There are so many things that would want to come and distract us from God’s word. Today, modern convention wants to tell us that God’s word or parts thereof are no longer applicable to life as we know it. But we have to be determined that we will stick with His word, no matter what.
John 8:31 ‘ Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.’
Some people will accept the teachings of Jesus and then when it no longer suits them, they will abandon them. As His disciples we must keep on believing Him. As His disciples we must keep on believing His words. As His disciples we must keep on doing and obeying what He has told us to do. Don’t be distracted by the prevailing trends and ‘hip’ ideas. Don’t be side-tracked by new doctrines or beliefs that pop up with such regularity.
Ephesians 4:14 ‘Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.’
We should not be tossed about or blown about. We should ask ourselves, what dis Jesus say? We must hold to His teaching and His words. It is easy to follow His teachings when everything is going right, but we hold to His words even when we are challenged and facing difficulty. You might say: ‘This is not working for me!’ Don’t let go, but hold to His word.
