Guidance. I need it quite often in my life. Whether it was how to properly tie my shoe when I was 6 or how to hold a newborn baby – which I am enjoying once again. There are many things we need guidance on in life, but none more important than in our thinking of God.
This “thinking about God” has traditionally been referred to as theology or the study of God. Theology has gotten a bad wrap over the years – even in Christian circles. It has been viewed as stuffy, impractical, and irrelevant. Not only do I think there is nothing further from reality, I believe there is nothing more relevant than a right understanding of God. But there lies the problem…a “right” understanding of God.
“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”A.W. Tozer
There is such a thing as bad theology. And there is a lot of it going around. Why is theology, (right theology particularly) so important and imperative for our lives? Graham Cole shares 3 reasons “Why Doing Right Theology Matters“. See if you can find all three in his article and comment them below.
As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s Day (even though that is looking different for so many of us during this time). Enjoy the article and break from routine.
