Romans 15.4 – Humility and God’s Word
Posted: 3 September 2010 in Romans

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Therein lies the humility required of anybody who would come to God. The scriptures are there for our learning. The notion of authority comes ill to some today. They think they should be able to make up their own religion as they go along, and God should be more than happy with the result.

Even people with a professional duty to “contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” can sometimes be heard to say, “I don’t believe that because….”, and then follows a statement to the effect they do not believe something because they wouldn’t like that something to be true. Typically, a statement such as that will involve predestination.

But it really does not matter whether we like what we read in the Bible or not. If something is revealed to be true, then we must learn to like it, because we must learn to love God’s will and to desire only what he desires.
