What are the greatest turning points in your life? What has the had the greatest impact on the way you think and live?
For a long while I knew that on the list should be God and the Bible, but in my heart of hearts I knew that was not true.
The Bible seemed hard as steel, and though I knew I should love God, I didn’t know how he could affect my life while being so distant, invisible, and silent.
I read the Bible through the lens of my own purposes, and found it lacking in useful advice.
Then I was shown how to study God’s perfect words rightly divided. For the first time the Bible starting making sense.
God’s will was suddenly clearly visible, as if a light had been turned on. God was telling the truth. I only needed to listen to what he said to whom he said it.
That has been one of the greatest turning points in my life. It was a long turn. It has changed my perspective on everything.
It has changed who I am. The change was not overnight, and I am not alone. A gentleman wrote me and said:
“I have discovered right division in the last six months…and there is no turning back…I can honestly say I have learned more and rightly in this few months than 40 years since my salvation.”
It is happening to him, too. Glory!
What’s your story?
