CHRISTIAN .. WAKE UP – It’s Time For God’s Perfect Book
Even in this super-technological age of all kinds of inventions, technology, androids and I-Phones and other marvels – there are still many people who suffer a deficiency – this is exposed by a telltale sign: a flashing “12:00” on the oven clock. Isn’t it odd that a person can operate a motor vehicle .. microwave an entire meal in three minutes … navigate through the Internet’s information super-highway .. and yet not know how to set a simple clock?
Is the solution so complicated? Is the answer to this riddle so deeply hidden that only a few brave souls dare to seek it out?
No, of course not! There’s only one reason why this technical tip-off is so common: people do not read the instruction book. When we purchase a new gizmo or appliance, we always find within the package an instruction book. And what does this book contain? It has all the answers we need to get the most out of our new purchase.
Do you realize the Christian life is like that too? Scripture declares that when a person comes to faith in Jesus Christ, he or she is a “new creation” (2 Cor. 5:17 NIV). To get the most out of our new life, we are given an instruction book: the Bible. This is far more than a simple guide that teaches how to act or what to say; this Book tells us exactly how to live a life that is pleasing to God.
