October 21, 2017 CHOOSE GOD
So many opinions in this world today. People don’t have to believe all they hear. In fact, it is impossible to believe all we hear because everyone contradicts one another. It is just a mess of confusion when we try to hear everyone and believe what they say. It seems those who are the proudest are the loudest. They want us to go along with their way of thinking and believe everyone else is wrong. When we look at the world’s point of view, we will remain confused. That is why we need to choose to belong to God. We need to listen to the word of God and know His word is always truth.
1 John 4:5 “Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them.” (NLT)
1. Write about what this world says.
2. List the things people choose to believe.
3. Know God’s word is all you need.
4. Choose to believe only in God and His word.
Dear Lord, we know there is a mass confusion of communication in this world today. There are those who are proud and want to speak out loudly about what they believe. There are those who are so wrapped up in what the world is doing they have forgotten about You. Help us, Lord, to focus only on You and Your word. We want to only listen to You and know we belong to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
If we choose God over choosing this world, we will be happier in it.
God’s word is true. Man’s word is of this world. We have a choice of who we believe.
The ways of the world are confusing and will lead us down the wrong path.
When we choose to listen to the world, we will continue to listen to things that will lead us away from God.
God wants us to listen to only Him and choose to belong to Him.
John 8:47 “Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.” (NLT)
If we belong to God, we will want to humbly and gladly listen to Him rather than the world.
