What Christians Forget About The New Testament

Aside from The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, much of the New Testament involves letters. These are letters penned by men under the inspiration of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17) to churches and believers. Inside these letters are verses such as, and I’m paraphrasing, watch your language, don’t complain, forgo gossip, and remember that you too are a sinner (Colossians 3:8, Philippians 2:14-16, Ephesians 4:29, Romans 3:23).

While believers should absolutely teach and preach the Word of God (Matthew 28:19), let’s remember that the Bible is just as much for us as it is the world. Don’t be like the rest of the world. Study Jesus. Pay close attention to what He says, and how He prays. Do your best to live like Him. When you fail, and you will fail, try again.

I’m not perfect. I’ve never claimed to be. The older I get, the less of a morning person I am, and Lord knows we all have ‘those kinds of days.’ But that’s why we need to make it a point to pray, read our Bible, and support one another.
