The Good Seed - Tuesday, June 20, 2017
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2 Timothy 3:7

How wrong we can be in our judgment of people! The elderly man gave the impression of being scruffy, and not only through his clothing. So I did not expect any profound thinking or any lofty aspirations from him. However, he knew the Bible, or certain parts of it at least.
He told me he sought the truth, but where could it be found? I had just told him, “In the Bible.” But he queried whether there weren’t other ways to find it and which translation of the Bible is reliable. And what about the apocrypha? Are they part of the Holy Scripture? Are they the Word of God?
Questions upon questions. After one was answered, the next one followed. Eventually I realised what my opposite number lacked: he refused to believe. He would not decide to commit himself to following Jesus. I recommend that he should pray to God, honestly asking whether He exists and what He wanted of him? To my surprise, he actually promised to do so.
It is important to seek the truth, especially in this age of freedom of opinion. Thousands of voices express their views. But examining every opinion would be a hopeless task. The Word of God states that through the Bible God Himself speaks and reveals Himself to us. Therefore we should read it carefully and examine this claim. Then comes the challenge to our heart. Are we prepared to acknowledge what God’s will is, and then do it? That was the problem for my opposite number. I hope that he understands that.
Today’s reading: Acts 7:43-60
