TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:1 Kings 19:11-13; 2 Kings 6:11-17; Matt. 7:20-27; John 6:60-68
KEY VERSE: Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matt.7:21
MESSAGE: For ever, the word of God is SETTLED, established and can neither be subjected to human philosophy nor the pool of popularity. God is Sovereign and His word is immutable.
The word TRENDING refers to the popular opinions of men over an issue, a subject matter etc that gains followership and acceptance by a wide range of people. In social media, it means an issue that currently popular and widely discussed online. Most trending issues are unsubstantiated, unverified and can be likened to a blind man leading a group of other blind men through dangerous terrain made of valleys.
We live in a world with fascinating changes in almost all sectors including religion. But, we are warned and cautioned not to fall prey to any trending fashion, practice and lifestyle that is not in tandem with the scriptures which is our final authority.
THE WORLD AND CHRISTIANS: 1 Cor.2:6-7,12; 2 Cor.6:14-17; Phil.3:18-20
The Bible presents a panoramic view of the system of this world and that of Christians to be on a parallel that does not afford opportunity for the two to meet. Apostle Paul speaking on the back drop of this concept clearly warned.
“And be not conformed to this world ; but be ye transformed by the renewing of of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Rom.12:2
The glitter we see cannot be translated to gold.
Don’t ever attempt or make the mistake of choosing by sight or popularity. Jesus warned His audience when He said
“Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate,and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in there at: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life and A FEW there be that find it.” Matt.7:13-14..
That many people are doing it does not always make it right. Beware!
God bless You.
