Yesterday, I went off script because I was upset. I had just finished a conversation on a Facebook community page where they were showing pictures of pornographic decals to put in the back window of their cars, claiming they could do anything they wanted with their own property.  At the end, I said, “Well, why don’t you all take a look at my blog where I get to say whatever I want and at the end, you can say whatever you want. Yesterday’s message was to them.  So today, I shall do the message I had previously planned for yesterday.



The scripture for today, January 10 (1/10), is Colossians 1:10 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: Bearing fruit in every good work; Growing in the knowledge of God.”

Are you always doing some good work for other people? Does it fill your thoughts and life?  Or are you always delving into the Bible to gain more knowledge of God? Does it fill your thoughts and life? Good for you.

But we see here, we must have a balance. James 2:17 says faith without works is dead. On the other hand, Romans 10:2 says certain people were zealous for God, but their zeal was not based on knowledge.

We have to add to our Bible-based faith, good works. We have to add to our zealous good works, the knowledge of God from the Bible.

It’s hard to get out of a rut, no matter how good it is.  Maybe it’s time to examine yourself.  Maybe it’s time to add the other requirement to your life.  Don’t you want to be spiritually balanced?
