Inspirational Monday: Gems From Pastor Jim

CrossProv. 10:14 Wise people treasure knowledge, but the babbling of a fool invites trouble.

How well do you treasure knowledge? When you treasure knowledge, you put great value on it. He who treasures knowledge is not satisfied with what he already knows. He always is pursuing greater understanding. He knows that he does not know all things and has an open mind so that he can learn new things. Learning becomes a very vital part of living.

When you treasure knowledge, you hold onto it. You diligently watch over what you know and understand lest you forget it or it fades in importance in your life. Wise are those who have built a solid foundation of truth in their lives. Wise are those whose quest for knowledge never dies.

Wise are those who once they know and understand truth stand firmly upon it. There are certain things God reveals to us that we will never fully know or understand, but there are certain things that are universally understood amongst God’s children and we must hold fast to those things. God has never added to or taken away from His Word and He never will. What we don’t understand we hold onto by faith and await the day in which the Lord will remove the scales from off our eyes so we can understand.

Wise people do not need to flaunt what they know. Those who are quick to speak often are like babbling fools. They often have not done there studies and speak out on what they think about things and make fools of themselves. It takes time to work out the truths of the Word. It takes careful thought and meditation to discern truth from error. A person who speaks off the top of his head without clear understanding does more harm than good and needs to be quiet.

Wise people treasure knowledge. They are willing to pay the price of thinking for themselves. They are good students of the Word. They are humble in spirit and are willing to rethink things if the Spirit gives them greater understanding. They willingly discard their old ways of thinking as they mature in faith. Wise people do not hinder the work of the Spirit in them to give them proper understanding of the Scriptures.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

Inspirational Monday: Gems From Pastor Jim

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossProv. 9:10 Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in understanding.

To fear the Lord means we respect who He is, we revere Him, we regard Him, and we have a revulsion for sin. I don’t believe there is as much respect for God as there should be in our lives. We have sanitized God and put Him in a neat little box in our lives. We give little thought to God as being holy and demanding of our holiness. We limit Him in our thinking to fit into our comfort zone about Him. We want Him to be all love and not a judge of sin.

Can we really say that we revere the Lord? Are we in awe of Him? Do we humble ourselves in His presence? Do we adore Him? Are we overwhelmed by His majesty and glory? Does His power impress you? Wise are those who can see God for who He is and bow in amazement before Him.

For many of us, we don’t regard God as much as we should. We reserve a certain part of our lives for Him and do not engage Him in the rest. We go about our business with little thought of how the Lord should influence what we do. We focus on Him mainly on the Lord’s Day, and then mainly for just an hour or two. Wise are those who are willing to let the Lord into every area of their lives.

Wise are those who do not like sin and strive to keep it out of their lives. They see sin as repulsive. They understand the nature of sin and how it impacts our lives. Rather than cozying up to it, they strive to stay away from it. When we fear God we are sickened by sin and find it to be revolting.

When we fear the Lord like we should, we gain an understanding of what we need to be like in order to enter into His presence. We understand what we need to do in order to have the Lord be with us in life. We take seriously our relationship with God and pursue holiness in living . When we fear the Lord we can then begin to understand just how wondrous and precious our relationship really is. We also discover just how awful and foreboding life is without Him.

If we don’t fear God, we won’t fear hell. And if we don’t fear hell, we will not see sin as being something to avoid. We will treat sin, and thus God’s grace, lightly.

Inspirational Monday: Gems From Pastor Jim

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossProv. 8:13 All who fear the LORD will hate evil. That is why I hate pride, arrogance, corruption, and perverted speech.

How much do you hate evil? How we feel about evil is reflected in how we live. The more we despise evil, the more we will avoid it and strive to live a holy life. Take a moment and think about how you react when evil rears its ugly head. Do you ignore it? Do you tolerate it? Do you indulge in it? Does it repulse you? Do you try to squash it?

Evil is everywhere we are at. We can’t avoid it and whether or not we think we are, we are doing something about it. We are either participating in it, condoning it, or resisting it. We cannot be neutral about it. If we are in Christ, we do make choices about it all the time. When we let it entertain us we are choosing it instead of righteousness. When we allow it to go on uncontested around us, we are choosing it instead of righteousness. If we truly hated evil, I suspect things would be quite different in our homes, churches and world.

If we are in Christ, we ought to have strong feelings about evil. We should hate all that robs the soul of life and destroys it. We should not tolerate those who blatantly do evil. We may not be able to stop them, but we certainly can resist the urge to join them in their evil. We can speak up when we have the opportunity. We can urge those who do evil to stop and repent. We can all do something instead of sitting by and letting evil go wild around us.

We forfeit our right to complain about it if we are not willing to do something about it. We who are in Christ must resist it. We must be advocates for righteousness. We must be part of the solution and not the problem. God commands us to be lights in the darkness. When we don’t do it, it is sin.

When we have a proper fear of God we will have a proper attitude about evil. We must understand the holiness of God and its impact on how God treats us. God is absolutely holy and He will absolutely judge all sin.
