Will you dare to be different?
Do you like to be an individual or do you like to go along with the crowd? Most of us are quite individual in our outlook and will stand our ground if we think we are right. Having said that some people don't like to be different and so would rather go along with the crowd.
Recently I came across a lot of people who are not prepared to think for themselves. They follow the current trend in our society to 'rubbish' belief in God and to ridicule the idea that there might be some validity to faith. If you are reading this blog you are probably not one of these people but you may come across them from time to time. Just remember that faith is only as good as the one in whom you trust. This is why it is so important to understand the integrity of the Bible and the historical basis of the facts stated in it.
The Bible states in Psalm 118:8 'It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man'. Incidentally this is the central verse of the whole Bible when you divide it up by the number of chapters and verses - interesting and significant! The Bible also states that it is better that your faith 'should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God'.
Will you dare to be different? Read the word of God, the Bible, today. Start in the New Testament and read the four gospels. Discover the truth concerning the Son of God, Jesus, becoming man and dying 'for the ungodly' - that's all of us, as we did not know God by nature and were disobedient to Him. He, the Lord Jesus, is worthy of your trust as He died to be your Saviour. Pray to Him today, search for Him in prayer and in reading the Bible. Admit your guilt before God and 'call upon the name of the Lord' and you will be saved. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help and I will be delighted to try to help you.
