Seeking God’s Heart- by Bryan Shelley

Entry for May 14, 2008

Today’s Verse: Hebrews 5:12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers , you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. NASB

This was me not too very long ago. I had been in churches all my life, yet I was still on milk instead of solid spiritual food. Why is that? We go to church, listen to Bible class lessons, and even open our Bibles occasionally. Yet we couldn’t reason our way into or out of a a paper bag from the perspective of a Biblical discussion. Biblical literacy is a serious problem among even the faithful. I am convinced that is why most Christians are terrified of attempting to share their faith. They don’t have more than a Vacation Bible School understanding themselves. If someone were to ask you today to show them some key Bible passages they could read to help them understand what it means to be a Christian, would you be able to do it? Did I sense a cringe? If that is you, don’t just sit there and feel bad about it, do something positive about it. Get on a Bible reading plan every day. Get you hands on some tracts that have good Bible verses already laid out, or write me and I’ll send you some good studies any Christian could use with anyone. Ever wonder why some people produce more fruit? It is because at some point in their Christian walk they made a decision to dig in and grow. Trust me, it is never too late. God will richly bless your life in a new depth of understanding and relationship with Him. Pick up your Bible and read. Get up off the pew and get in the game.
