In a world that keeps changing I sometimes get lost in what is acceptable and right 'today', as it can be quite different to what was right five, twenty, fifty, or two thousand years ago.
Society makes it's own mold by evolving an ever widening brand of right and wrong according to what the majority dictate as normal and acceptable.
The bottom line is that we try to get away with what we want to do and how we want to be in order to avoid adverse consequences or punishments. We want our way to be right.
A key change I've noted over the last couple of decades as a Christian, is the increasing number of fellow believers and denominations who have decided to delete much of God's Word from their vocabulary and lifestyle in order to embrace the views of those who do not know Jesus as Lord and Saviour - even though those beliefs clearly contradict Scripture. They make God small by making themselves of greater authority than His Word.
And I'm sure I've been just as guilty of this as they on many occasions.
With 2014 winding to a close and as the celebration of Jesus' birth draws nigh, will you join me in praying that in the year ahead we take to heart this Scripture and allow the Lord to awaken our spirit to Truth, that we cast off the beliefs which have steered us away from Him, and instead draw closer and closer to Jesus that our minds may be renewed and our vision cleared once more?
You see, it's us that changes, not Him.
I'm praying His unchanging Word is once again my standard for the years I have left in this earthy life, and I know beyond doubt that He will gently help me along the way...
God bless you,
