Three Things that Make our Life Count

God's Wisdom For Today

Jul 17 2020 • 10 mins

"If you want your life to count now and forever for Christ, here is all you need to do. Fear the Lord. Turn away from evil. Do that alone and your life will be magnificent." - Raymond C. Ortlund Jr.

Today’s Scripture: Proverbs 3:7

Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. (ESV)


Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.

Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.  (MSG)


Other verses mentioned in the episode:

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud; instead, associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own estimation. (Romans 12:16)


Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes

And clever in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:21)


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

Fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7) [[ theme verse]]


Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;

They will seek me diligently but they will not find me,

Because they hated knowledge

And did not choose the fear of the Lord. (Proverbs 1:28-29)


Then you will discern the fear of the Lord

And discover the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:5)


Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. says, “Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Yes, it’s a simple thing to say. But we need to be told, because it is radical. The first of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses was this: Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ in saying, “Repent, “ intended that the whole life of believers should be repentance. You probably have a to do list for this coming week. Here are the priorities God wants at the top of your list in terms of urgency. #1: Fear the Lord. #2: Turn away from evil. #3: As time permits, breathe. That is the urgency of your life this week. It will add greatness to your life. It will add life to your life. It will save you from a wasted life.”
