So, how do we truly make the most of our time, how do we truly walk as wise men/women in our world today? The answer is really pretty simply, just obey our God in every way! In spite of all the changes that have occurred in our world, in our society and even in our own personal lives, there is one thing that has never changed and that is God’s will for us. We must obey Him and put Him first above everything in this world. Jesus stated it very plainly in Matthew 6:33 where He said, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.” The Devil does everything he can in every way to get us involved in worldly things to the point we put them first ahead of God. We talked about this in our lesson last Lord’s Day when we asked “Is the Devil A Fool?” Brethren, we must be on the alert to all of the Devil’s schemes and all he will do to draw us away from our God. We can overcome, we can win and save our souls eternally if we will but listen to our God and nothing and no one else. If the Devil can’t get us away from God by getting us involved in fun, good things, then he will attack us with horrible, bad things hoping we will blame God instead of him.
Today, we will begin a study of the book of Revelation in the auditorium Bible class. The whole point of this letter written to the seven congregations in Asia is to prepare them for some really bad things they are about to suffer. They are going to be persecuted in some horrible ways and the Lord sends them this letter by means of the apostle John to prepare them for what they are about to face. If you have ever really wanted to know more about this great letter I hope you will come and be a part of this class. We will be doing an in depth, verse by verse study of this great letter. Much of what is said to the seven congregations in Asia can apply to all of us in the Lord’s church right now today. The Lord, by means of John, wanted to give them hope and strength to remain faithful regardless of the hard, tough times they were going to face. Brethren, we too, are facing tough times today! Not the same as the recipients of this letter but, still, things are very difficult for Christians today in many different ways. This great letter can be a strength to us right now as well. Join us for this great study!
Until next week, I love you all,
