The Worldly "Virus"

As Christian believers, we must stand together against some things. So, if you hear anyone saying that A.W. Tozer preaches a good deal that is negative, just smile and agree, “That is because he preaches the Bible!” Here are some of the things we oppose: we are against the many modern idols that have been allowed to creep into the churches; we are against the “unauthorized fire” that is being offered on the altars of the Lord; we are against the modern gods that are being adopted in our sanctuaries. We are against the world’s ways and its false values. We are against the world’s follies and its vain pleasures. We are against this world’s greed and sinful ambitions. We are against this world’s vices and its carnal habits. We believe this spells out clearly the Bible truth of separation. God asks us to stand boldly against anything or anyone who hurts or hinders this New Testament Body of Christians. Where the Church is not healed it will wither. The Word of God is the antibiotic that alone can destroy the virus that would plague the life of the Church!

Verse

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor be put away from you. Ephesians 4:31

Thought

God asks us to stand boldly against anything or anyone who hurts or hinders this New Testament Body of Christians.

Prayer

Lord, help me to stand strong against those things, which Christianity cannot be. Keep me grounded in Your word so that I am inoculated against the world’s diseases.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
