Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. --1 Timothy 4:12

What Good is the Bible if We Don't Use It

Now in the title I am not talking about just reading it every now and then or even reading it everyday. I am talking about using its instructions. The Bible gives us instructions, but the Bible is no good to us if we don't use those instructions.

So how do we follow those instructions? Well we can do it the hard way, or we can do it the easy way. The hard way would be to just read those instructions and then move on and do our best to obey them, but the easy way would be to read them, ask Christ to help us follow those commandments and then we won't need to do our best. Christ will work through us and all we'll have to do is let him do the work.

Teens we are like water in a huge pot that sits on the Earth. We are just about to boil over and cover the Earth. To do that though we need to seek hard after the Lord. WE NEED TO FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTION. We are Christs soldiers that are waiting our deployment from Christ, but we aren't (or shouldn't) just sitting waiting. We are training perfecting our works that very soon we will be put out to do.

One last thing. Please don't just put those instructions to use some of the time. Make it a way of life. Live that way. People from other religions probably think that the to us the bible is just a bunch of religious writings. We need to show them that it is our way of life. It is our life.


  1. Praying we will all live it out! Love you!
