When you live this life according to the ways God gave us to live, there is great reward. After all, He is the Creator and Designer and knows how it all works best. These ways, His ways, are available to every single person for the apprehending.
“Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.”
Do you ever think of all the time we spend disproportionately on so many things in comparison to the things of God? The Scriptures He gave us which are full of wisdom and life. His power available to us thru the Holy Spirit for the seeking and obtaining.
But we spend so much effort, money, and time on lesser things. On developing weapons to kill masses of people. On films to entertain. On drugs to do what God designed our bodies to do for themselves. On sending things into space. On watching tv. On faster, smarter phones. On being right. Meanwhile the world is depressed, starving, and killing.
Logically, it seems we simply don’t really believe that it’s all true. If Jesus is who He said was, if the Scriptures are actually God’s word to humans, would we not pay careful attention? If an advanced alien ship crash landed on earth, would we not examine the daylights out of it???
The most advanced human being of all time came to earth and showed us true life, true living. He showed us what is the end of all things. If you truly believe that, you would gladly become His dedicated student in a heartbeat! You would follow Him above anything else and His teaching would trump every other human’s ever. You would go to Him as the Source for every answer to every question you’d ever have.
If not, it follows that you simply don’t trust Him to be who He says He is. You don’t believe Him to be the end all be all. Our actions flow from our belief.
