In these shaky days in which we live, every Christian needs to get a firm grip on the Word of God. What has happened today is that we have gone off into subjectivism, emotional feelings, ecstasies, thoughts and philosophies, rather than standing on the Word of God.
There used to be a time when preachers would say, “The Bible says….”
Then they started saying, “The church says….”
Now they just scratch their heads and say, “Well, it seems to me….”
No, we all need to stand on the infallible Word of God.
We are not to judge things by appearance. We are to live by faith. Faith is the only resource we’re going to have in these days of moral relativism and humanistic philosophy.
The most powerful force on earth is faith. As Habakkuk says, “The just shall live by faith.” (Habakkuk 2:4b). That’s the verse that convicted Martin Luther and caused the Protestant Reformation during the Middle Ages. In these days and in these end times, you need to live by faith.
