In A Serious Bind

Are you in a terrible bind with your finances or with anything else? The question shouldn’t be how to get out of it but, is the Lord with you? As long as Jesus Christ is in your life, and you are walking according to His will, you are in a better place than someone who has everything going well for him but without God in his life. It is much safer to be in a bind knowing that God is with you than not being in one and not having God by your side.

It is better to go through hell with Jesus by your side than to be in heaven without Him there.

The book of Psalms gives the same idea. Whatever great things you do with your life here on earth and accomplish—without the Lord, it is all worthless.

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain; unless the LORD protects the city, its watchmen stand guard in vain.

Psalm 127:1 BSB

God told Joshua to go to war against the Canaanites and take their lands because they defiled it through all their evil deeds. Joshua was going to put his life on the line with the rest of the Israelites. But, God told him not to worry because He was going to go with him into battle. Even if you would find yourself in a war, as long as you have God with you, you are in a better situation than a guy at home without God in his life.

9 Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 BSB

You see, whatever happens to you in this life, you have nothing to worry about because the Lord is with you. If you die, you will be with Him in heaven, and if you continue to live, He will sustain you. For those without God in their life, the moment they go through something difficult, they won’t be able to get out of it or endure it. Many even kill themselves to get out of it. But a believer has hope, and that hope is Jesus Christ.

Divisions In The Body Of Christ

10 I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree together, so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be united in mind and conviction. 11 My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: Individuals among you are saying, “I follow Paul,” “I follow Apollos,” “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.”

1 Corinthians 1:10-12 BSB

The type of division that Paul was against was the one that causes Christians to separate themselves from the rest of the believers as if they were different Christians. All Christians have the same Holy Spirit. We are all one in Christ. Do you call yourself a Calvinist, a reformed Christian, a Baptist, etc.? Do you look at other Christians who are not in your group as if they were different from you?

If you, being a Christian, call yourself by a title other than a follower of Jesus Christ, then you are worldly.

1 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual, but as worldly—as infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for solid food. In fact, you are still not ready, 3 for you are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and dissension among you, are you not worldly? Are you not walking in the way of man?

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 BSB

Christians are supposed to be united since we all have the same Spirit living inside if indeed we have been born again, through faith in Christ.

Let us not promote someone else’s theology but the one you get from your own Bible study. You might even come to see that it will agree with some theologians, but that’s because both have received it by the Holy Spirit. How do you know if you are truly hearing from the Lord? When you study the Scriptures and come out with the same understanding as most Christians.

If you never read the Scriptures, as to hear from the Lord, then why read? It’s okay to learn from others, but they cannot take the place of the Spirit of God. And, don’t exclude other Christians because they don’t adhere to your favorite theologian.
