Test All Things #323

21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)

We examine the fruits and vegetables we eat to be sure they are fresh. We examine the glasses, plates and utensils with which we eat to be sure they are clean. Unfortunately, we are not so quick to examine the Scriptural quality of things. We accept them into our minds and lives with little thought of whether God approves. When was the last time you opened your Bible and examined it to see if what your preacher said is really so? (Read Acts 17:10-12) We must put everything to the test by using God’s word to assess whether or not it is God’s will for our lives. If God’s word approves something, then it is good and we must hold fast to it. If God’s word rejects something as evil, then we must refrain from it. Your faith will be challenged today. Be sure to use God’s word to do what He approves and to flee every evil — “test all things”.
