Test Everything

But test everything. Keep what is good and stay away from everything that is evil.  1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 (NCV)

It is good for believers of Jesus to test popular opinion against the Word of God.  We need to use our brains and challenge what our culture tells us is good.

The Bible says keep the good and stay away from evil.  This goes for everything we surround ourselves with:  Music, Social Media, Movies, News, Radio, etc.

Christians should be famous for investigating things against the Bible.

We must decide for ourselves, will we base our life on the Word or the World?

…We capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NCV)

These are battle words.  Christians need to fight through confusion and wrong thinking.

The Bible is our only standard to evaluate everything else against.

Ask yourself:  Is this right?  Is it true?  Does it honor God?

Pray:  Dear God – Help me to know Your Word so that I can know the standard to evaluate things in my life.  Help me to understand what Your best is for me and not to be lost or confused in the world and pop culture.  I want to honor You with my life.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
