“If this book [the Bible] isn’t open, you should get up and leave.”
That’s what my pastor said this past Sunday while he was preaching out of Ephesians chapter 5. He’s right of course. If you’re sitting in a church and don’t need to open your Bible, head for the nearest emergency exit. You might also want to consider heading for the door if they aren’t using the Bible at your Bible study or Sunday school class.
We need to read, study, memorize and know the Word of God. A proper grasp of it is what can keep us from being deceived by false teachers. It is the Word of God that cuts to the heart of us, convicts us of sin, calls us to repentance and worship and tells us of the glorious hope that can be found in Jesus Christ.
