God’s Truth Incarnated
by Charles R. Swindoll
The commandment is a lamp
and the teaching is light; and reproofs
for discipline are the way of life.
The tyranny of the urgent will always out-shout the essential nature of the important . . . if we let it.
We have to determine not to let that happen. The secret is establishing personal priorities. I have suggested four:
- Set a firm foundation—be biblical.
- Apply the truth of the Scriptures—be authentic.
- Develop a compassionate attitude—be gracious.
- Stay current, always up to date—be relevant.
As we begin to do this, Christianity becomes something that is absorbed, not just worn. It is more than believed; it is incarnated.
And if there is anything that will catch the attention of preoccupied people fighting the fires of the urgent, it is God's truth incarnated. It happened in the first century and it can happen in the twenty-first. Even in an aimless world
