Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 5:6 NIV

“She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.” Proverbs 5:6 NIV

 

When I disciple a brand-new believer, one of the very first things I have them do is memorize the first five words of the Bible: “In the beginning God created…”  I firmly believe that if that truth owns our soul, we have the ability to get everything else right. That truth leads to the simple fact that God created us; everything about us was originally a gift from the Creator. Sin twisted and cheapened much of those attributes but nonetheless, God is the author of everything at our core. He created us to enjoy. He built our pleasure receptors. The problem comes in when, like the lady in this passage, we allow our desires to drive our journey. When God’s truth and love guide our life, our pleasure will be aligned with His will and it will be guilt free and purely enjoyed at its maximum potential. When driven by motives apart from His plan, it will leave us broken, soiled, and empty. Today, seek God and enjoy life by His perfect design. #BeTheEdge

“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22 NIV
