In the Peanuts comic strip, Linus and Lucy are standing at the window looking out at the rain falling. Lucy says to Linus, “Boy, look at it rain…What if it floods the earth?” Linus, the resident biblical scholar for the Peanuts, answers, “It will never do that…in the ninth chapter of Genesis, God promised Noah that would never happen again, and the sign of the promise is the rainbow.” With a smile on her face, Lucy replies, “Linus, you’ve taken a great load off my mind.” To which Linus responds, “Sound theology has a way of doing that.”

It is imperative that we be “sound in doctrine.” Notice what the Bible says about sound doctrine.

“If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is puffed up, knowing nothing, but doting about questionings and disputes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, wranglings of men corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, supposing that godliness is a way of gain” (1 Tim. 6:3-5). “For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables” (2 Tim. 4:3-4). “Holding to the faithful word which is according to the teaching, that he may be able both to exhort in the sound doctrine, and to convict the gainsayers” (Tit. 1:9). “But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine” (Tit. 2:1).

It is very true that being sound in doctrine brings peace of mind. But being sound in doctrine is not enough, for Jesus said, “If you love me you will keep my commandments” (Jn. 14:15). “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Mt. 7:21).

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you also, that ye also may have fellowship with us: yea, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ” (1 Jn. 1:3).

A need for rich personal relationship is deeply embedded in our created nature. We owe our existence not to impersonal forces, but to a personal Creator, and it was the Creator Himself who said, “It is not good that man should be alone” (Gen. 2:18). We are personal beings, persons designed for full, vibrant relationship.

But sin destroys relationship. “Behold, Jehovah’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, so that he will not hear” (Isa. 59:1-2). It severs us from God and from others, cutting us off from this thing that is necessary to our nature. So there is perhaps no symptom of sin any more obvious than the deep, gnawing pain of isolation. And in sin, there is no groaning more desperate than to be freed from our loneliness.

But however much we need relationship in general, our most vital need, the only one we can’t survive without, is our need for relationship with God. In every man there is a loneliness, an inner chamber of peculiar life into which God only can enter. Our craving for God is a dependency we were meant to have. It is a profound need for perfect relationship, and to try to fill this need with our flawed connection to other human beings is not only wrong, it is hopeless.

If we fail to let God fill our need for relationship – if it is not in Him that our loneliness is taken away – then we will force an impossible mandate on the imperfect people around us. We will demand from others a satisfaction they aren’t capable of providing in this broken world. Only the infinite God is able to relate to us perfectly. And even with God, what we can have in this life is only a foretaste of the perfect union that heaven will provide.

When we find that even our most intimate earthly companions can’t provide the depth of relationship for which we were created, bitterness, resentment and depression may be the tempting reaction. Yet there is a healthier response. We can see the imperfections in our own relationships as a salutary reminder. God alone is the One to whom we must look for life, unfailing love, and meaningful relationship. To forget that is to lose the path that leads to heaven.

“If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 Jn. 1:6-7).

A Missionary translator was endeavoring to find a word for obedience in the native language in which he worked. It was a virtue seldom practiced among the people for whom it he wanted to translate the New Testament. One day as he returned home, he whistled for his dog and it came running to him. An old native said, admiringly, “Your dog is all ears.” Immediately, he knew he had his word for obedience.

Naaman was not “all ears” to the words of the prophet Elisha. He made five mistakes that any one can make.

1. He went to the wrong person. He thought the king had the power to cure his leprosy, but he did not.

2. He wanted to be saved his he own way. “I thought” were his words.

3. He was prejudiced. He felt the rivers of Damascus were better than the muddy Jordan.

4.  He stumbled at the simplicity of the command. But finally, Naaman obeyed!

Are you “all ears” when it comes to the word of God?

God creates us with a variety of needs, desires, interests, talents, and opportunities. But these things don’t define what we’ll be. They’re like the bricks, lumber, wallboard, shingles, and tiles we might see piled on the road near a construction site. It’s what we make from the raw elements of our personalities that defines who we are; and this is where priorities and choices are crucial.

Our priorities are seen in these words of Jesus: “But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mt. 6:33). “Work not for the food which perisheth, but for the food which abideth unto eternal life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him the Father, even God, hath sealed” (Jn. 6:27).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
