As we begin a new 3-part series today called, God’s Mind on Paper, I thought it would be good to ask ourselves three important personal questions. I’m sharing my personal and candid reflections with you. Do these questions challenge you as well?
1) How bold am I about God’s Word?
Today’s culture is tolerant of so many things, but the Bible doesn’t seem to make that list. If I’m not personally offensive, God’s Word will only help, not hurt.
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable… – 3 Timothy 3:16-17
2) How involved am I in helping God’s Word get translated in every language in every country?
When I think about what will last beyond me, it’s really only two things. People and God’s Word. Both are eternal. These two things capture my heart and attention and therefore get my time.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. – Matthew 24:35
3) How closely do I tie my leadership to God’s truth?
It is vitally important for me to genuinely know how what I think, say and write is connected to God’s Word.
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12
There is a new museum in Washington, DC. If you don’t know about the Museum of the Bible, you need to check it out. Perhaps one day Carol and I will be able to visit this museum. Until then, plan on being a part of our entire series on God’s Mind on Paper.
