“As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.” – Psalm 18:30
Since COVID-19 invaded our world, most of us have been following the advice of scientists, doctors, and governmental agencies. When they said, “do not wear masks,” we did not wear them. When they changed their minds and said, “wear masks,” we began wearing them. They speak; we act. Their life-saving advice is worth heeding, but the protocols are constantly changing.
Don’t you wish there was a source for accurate and reliable advice that, if followed, would guarantee your survival? The Bible is just that; it is a life-saving manual that has endured for thousands of years. It can preserve your life for eternity if you read what it says, believe it, and follow it. But how can you follow God’s Word if you do not understand what you are reading?
Before I accepted Jesus Christ into my life, reading the Bible was like reading another language. I quit trying to read it because I could not understand it. I needed a teacher! Here is what the Bible says about those who do not have the Holy Spirit as their teacher: “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:14).
That described me! Does it describe you? Do you want the Holy Spirit to teach and instruct you in life, both now and for eternity? You must first receive Jesus as your Savior, then the Holy Spirit will come to live in your heart.
