God didn’t need 6 days to create the universe. He didn’t even need 6 seconds. Nevertheless, he chose to use that specific, limited number of days. No more and no less.
“It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.” (Psalm 18:32,33)
The world simply does not grasp the reality of Jesus Christ.
Within the wide, religious realms of Christian profession, there is very little personal relationship with Christ. He is merely a concept, a tradition or a dogma — an impersonal figure around whom religious observances revolve.
Now, I realize that any one of us can get off base. Seriously, any of us can wander off the path and into the swamp. It is foolish to drive a stake in the ground before we’ve done a proper surveyor’s job. We need to be sure of what we believe before we open our mouths.
That takes study, prayer and growing in the Lord.
So, I am aware that avoiding pride and self delusion demands constant vigilance.
But there is this growing trend among Christians which is cautioning us to not be too sure of our convictions. As if, having and expressing deep beliefs is a sign of arrogance and pride.
Because that is, supposedly, not a “humble” thing to do.
