I hear and see a lot of quotes, but one really grabbed me recently. I heard it on the radio in an old sermon by Adrian Rogers. He was talking about the value of truth and trusting God’s Word as a compass. I’ve been pondering on it ever since. Here it is:
“He who is slave to the compass, is master of the ocean; the rest must sail close to the shore.” – Author Unknown
In a time when western Christianity is heavily influenced by cultural norms, those of us following Christ must hold specifically to the revealed truth in the Bible as our compass. As a believer, I need to learn and do what it says in all of the roles I’m in…as husband, as dad, and in my vocation. There’s nothing like reading the Bible for yourself, and hearing from the Lord. The real truth liberates and you may even find some fresh “wind in your sails”!
“…If you abide in My word, you are my discpiles indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:31b-32 NKJV
