How Can We Know Gods Truth? (CMC #12)



II Timothy 2:15 commands us to study God’s Word so we will be able to understand it as God intended.  But the following verse (2:16) warns us to avoid vain and profane babblings because they will eat at our soul like a canker sore, which attacks healthy skin and is very difficult to eliminate.  Profane and vain babblings are definitely something to avoid, and I can’t think of anything more vain and profane than the majority of today’s entertainment choices.
Isn’t it interesting that Paul warned Timothy to abstain from profane and vain babblings right after directing him to study the Word of God.  I believe God was warning Timothy -- and us -- that profane and vain babblings will inevitably undermine the Truth of God’s Word.  Frankly, our entertainment choices can make or break us.  A good way to avoid making the wrong entertainment choice is to take the Christian Music Challenge.

Do You Chase After God? (CMC #10)



The Bible tells us that King David was a man after God’s own heart. What does that mean?  David was known for seeking the heart of God in the midst of adversity. He pursued an intimate relationship with God.   David wasn’t perfect, but when he failed miserably (as he did with Bathsheba), he always turned to God because he found forgiveness, love, and acceptance.
You can be a man or woman after God’s heart just like David.  Remember, there was nothing “special” about David.  He was human just like us. If you would like to be known as a man or woman after God’s own heart, then follow David’s example.  Keep your focus on God through godly songs; allow your heart to remain in tune with His heart.  When you blow it, turn to God just as David did.  Christian music can help you maintain a focus on life from a biblical perspective.
