The best way to prevent ourselves and the world from decaying

Every day we keep seeing the world decaying, laws getting broken, people killing each other, thieving, fornication, adultery, suicide, alcohol and drug abuse, wars everywhere, corrupted politics and so on it goes.

I can surely admit that in today’s world ‘Nakedness has become unclothed, Fornication has become free love, Committing suicide has become choosing to die, Adultery has become having a life partner, Drunkards are being called alcohol-diseased persons, and instead of promoting abstinence and fidelity in a world where Aids is on the increase, HIV-Positive persons are prescribed condoms, and some of those carrying out these acts either were born in Christian families or describe themselves as Christians. It confuses me when Christians are told to be the salt and the light of the world and yet still carry out these actions. So what do you think is the cause of all this, and how can it be fixed, especially to those who call themselves Christians?

For me the answer is very simple, the cause of all this decaying is the lack of God’s word, we are failing because we do not have the word of God in our hearts. Some of us as Christians have failed the commitment of living by the word, we are no longer led by the word, rather we have chosen to be led by the world, we have not been set apart from the world, rather we have chosen to live by the rules of the world. The word of God has become just like all those other books on the shelf. All that I have mentioned above are sins, and these sins are being committed due to absenteeism of God’s word in our hearts.

Remember the word’s of kind David in Psalms 119:11 he said, “I have hidden your word in my heart so that I may not sin against you. David knew that the only way to stay away from sin was by keeping God’s word in his heart. Are we as Christian doing the same? Are we really keeping God’s word in our hearts so that we may not sin against him, or are we just reading it as those other books on that shelf?

The state in which the world is in today shows us what happens when people are not fed with God’s word, and lack of God’s word cause people to stagger without direction and guidance through the confusion of contradicting ideologies, philosophies, and religions. If Christians are to prevail they have to understand and see the importance of God’s word in their personal lives, the lives of their families and friends.

God’s word is the key to overcoming all the hurts in this world, only his word can help us overcome sin and preventing the world from decaying, not our might or power, but his true word. It is the garment of righteousness, a shield of defense, light to those in darkness. The word of God is designed to nourish the inner man, the Bible gives us instructions, exhortations, encouragement, correction, comfort and perspectives, and it is God’s love letter to mankind. The word can really change things; it can make the world a better place once again. If we Christian live by the word, we have the power to transform lives in our hands.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work"

For you and me as Christians we should be determined to make the word of God our road-map through the confusion of the modern corruption and sinful world. The word of God is the bread of life, we eat, we stay nourished and healthy forever, and when we live by it we make the world a healthy place preventing it from decaying. Great teachings essential for our living are found in the word of God, so let us all take some time and come to the table together to share this meal. If you are a father and husband, then let the word teaching you how to be faithful to your wife and children, the same to women, and children. Depths of riches are found in God’s word, by it let’s come together and change the condition of this world. To stay healthy, let’s make it our daily meal.
