Majoring In Minors

by Ron Bartanen

Let’s be honest-most of us at times are guilty of majoring in minors. In so doing, we slight the real and reach for the artificial in life.

Consider some examples.

“She that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth” (1 Timothy 5:6).  Some
churches even make entertainment a priority, thinking to increase numbers byt his means.
     We put too much emphasis on the things of this life, often forgetting
that “It is appointed unto men once to die, and after death the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

THE MOST IMPORTANT question one can ask is “What must I do to be saved?” And when you ask that question, you need to receive the right answer-the Bible answer.  The Bible teaches that one is saved by faith (belief and trust) in Jesus Christ, God’s Son-a faith that will induce
repentance, confession of faith and baptism in Jesus’ name (Acts 2:38; 22:16).  Our priority then is faithful service.  The Lord’s promise in Revelation 2:10 is, “Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”

If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
