10/25/13 Daily Devotion

2 Peter 2:21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.

Peter was very candid when he stated that those who had begun to falsely bring forth their own religious ideology would have been better off if they had never known the way of righteousness. As they stand before God, they will receive a more complex judgment because of their position, for God holds the teachers of His Word to a higher standard. Those that expound upon the Word of God should not do it for personal gain or personal glory. Those who teach should do so embracing the righteousness of God. Those who teach should personally should hunger and thirst for righteousness, and this will be felt by those they are teaching. Why do you serve God? Why do you teach others the Word of God?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my heart be void of any personal motive as I strive to bring Your Word into this world.
