Scriptural Readings: III John 1:11
Wonderful things happen everyday. The sad thing is that we completely missed out all these things because we are too busy on things we do. One reason that we should appreciate these things around us is that God is telling us something. We could be serious with our relationship with God but sometimes we miss the whole point what God is telling us because we have something else besides God’s will. God communicates with us in many ways and that is why we should be having a prayerful life.
We always need guidance. Just as we know that our children need our guidance and so does our Father in Heaven to us.
Even if we do the best we can in our spiritual lives we still end up lost and struggling for the truth.
III John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
The reason that sometimes we are lost is that we succumb to our evil desires. The instruction is plain and simple. We have to follow that which is good. The whole year through is filled up with things that would entice or attract us to do evil things. We all know that we are always attracted and enticed with evil desires and if this thing happened, we lose the voice that is guiding us. Again the passage tells us that we have the knowledge and we know exactly by heart that which is evil and these things which are of evil in nature is the exact opposite of that which is good and he that do good things is of God.
So in other words, if we follow that which is evil, we have not seen God and this also means that we are at a lost and to follow that which is good is of God. Plain and simple.
Our God is a loving God. Our Father in Heaven loves to bless us. Jesus our Lord and savior is always there on the right hand of our Father for us and the Holy Spirit never let us down and comforts us always. It is plain and simple, it is impossible to miss a simple and plain instruction…. to follow that which is good. How can we miss it.
