Thoughts on the Word, Part 1

There are so many parts of the Bible that can be applies to everyday life. All of it, in fact. It’s hard to apply into our lives the standard for perfection that God has given us. But if we don’t, we end up like so many sinners who lived in those times.

Samson – the strongest man alive – was weak. He fell hard for a woman named Delilah of the Philistines. And that led to much pain and suffering not only for himself, but for the entire nation of Israel. He was also captured by the Philistines and tortured. All at the hands of the woman he loved – probably even adored more than God. Delilah.

That’s why our love of man cannot outweigh our love for God. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and He’s capable of all things.  What are we in comparison?

Samson is just one small example of our small, miniscule lives [compared] to the Lord – the Creator.

Ephesians 6: 6, 7

Not with eye-service, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of our God from the heart;

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.

To me this means that we are to serve GOD FIRST. Pleasing man-kind is like doing our utmost to [please] our pets. Without humans to feed them, they would most-likely starve. Or become wild and unlawful in the animal sense of the word.
