What's Your Take on the Matter?

One of the great fascinations in life is appreciating the many different opinions that people may hold on any number of issues.

It can lead to great discussions around the dinner table about the merits or pitfalls of different points of view.

Political persuasion, religion, sexuality, marriage, parenting, education, sport, international relations, the list is almost endless. Sometimes we agree on matters, sometimes we agree to disagree. Hopefully, we can still be friends at the end of the day.

To whom do you give the last word on a matter?

My encouragement, like Tim in his message last Sunday regarding the Bereans, is for each one of us is to give the Word of God the final say.

The scripture is not just our interpretation on an issue, the thoughts of men, it is God's thoughts on the matter. And His thoughts and ways are so far superior to ours!

2 Peter 1:20-21 says:

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 

As encouraged by Tim last Sunday, let's continue to make the Word of God our authority and final take on all matters pertaining to faith and conduct.

Yours in Christ,

Peter Rogers
