Whenever you buy a new product, you receive an owners manual. This manual tells how to safely operate the product. If the product requires assembly, the manual will give you set-by-step instructions how to assemble. Unfortunately, some people think they can ignore the manual and assemble and operate the product without any consequences.
When God created humanity he gave us a manual on how to live ‘safely.’ The Manual consists of two parts: The Holy Spirit which guides us. John 16:13 and God’s Word Psalms 119:105. When we ignore either, we will have problems.
Sometimes people will ask my advise on a decision and I will tell them what the Bible has to say on the subject. People sometimes tell me they don’t want to hear what the Bible says. It is shocking the number of Christ-followers that refuse to consider living by Biblical principles. Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live. 2 Timothy 3:16.
When you violate a principle of nature, such as gravity, there will be consequences. And when you violate a Biblical principal, intentionally or unintentionally, there will be consequences. It is my belief that most of our problems in life result from a violation of a Biblical principle.
Let’s be people of the Word!
