You Will Never Know It All (Replay)

-------------- snip ---------------
April 27, 2005

Good morning family.

The Word is here!!!!!!!!  You know, the Lord reveals a lot of things to us in the most unthinkable ways sometimes.  It can be one word spoken by another person or a simple rain drop on your window pane.  OK, sorry little poetic but you get my point.  Well, I wanted to share the idea about church folk "knowing it all" (or at least thinking they do).  Lets look at Proverbs 9:9-10.

"(9) Give instruction to a wise man , and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man , and he will increase in learning. (10) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. "

The point that I want to really drive home is that as Church Folk we are never Holier than thou;  meaning, you do not have the right to frown upon anyone or newcomer who arrives in your church.  Whether they come in ranges or in riches, you are not perfect yourself.  From the scripture it tells me that as long as you give instruction a man (or woman ;-) ) will be wiser.  As long as you are living we are always learning in life.  As long as we are living in the word we are always learning the word.  You could read the same scripture 10 times and 5 of those times could reveal to you totally different understandings.

Not even the PASTOR knows everything.  Not to belittle the Pastor's role, but each time  he/she go to bring the word, the Lord has revealed something new to them.  So, no body is perfect and all knowing.  I think this is good news to share with people new to the church and Christ.  This maybe even good news for you!  I can surely say that before I was saved, I thought everyone in the church was suppose to be perfect.  You couldn't make mistakes and heaven forbid a "church administrator" better not get caught doing something ungodly!

In this case, I am happy to say that I was very very wrong.  You will never know it all and neither will the person with whom you share a pew.  What we can do is fear the Lord and continue to be vessels for new knowledge.  As long as we are followers of Christ, we will always be taught something new.

Be Bless Folks!
