Is it True?

Is it true that we as believers fail to live the Word of God? Some accuse believers of ignoring entire passages of the New Testament while acknowledging the truth in them.

We need to remember that God always has his elect who do indeed live the Word of God (Romans 11:5). Yahweh has not become ineffective. Jesus is still in the business of changing us. Holy Spirit is still teaching us (2 Peter 1:4).

If we are not careful, the fact that we see many turn away from Jesus or act in a way unbecoming of a priest of God can cause us to become jaded. Let’s not echo Elijah’s sentiment that none are left who follow Jehovah God to the fullest extent. We must be careful lest we unwittingly do not acknowledge the power of God to change lives permanently and to keep for himself a pure remnant.
