Would We Be?

If the Bible were written today, how would we be seen in its pages?

Would be found to weep before the Lord in supplication?

Would we lie and manipulate to get our way?

Would we gossip and make false statements about others?

Would we help the poor?

Would we be prone to intercessory prayer?

Would we go to conferences and church meetings to be a blessing, or to display a new dress, etc?

Would we daily study His Word, and apply it to our life?

Would we genuinely love our neighbor?

Would we be a peacemaker?

Would we covet a title or position before just wishing to please God?

Would we worry about finances, and not have trust in His keeping?

Would we forget to pray daily for loved ones that have veered from Truth?

Would we have courage in the face of defeat, as the world knows it?

Would we be found wanting more from the Master, and less from the world?

Would we be a true, born-again Christian?

What's interesting is you can find all those people in the Bible (with the exception of the conference goers) even though it was written hundreds of years ago.

As Bro. James Hughes said, for every situation the Bible has the answer. I want to be really born again.
