As I mentioned yesterday the bible has authority because it is the Word of God. However we should also be clear since that is true then if we disobey scripture then we are disobeying God. “If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed.” (2 Thessalonians 3:14 ESV). Just one of many verse that deal with obedience to the Word of God.
On the surface yes we agree in the truths of the Bible, but how many of us read something we don’t like and try to push it off by saying, it doesn’t mean that. Take this command from the Bible from Jesus. Matthew 5:34 “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”. And that is very difficult for many of us to do every day or maybe at all. Yet we should be striving towards that through the grace of Jesus Christ. Let His Word take root in your life and be blessed by it.
