Read the Instructions!  

 

Dear Precious Saints of MBC,
 
I trust you are doing well and looking forward to this coming Lord's Day!
 
This past week I read about a man who wrote into Readers Digest and shared the following. "Our company asks prospective employees to fill out a written application. One question said: In one word, describe your greatest strength. This woman applicant wrote: I'm always faithful to read the directions first."
 
All of us have had the embarrassing experience of failing to read and follow directions. Connie and I have two cars and I'm embarrassed to say I've yet to read the owner's manuals that came with the vehicles.
 
Read the instructions. Such a simple thing to do.  
 
The instruction manual for life on planet earth is the Holy Scriptures.  Contained within is "Everything pertaining to life and godliness." 
If you are a believer, here are some Scriptures for you to read, digest and follow:
 
Psalm 1;  Proverbs 3:5-6 and 5;  Matthew 6:33 and 16:26;  Galatians 2:20 and 6:7-8; Ephesians 4:29-5:2; Philippians 4:13,19; Hebrews 11:6.
 
Those are just a handful of verses that I've found absolutely indispensable for my walk with God.  If you're not familiar with them, check them out.   Obeying them can make all the difference in the world!
 
It's always a good idea to read the manual and follow directions.
 
See you this Sunday,
 
In the light of His glory and grace,
 
Pastor Doug
