TEXT: PROVERBS 19:2
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
KEY VERSE: ISAIAH 5:13
Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
You need knowledge of the Lord to know who He is. You need the knowledge of the Word of God. Jesus said, teaching them all things. Therefore, you need the knowledge of all doctrines of God. Some Christians say that they are not aware of the last days’ events, but you need it. You need to know what you are supposed to do and what you are not supposed to do. However, mere knowledge of God cannot save but the required power of God to quicken your salvation. In other words, knowledge is not enough; knowledge must be accompanied by power. For example, you can know all business strategies but without money, you cannot carry them out. So is knowledge without power. The knowledge of the things you know should lead you to Jesus.
Sin is a mighty force that requires a stronger power to break it or stop its operations. Therefore, having mere knowledge of something should not puff you up. A sinner may know the doctrine of salvation but he or she is still a sinner because knowledge alone is not enough. Knowledge must lead you to obtain the grace of salvation that is in Christ. The knowledge of doctrinal experience of sanctification may not mean that you have it. You want to teach it, you can even answer questions on it but still you do not possess it. To possess sanctification, power needs to be released from Christ. Hence, salvation is by power and it is only when the power is released, that either salvation or sanctification becomes an experience. Even Satan waits until power is released from what is been told him before he can be defeated.
If you want to be saved, you must possess humility. What a sinner, secret backslider and open backslider needs is humility. If you truly want the blessing of life, you must be humble. Remember that your wisdom, the position you have in Christ is nothing without humility. Sin and Satan cannot be resisted by your personality or inherent powers. Also, know that the number of years of prayers you have spent coming to church or reading the Bible does not necessarily conquer sin in your life; but rather the power of God must be released before you will receive the require/mean salvation. Therefore, everyone in the church must be preached to because sin does not respect anyone. If you say we should not preach to everyone, we may lose some people in the church whom sin has overcome.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Humble yourself to receive salvation and sanctification.
SONG FOR THE DAY: There is power mighty in the Blood
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Numbers 1-2; Mark 3:1-21
