Steve Jobs (Apple company co-founder) said: “Some people say, "Give the customers what they want." But that's not my approach. Our job is to figure out what they're going to want before they do. I think Henry Ford once said, "If I'd asked customers what they wanted, they would have told me, 'A faster horse!'" People don't know what they want until you show it to them.”
No one is better at knowing what we want than God. Even more importantly, God knows best what we need. “…your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” (Mat 6:8)
What we ‘want’ is also not always the best thing for us or those around us. That is why it is crucial to know and believe that God knows best. “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
So, it will pay to take note when God encourages us to eat of, and listen to God’s lifegiving Word. And remember Jesus Christ is the Word who became flesh (John 1:14). God also through the work of the Holy Spirit, ensured the Word to be inscripturated (written down).
Whether we know it or not, we need the lifegiving Word who became flesh and the lifegiving Word given to us in the Bible. In Isaiah 55:11-12a we read: “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. You will live in joy and peace.”
For many people belonging to a Church is a vital and positive part of their lives. Church membership offers a supportive community, people with whom they hold shared values and links to a tradition and faith.
