It is a joy to announce a new featured spot in our monthly newsletter, Biblical Truth for the Soul. In this section, various writers will be engaging our minds with Biblical counseling issues that are pertinent to our everyday lives. You will find this section of our newsletter helpful in addressing certain areas of your life that seem to weigh you down. The goal is to bring forth truth to enable you to think biblically about certain subjects, to give you a way forward in your Christian living. It will give you the ability to apply God’s truth in your everyday life. This section will be thought-provoking and cause you to look to your Bibles as we think about what God wants us to understand about the topics that are discussed instead of the way the “world” wants us to think about life. We all know that in the Garden of Eden, two voices were vying for Adam and Eve’s attention; one was God Himself, desiring what was best for His creation, and the other, the snake, the devil himself, wanting to deceive Adam and Eve into disobeying what God told them to do. Satan planned to drive a wedge between God and man, and he was successful. So it is imperative that we listen to the right voice. That is exactly what we receive when we go to the Bible and have the authoritative, holy, inerrant, and inspired Word teach us what to think and how to act. Using the analogy of a sword, the writer of Hebrews tells us how effective the Word of God is in our lives: “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” The Word of God not only penetrates the “big stuff” in our lives, but it finds its way into the narrow recesses of our hearts. It gets at the root of our heart issues and is sufficient for every area of our life. I am really looking forward to this section being a balm to your soul. Until next time, keep reading your Bibles!
