Scripture is The End of Your Search For Life

Daily God Walk for Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of me. – John 5:39

Remember that thing that came in a box that said, “Some assembly required?” When you opened the box it was full of pieces that needed to be put together and there was an instruction booklet there to help you put it together.

I’ve done that before, except I thought I was smart enough to figure it out on my own. Just give me the pieces and I’ll figure out how to make it work. I usually wind up with something that does ok – but it doesn’t work quite right and I always wonder what would have happened if I had followed the instructions and used all of the parts instead of just sticking the left over parts in a drawer somewhere.

Then the thing breaks down; and I complain about the company that produces a lousy product that doesn’t work like it is supposed to and breaks down too often.

Wake Up – we’re the box of pieces and our ego is the one trying to put us together without following the instructions. God has given us a wonderful book of instruction on how to gain eternal, abundant, life. Let’s just follow the instruction.

I have talked to many people whose lives are being controlled by addictions and as a result they are living in abject poverty. Yet, when I talk with them they claim to be walking with God. The saddest part of that is they could be living the abundant blessed life if they would only search the scripture to see what it says and follow it.

Prayer:  OK Lord. I think I finally get it. Today I will follow the instructions in the book. Grant me the grace of faith to trust you. In Your name, amen.
