For the Master's Use – Day 10


Gleaning Gold

~1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Nuggets of Truth

I enjoy watching the videos at Way of the Master as the interviewers question people on the street about where they will spend eternity. You can see by the expression on their faces that they think the interviewer is a tad nuts. The Word tells us that the preaching of the cross will sound foolish to those who are not born again.

Many believe that the Bible is man’s words and not God’s. Since the preaching of the cross is foolishness to the unbeliever, it is easy to see why the unbelieving world views it this way. But God’s Word are HIS words penned for mankind. They are not the Apostles opinions or the church father’s opinions. Paul tells us that Timothy would share Paul’s words with the church as Paul’s ways were in Christ. He did not want Timothy to teach man’s traditions but those which were in Christ.

~1 Corinthians 4:17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.

God did not use ordinary men to bring His words to mankind. He used holy men – men who lived by faith and God was the center of their lives.

~2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Refining the Gold

So why does mankind close their minds to the Gospel of Jesus Christ? They have heard so much false doctrine that their heads are filled with garbage. They are right where Satan wants them – in total darkness.

2 Peter 2:1-2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

It’s easy to see why there are so many “religions” on this earth and why it is so confusing to the average unbeliever. But we have God’s Holy Word and His Holy Spirit is at the center of guiding the unbeliever to salvation.

~1 Corinthians 2:12-13 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

If all the spiritual leaders of the different “Christian” religions in the world were to follow these verses, there would be no divisions. However, Satan has been busy dividing and causing man to be deceived.
