January 12, 2020: Jesus, the Word of God...
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
How can I tell whether or not something is sinful?
The best way to know whether or not something is sinful is to know the Bible. You need to be immersed in the Word of God.
Those who believed on the Day of Pentecost were babes in Christ. They sat at the Apostles’ feet,
hungry to receive instruction. They relied on the Apostles to communicate to them who Jesus
was and what He had done. They had trusted in the Lord Jesus and now they wanted
to know more! Hence, they persevered, remained constant, and carried on
without wavering in the Apostles' teaching.
"Uniformity of belief concerning the person of Jesus Christ—based on the eyewitness
testimony of the Apostles — was essential. Those who believed on Christ
were nurtured in the faith as they continued to learn the Apostles' doctrine.
They received it, retained it, and acted on its principles." (Adam Clark)
And so must we!
