“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.” John 5:39-40 NASB.
Be careful where you put your faith.
Look carefully to where your faith for eternity lies. In Jesus’ day, many let their faith slip off of the Word Giver and land on the word given. Without God behind it, the word is nothing.
We, today, see faith slip off of God to many things:
– a continuance of the Old – placing faith in His word instead of in Him;
– in our own righteousness instead of in Him, Who is our righteousness;
– in the church we attend;
– in the strength of our faith;
– in the baptism we receive.
All of these are part of our faith walk, but, apart from Jesus, they are nothing! Make sure that your faith is standing firm on God in all His fullness, not on the things of God.
