Q is for questions, and I want to tell you about a time I asked God some questions during one week, and didn’t tell anyone about them. The questions were these: 1. Is fear a sin? And 2. What does yoke mean? I knew the Bible talked about Christians not being yoked with people who didn’t believe, but what did that mean exactly? Did it mean I shouldn’t have close relationships with non-Christians – shouldn’t spend much time with them?
When I got to church on Sunday night, it wasn’t our pastor preaching, but a man who was at the time a prison chaplain. He gave his sermon a title: “The Sin of Fear and Worry”, and guess what he slotted somewhere into the middle of it? “Yoke means to become someone’s disciple.” To become someone’s disciple – to follow their ideas in other words. God really does hear our questions and answer them!
Is there a question you’d like to ask God? Why not ask it this week and see what He does?
