Protection for the years ahead

Cross thoughts: Christian ideas seen in Sudanese every day life.

Why is your Bible like a mosquito net? Read on for an answer!!

I was blessed by God to be in Khartoum when the Mabaan translation of the Bible book “Genesis” was completed and released for people to read. I gave a short talk on the value of the Bible to the Christian life. It was well worth the price for showing the believer how to live right as a Christian should. It is the best manual for Christian discipleship.

The likeness between the Bible and a mosquito net can be easily seen! Have you got it ?

Reading God’s word, and then living the way it teaches, makes for a good Christian.

It protects today’s Christian from the bad things of modern life.

“How can a young man (or woman) keep his (or her) way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden you word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

Praise be to you, O Lord; you teach me your decrees. With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.

I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.

I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees;

I will not neglect your word”. Psalm 119:9-­16.

Knowing what God says about any subject, will help stop you from making wrong choices. Read again what the Psalmist thought about God’s word (above) .

It is true, whatever the language!
