"Know what is Good"
"For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat. Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good."(Job 34:3-4)
"Know what is good". We should be raised in a church that teaches us to know good but in many cases the definition of "good" is confusing, especially in the religious world. In the "World of Religions", good is defined by what someone says you have to do or say this year to be a part of their group. Some people want acceptance so bad that they will almost do anything they are told to be allowed into the "click" or just simply acknowledged by certain people. After being in ministry for several years you begin to notice that religious people go through fads just like the secular system. True Christianity is not a passing fad that changes every few years but a constant and consistent relationship with Jesus Christ that is eternally secured by the Blood of Jesus Christ. "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us."(Hebrews 9:12)
Please notice the word "eternal" in this verse, if its eternal, it last forever without changes of any kind. In order to "know good", you must know the Word of God. I'm amazed at the things people do in the Church at large and call it good. You can call a butterfly a billy goat but it doesn't make a butterfly a billy goat. The Bible clearly defines what is good and we should obtain our knowledge of good from the Word. If you are taught to do certain things to please your religious group then you change groups and they tell you something else is good, in fact what they told you was bad, if you do not know your scriptures, you are going to be as confused as a termite in a yo-yo. Elihu, in the book of Job says we need to know good ourselves!! The unfortunate conclusion of this type of "bounce around" church experience is that you will not have a clue what God expects of you. I talk with so many people that assume they have completely failed God because someone told them so. Are you going to let someone else dictate your life or you going to let the Bible speak into your life?
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."(John 8:32) The choice is yours......
