Have you ever been playing a game against someone and lost, only to find out later that your opponent cheated? It’s a bad feeling to know you were cheated out of the winner’s prize. Just like those who will cheat in playing games, there are those who will cheat you in life. They will tempt you with good things only to cheat you out of what is best. False teachers will tell you things you want to hear just so they get you to turn to them. We all have problems and troubles and there are those who will tell us how to solve those problems, but many have nothing to do with God. Colossians 2:8 says; “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” We need to be careful about listening to people who will cheat us out of what God really wants for us. God wants us to trust in Him and lean on Him as someone who needs help walking. Proverbs 3:5 tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” So when problems do arise we need to turn to God and not be cheated by what man may say. Even when we don’t understand, we need to remember James 4:15; “Instead you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
I would like to personally invite you to Crossroads Baptist Church. You will find our church to be a place where life-long friendships can be cultivated. Crossroads is an environment where you can love God, connect with people, and be empowered for ministry and service.
