We live in a mixed-up kind of world in which many people are not at all sure of what they believe or what they ought to believe. Some churches advertise that way—you do not have to believe anything; just be a seeker after truth. Some actually settle for poetry, siding with Edwin Markham who “saw his bright hand sending signals from the sun.” I, for one, never had any such signals from God. We have Bibles everywhere, and the gospel is preached faithfully. Yet men and women seek God in old altars and tombs, in dark and dusty places, and finally wind up believing that God is sending signals from the sun. Some folks get mad at me when I say that this kind of “seeking after truth” needs to be exposed. We need to double our efforts in telling the world that God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth. It must be the Truth of God and the Spirit of God! Far from being an optional luxury in our Christian lives, the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit is a necessity!
We have received . . . that spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given us of God. 1 Corinthians 2:12
We need to double our efforts in telling the world that God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
Lord, give me strength to let people know that You are the only way to salvation. May I be used to point people away from vain attempts at fulfillment.
