God’s word is like a beacon – a lighthouse for those who are lost in the dark. One thing that a sailor can depend on is that the lighthouse will not change its course. Neither will it change its light. It is constant, dependable and never failing. I see God’s word in this light (no pun intended). The description of God throughout the Scriptures is that He is constant, never changing, an anchor – He is perfect.
Since God is all these things, His desire has been and always will be that we, who profess to know Him, should live holy and separated lives. God’s point of view will never change because His word says so. He will not compromise because His word says so. He won’t take a stand about a certain sin one day and then say it’s OK a few hundred years later. God is constant and never changing.
With that thought in mind, I would like to share some Scripture with you on this very topic. I pray that the Lord would show Himself to you, show His character to you and enlighten you on areas of your life that you may have allowed to slide.
