Executive Director Tony Cooper muses on important Biblical issues ...
Everything mentioned in the Bible is important. II Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed (inspired) and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” But there are some things that are emphasized. I want to mention four of these.
First, there is the Great Commission mentioned in Matthew 28:18-20. Here, Jesus says that Christians are to share the Gospel with the world. All Christians have a testimony to share. We are to let our lips speak and our life show that the power of the Gospel has changed our life.
Second, you will find the Great Commandment. In Matthew 22:36-40, it says the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. And the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Third mentioned is the Great Confession. In Matthew 16, Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” Peter responded in verse 16 by saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Also, Romans 10:9 says, “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
And fourth, there is what I refer to as the Great Committment. Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him, and He will bless you.”
Let me encourage you to allow these four “great” emphases to influence your life and enhance your spiritual walk.
In His Service,
