The Buffet

Rev 22:18-19 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.  And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

We went to a buffet for lunch yesterday.  It was advertised as a buffet.  The server came to our table and told us what was on it but we didn’t get to look at it for ourselves.  Instead, she would bring us a few choices from the buffet.  So many people treat the Bible, the written word of God, as a buffet.  They’ve heard some of the “menu” selections and, either pick and choose for themselves from what they’ve heard or allow others to pick and choose for them.

We cannot pick and choose from God’s Word what we will accept or apply to our lives.  God does not offer us a buffet in His word.  We must study and learn the entire menu to be able to be rooted deeply in the vine and bear the most fruit.  We must quit saying “that was for a different time,” or “that is for a different religion.”  We must agree with Timothy when he writes, “I’m not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ because it’s the power of God unto salvation.”

Is there an area of the Bible you have been omitting?  Let’s get healthy.  Lets get into the entire Word of God.
