Where to find the best advice for life
February 7, 2013
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
If you’re a football fan like me, you’ve seen this situation play out many times: It’s 4th and 1 with just seconds to go on the clock. The next play will determine who wins and who loses. The offense sets up to run the play. Tensions are high and… the whistle blows. Timeout!
So what happened here? Well, the quarterback was getting ready to run a play that could determine the fate of the game. But he saw something in the defense he didn’t like. So he calls timeout and walks over to the sideline to talk to the head coach about the upcoming play. He doesn’t go talk to the water boy or the trainer. He gets advice from the right person!
One of the most destructive things a Christian can do is follow advice that isn’t biblically informed. Oh, it may sound good, but the truth is that following advice based on feelings or emotion can very often dig you into an even deeper hole!
So when you need advice, seek out those who are biblically wise. Don’t let emotion and what sounds good keep you from doing what’s right. The best kind of life is one that’s lived by the Word of God. That’s where real joy is found!
THE BIBLE IS WHERE REAL LIFE IS FOUND. SO SEEK BIBLICAL WISDOM IN TOUGH SITUATIONS, NOT WORLDLY ADVICE BASED ON EMOTIONS.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
