior  from all our sin  was presented  in the very beginning,  was explained  through many different prophets  over thousands  of years,  and was all beautifully fulfilled  in the one man,  Jesus Christ.

Other belief systems  mock the idea  of a  “Savior”  from all  of our sins.     They proudly attest  that we must  each work  our way  to heaven.     But,  the LORD God  is the only One  who says no  —  we can only be saved  as a gift  of His mercy.     That is  a huge difference!

None  of these  other belief systems  has ever been able  to show  that they could fulfill prophecies  over thousands  of years  of time.     None  of their followers  has ever been able  to lead  a sinless life  that could possibly  be good enough  to honestly earn heaven.     Nevertheless,  they claim  to know the way  to heaven.

Various claims  of many  of these different religions  have been made  since  the beginning  of mankind.     Archeology shows us that.     Today,  they are making extreme efforts  to take us away  from our Savior,  Jesus Christ.

As responsible,  loving children  of God,  we need  to check out  His word,  by studying it  every day,  a little  at a time.     Because of our concerns,  Jesus invites us  in Matthew 11:28-30,

Come  to Me,  all who are weary  and heavy laden,  and I will give you rest.     Take My yoke  upon you,  and learn  from Me,  for I am gentle  and humble  in heart;  and you shall find rest  for your souls.     For My yoke  is easy,  and My load  is light.

As we see  that God’s testimony  in the Bible  is trustworthy  and true, we agree  with Psalm 119:160,

The sum  of Your word  is truth,  and every one  of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.

Then,  in peace,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You for giving us  Your eternal word.”

Love,
Margaret
