Is Your Word Your Bond? 

MARCH 20 & 21, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Numbers 30:2If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    When I was young, I would hear the statement, “A Man’s Word Is His Bond.” You do not hear that statement so much anymore. Possibly the reason we do not hear it, is because people do not practice it too often. Everything now seems to have to be written on paper, signed by an army, and backed by the government before we believe it to be true. Even people getting married today begin their marriage with a lack of trust in one another or their bond of marriage. Engaged couples create pre-marital contracts in case the marriage fails. What a sad way to begin a life together, which is supposed to be one of trust and a bond of two becoming one. Instead, the marriage begins with a statement of distrust in a written contract of how later to dissolve the relationship.

    Why is it important to God that our word is final, and a promise is to be carried out? Well, it goes back to Genesis where God stated that we are created in His image. You see, God wants us to be as much like Him as possible. One of the most wonderful characteristics is, “God Never Lies.” His Word is final, and His Word is true. Always.     

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    As we begin to make promises today for the future, we should just stop and think for one moment, are we “SURE WE CAN DO WHAT WE SAY WE WILL DO?” This may seem easy, but keeping all of our, “off the cuff promises,” may present all of us with a task that is challenging from time to time. Every time we promise to pray for someone, do we. Or, if we tell God that if He answers a prayer, we will do something for Him. Then He does His part, and we do not. Making promises is easy. Keeping them is sometimes a challenge. However, to do so, to be an honest trustworthy person, makes us more like Christ. Is your word your bond?

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
