1 Thessalonians 5:21 ESV "but test everything; hold fast what is good."As I plugged in the transformer, I began to test the parts of the operating train car I have and found some of the parts were no longer useful, and had to be replaced! Today's Word shares about testing everything and keeping what is good! There's nothing like getting things all set up and then you go to operate one of the cars on your model railroad only to have it not work, so I began to test each part, finding where the problem was. Many times in life, we will find ourselves not working to the best of our ability in Christ. We must begin to test everything and ask ourselves a few questions like: are we reading His Word daily, are we walking by the Spirit not the flesh, are we spending time in prayer, are we meeting with other godly men to hold us accountable?! Tough questions but when we are testing everything, we can find and keep what is good and get rid of the rest! What part of our life needs to be replaced so we can stay on the track God has set before us?! peace, tom
