It’s not if, but when. Jesus says it’s not if but when: storms will come in life. There are no exceptions.
We are followers of Jesus who want to help others follow Him, too. The Scriptures were written with this in mind. “Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:30-31)
The founder of Methodism, John Wesley, gave us a great tip when he said, “I am a man of one book.” Scripture was the governing authority for his life and should be for every true follower of Jesus. A key part of the “method” of Methodism is developing the habit of reading, understanding and applying biblical truth. If we don’t read it, it has no value. If we don’t understand what we read, it is irrelevant. James 1:22 tells us, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
