Senior Pastor David McAllister shows us the parallels between interesting aspects of the human body and God’s truth.
Learning about Bones and God’s Truth
Depending on how our bones are shaped, we may be a faster or slower runner, a better or worse swimmer. Our bones also give us the ability to hear both a pin drop and the sound emanating from a large concert speaker.
Bones give us structure that makes us free to move around and live life. When we die, our bones last much longer than the rest of us.
God describes his word as “living and active,” discerning between things that are normally very difficult to discern. It’s very balanced, where we have a lot of freedom to choose how to live our life, but God gives us some very solid principles that help guide us through life – not arbitrary rules. Like our bones, God’s word can be strong and inflexible (Isaiah 40:8), but light and adaptable to our situation (Matthew 11:30).
We do not look at our bones as a helpful option, but as essential. However, more than that – our bones hold our essence of life through our bone marrow. In the same way, God gives us structure, but it also gives us indispensable meaning and purpose in life.
Our lives are more than about living, try to enjoy ourselves, and then dying. God shows us that we are living now in order be ready for and impact other’s eternity – giving a reason to wake up in the morning and continue every day.
To Do This Week:
- Recognize the importance of consistent replenishing of God’s truth in your life and do it.
- Fight the enemy when He tells you God’s truth is a burden – God’s truth frees us.
