We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"...And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me things. Then he said to me, 'See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.'" -Revelation 22:8-9
We humans have a tendency to fall down and worship the messenger when our minds are blown, as if the messenger created the message. It is not so! Faithful servants point to God. Wicked servants receive the worship, just like Satan. Only One is worthy to be worshipped, God alone. May the Lord help us keep our worship focused on His holiness and not the messenger, no matter how special they are. May the Lord help those of us who are messengers to know our place -- we are the brethren, fellow servants, those who keep the word of the Book. May we always direct our worship to our Father.
