Ipod God

 

“We do not have an Ipod God. His truths are not meant to be shuffled around and skipped when we don’t particularly care for them.”

 

 

I love this quote I heard preached in a message yesterday. How true!

Truth is not relative. I’s not selective. It doesn’t change from person to person. We take the whole truth, or none of it. The Lord never intended for us to pick and choose which passages of His Word we would take to heart, and which we would choose to ignore. He intended for ALL of it to be heard… and lived.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Heb. 4:12)

His Word is reliable. It never changes. It stands forever. I’m grateful to have something I can count on in this world where nothing seems stable.

Besides, who wants a God that can be manipulated and contained? My God is sovereign. He’s in control. And I, for one, am happy of that.
