Theology Matters …
Choose whom you serve?
Fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt [i.e., this world]. Serve the Lord! … If it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve … as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord | Joshua 24:14-15.
John, the Apostle, tells us to not love the world or the things in the world (1 Jn 2:15). In our modern world culture there is much glitter and glamour to be found so much so that it too has invaded our churches greatly. Whether it is the fanciness of things, the love of objects, the customs & traditions of our holidays, or the revamping of the gospel & bible teaching (Gal. 1:6-9). These things should not be so!
Folks we are Christians! Therefore we need to examine all that we do by Scripture whether in our churches or our lives – public & private. If we find that the “things of the world” are in contrast to the Word of God then we are not to serve them no matter how popular they appear. We have to live in this world but we do not have to adopt this world. As Christians be wise in what you choose to observe and practice. “As for me (Bruce) and my house (Cindy) we will serve the Lord!” House 01

The Mighty Weakness of John Knox – Douglas Bond | This is another book from the series – “A Long Line of Godly Men Profile” by Stephen J. Lawson. This book like the others in the series is a biographical picture of a man used by God to demonstrate His sovereignty and providence in Christendom. John Knox was prominent in establishing the faith throughout Scotland. As in all of the books in this series I recommend that take the time to read of our Christian heroes from the past.
