*Pastor’s Note: I have been following a great Brother-in-the-Lord, Wally Fry for several years now. He has this awesome group on Facebook called Truth In Palmyra and if you haven’t already checked it out, you need to as it will afford you some tremendous blessings. AND, Wally doesn’t just stop with teaching which he is good at, he as a whole host of other articles, humor, Bible Scriptures/Devotionals and more.
Now, for as long as I have known him, he has never been one for titles. However, I have always taught you are what you do in life, for the Lord or in service to others. Wally is a Bible Teacher, Writer, Expounder on the Word of God, just an all around great servant.
This last week he reposted something that to me is well worth putting on our website and so with his courteous permission, I offer it to you as he did; in three parts, but I will give it to you today, Monday, and Wednesday and Friday. I know you will be blessed; maybe a little convicted (convinced) but you will certainly walk away with some food for thought! Enjoy and God Bless!
Also, please stop by his group and let him know you appreciate his ministry for us as well as for the Lord. While you’re there, check out his other posts. Remember, all these articles are a sacrifice of praise and worship to the Lord! (Yes, even the humor!) Give him a like and some encouragement! Let him know his service is appreciated. God Bless!
Truth In Palmyra By Wally Fry
A While back, I saw a church sign that said, “If you are too busy to read the Bible, you are too busy.” That generated some thoughts, so here they are for your perusal. I have divided this up into several parts, by the way, as word on the street is that nobody wants to read anything that even has 500 words.
How does God feel about Bible reading? Well, here are a few verses that place it pretty high on God’s priority list for Christian lives:
2 Timothy 3:16-17, God Himself literally “breathed out” every single word of Scripture and it is the only guide to faith we need.
Psalm 119:160, God’s Word is true and will last forever.
Matthew 4:4, God’s word is necessary for life, more so than literal bread.
Joshua 1:8, One of the greatest men of the Bible teaches us that if we meditate on God’s Word day and night, we will be rewarded.
2 Timothy 2:15, Here we are simply commanded to study God’s Word and why.
There are many, many more; in combination they clearly prove that God considers the daily reading, studying and meditating on His Word as something He wants Christians to do. To even try to debate that point would be beyond ludicrous, to tell the truth. So, everything in this post is written from that perspective. Why do I say that? Well, because some of what I say might seem to be inflexible to some readers; however, God’s own word teaches that He is pretty inflexible on that point Himself. Agreeing with God on areas He considers important is good policy, frankly.
That’s all for today, Wednesday we will take a look at how folks are really doing daily in this area.
