This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green explores Living by the Book by Howard and William Hendricks that will help us better examine our hearts by the word of God.
Do you know as much about the Bible for your spiritual growth and security as you do about your job, whether in the workplace of business or in the home caring for family?
Have you succumbed to the current culture of social media to get your quick fix for information?
Can you explain the convictions of your belief system and biblical world view?
Can you defend why and what you believe from the Scriptures and how they are sufficient for all aspects of life?
If you answered yes to these questions, then you have strong character traits of Living By the Book. If not, then this outline will get you started on the right path if you are willing to be a student of the Word and not just a casual observer.
Most Christians are so earthbound in their thinking and wanting to get “spoon-fed” by others. They wonder why they do not retain the Truth when they hear it. We need to examine our hearts as to where Jesus Christ is as our first love. If other projects or people, including self come first, then our being grounded to face the difficult days and to serve as life, light, and love will be hindered. The result is that we will be damaged and we will damage others as we are all one Body.
Ask the Father to give you His heart for the wisdom to know Him through Living By the Book.
