“We can sit at the feet of the Lord Jesus and ask Him to instruct us, to teach us what He is like and how to live in a way that pleases Him.”
Nancy DeMoss: Begin at My Sanctuary
“In our seeker-driven mindset, we are more worried about offending visitors than offending God. We are more concerned about people “feeling good” than about their “being right.” We want people to leave feeling good about church, about us, and about themselves–never mind that they have grossly offended a holy God and are under His condemnation and wrath!”
If you were having problems with a piece of software, a lot of people might start offering advice. But if the person who wrote the code appeared, you wouldn’t need all those other opinions. You’d listen to the designer explain the way the software is supposed to work.
That’s just a small picture of God’s ability to choose what’s best for our lives. He designed us and He knows how we’re supposed to function. If you’re a woman, He created you to be a woman. He created men to be men. This was no accident, but part of a good plan.
Because God’s the designer, we need Him to show us how life is supposed to work. We need to find out what role He wants us to play and what actions He wants us to take. The Bible is the instruction manual that shows us how He intended it all to work.
Things work best when they function according to their design, and when we function according to our design, God is glorified.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
