This Ain’t Rocket Science

All day, every day, we are inundated with information.  The internet keeps us up to date, every second.   Virtually any subject can be studied, in depth, with a few well chosen key strokes.  This is not to say that every subject is easy, but it can be easily found and studied.   What is true in the secular realm is true in the spiritual as well.   We have the capacity to study any theological subject and any and every verse in the Bible with books or over the internet.  We are not lacking for information about how to be a good churchman, how to live a godly life, how to pray, how to witness, how to forgive, how to be modest or humble, how to be more assertive or less assertive, how to eat right, how and why we ought to be at rest and how and why we ought to be up and fighting the good fight.   The answers to many of these things are fairly simple.  They are not overly deep or mysterious.  Be humble, pray, give it God, rest in His perfect plan, think well of the other person, think little of yourself, live with eternity in view, believe the promise, heed the threats, turn from evil and do good.  That’s fairly simple isn’t it?  I have found in my own life and in the lives of  others that rarely is our problem information.  Rarely is it that we simply did not know.   Our problem is the all to easy self deception which comes from being hearers of the word and not doers.  It is not the one who knows God’s will, but the one who does God’s will who is blessed.  But you knew that already!
