Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Thought for the Day

We can only do one of two things: Give them Jesus or give them wasted sewage. We can either point the way to the Way or confuse them with a load of things that will never feed their need for God. There is a place for doctrines and dogma and science and history and apologetics, but these things are not Jesus — they are humanly manufactured attempts to make people think that having the right ideas is the same thing as loving and following Jesus. ¬†Carl Medearis

  1. There is a big difference between having ideas, principles and Bible verses in your head and abiding in Christ. There is a big difference between someone who reads about football and someone who actually plays football. A theologian studies God or books about God; a Christian obeys the Lord.

  2. Yes and it is for everyone That Would love to be one of Gods Witnesses .(Proverbs 2:1-9) .a0.a0.My son, if you will rceviee my sayings and treasure up my own commandments with yourself, 2a0so as to pay attention to wisdom with your ear, that you may incline your heart to discernment; 3a0if, moreover, you call out for understanding itself and you give forth your voice for discernment itself, 4a0if you keep seeking for it as for silver, and as for hid treasures you keep searching for it, 5a0in that case you will understand the fear of Jehovah, and you will find the very knowledge of God. 6a0For Jehovah himself gives wisdom; out of his mouth there are knowledge and discernment. 7a0And for the upright ones he will treasure up practical wisdom; for those walking in integrity he is a shield, 8a0by observing the paths of judgment, and he will guard the very way of his loyal ones. 9a0In that case you will understand righteousness and judgment and uprightness, the entire course of what is good.The Watchtower July 15, 2009 page 3
