Pastor Steve O’Brien asks, “What’s the big deal? Why is it so important that I do what’s right? Look how many of my family and friends live life like they want to live. The whole world is going to hell in a handbasket. What difference will it make if I’m holy?”
Beloved, knowledge of the Word is not enough! We must believe the word of the Lord and then we must commit to His ways with all our heart soul and strength.
James 1:8 states that a man who doubts must not think that he will receive anything from the Lord. That man is double-minded and unstable in all he does. Our scripture reading comes from 2nd Kings. Listen to the righteous acts of a young king who, with every ounce of his being, believed in the word of the Lord.
