Monthly bible message March 2020 “ The most important thing” Youth pastor KenshiroGoto

             


Every time scandals of famous people are reported, its very disappointingIn spite of high income, good talent, good looks, and popularity, why do they get involved in evil deeds?


I dont have any special popularity or talent, but I can sympathize with them. Because I used to think like this. If I dont bother others, I can do anything. If nobody sees me, I dont mind doing anything. Thats why I was involved in various wicked things. I told lies, stole things and was filled with dirty thoughts. I stupidly thought, I just want to gain profit. Im always right.


But I met God through the Bible. I also knew that I was a sinner and Jesus Christ was died on the cross for me. And I believed Him as my Savior. Since then, Ive been totally changed! Previously, I enjoyed sin and felt little pain in my heart, but now I am so sorry that I cannot enjoy it. Even though no one is watching, God is watching me. So if I want to do something wrong, it will stop me. I became sensitive to sin. I do not want to grieve Jesus, my lifesaver. Of course, I am still imperfect, so I sin. However, unlike before, I have come to love God. Even if I am not praised or appreciated by anyone, I want to continue to do good work. Because I believe that it pleases Him and he rewards me someday.


In Japan, it is believed that education can create good people, but is that true?If so, those with a good education should be good people. But that is not the case. At school, we start with studying alphabet, but there is something more important. The Bible says about 3,000 years ago.The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.(Proverbs 1:7a)


The Lord is the Creator who made us. Acknowledge and fear this God. This is the start. One can separate from sin and choose good things through fear of God. He protects us from evil and give us the power to do good.
