John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
At one point in my life, I bought a minivan and a 100,000-mile warranty. During the time I had the warranty, if anything went wrong with my minivan, I would take it to the manufacturer’s representative to have it repaired. Once the warranty was up, (and as I am sure you are aware, more things began breaking after the 100,000 miles than before), I took it to another mechanic I knew. He referred continually to the manual for the minivan. When I brought it in and told him of a funny noise it was making, he got out a book, looked to see what parts were going to cost and what parts needed to be removed to replace that part. Why did he have those books? They were printed because the manufacture of the minivan knew what mechanics would need to know to repair it.
Today our world is in a mess. People no longer count God as the one true God. Everyone thinks they have a better way of fixing things. This may sound new and unique to our time; however, it is not. Even when Jesus was living here on earth, people were rejecting him. They saw the miracles and still wondered if He was for real. We have the owner’s manual to life in the Word of the Scripture. He tells us how to fix the situations of life. However, people do not want to look in the book. Through the church and the Holy Spirit, God is still in the world He made. He is still among the people who He created. Yet they still are rejecting His advice. It is like tossing out the owner’s manual.
Even God’s people seem to be too lazy to read the book for advice. They want to have the preacher or television tell them what God has said. You must be careful. There are still wolves in sheep’s clothing. If you do not know the Book, how will you know if they are right? READ THE OWNERS MANUAL! GOD’S WORD.
