Basic Principles

Shalam brothers and sisters,
As we seek to break away from our distractions to gain daily improvement we must replace that idleness with discipline. Do not let the word discipline make you feel like it’s going to be an over bearing burden. Since one of the basic principles that we should of learned as babes in this truth is to pick up your Bible and read at least one chapter a day. Isaiah 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.” If you do not have a Bible at home of course you could read from our online King James Version. Last year we posted a message about this resource for you. As we suggested, if you took the time to read a chapter a day by now you would have finished reading a third of the Bible. Although you have this resource you should always have a hard copy with you at all times especially since the internet is not always accessible.

Think of how much free time you really have to read, on the train/bus towards work and returning home. Not to mention during lunch time, and especially when you get home instead of spending hours in front of a TV you could be reading or fellowshipping. No matter how long you been in the Truth or reading the Bible this is something you do not diminish doing. Often I come across brothers and sisters that feel that they have gain enough knowledge that they do not need to continue feeding their souls. They must of skipped over 1st Corinthians 8:1 “…Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.” Verse 2: “And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. Most people do not realize that 1 out 4 Israelites fall off this truth and one of the causes is the cares of the world.

Yesterday we suggested that you take some time away from your schedule to listen to the radio station as we are uploading classes daily (except for the Sabbath). Earlier today in the afternoon we kept our word. Note we will be introducing music again to the radio station some time in the near future. Finally we wanted to let you know of the Spanish online Bible. Therefore if you have any brothers and sisters that are more comfortable in this language you could forward them to this resource. Be encouraged to renew yourself daily. 2nd Corinthians 4:16 “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” Shalam!
