“But knowledge puffs up, while love builds up.”
1 Corinthians 8:1

Knowledge in itself means nothing until it is used for whatever purpose you want to use it for. If it is used for power, then power is all it is good for. If it is used to tear someone down, then it becomes death not life. If knowledge is used to manipulate and deceive, again it becomes death not life. But, if you use knowledge to build others up, it becomes more than just words to explain, it becomes life itself. Those who are proud of the knowledge they have acquired are people who think that they can lord it over people. These people may climb to the top of the ladder only to find that they have climbed alone. Once they are at the top of the ladder, knowledge-wise, and their knowledge is not wanted anymore, then the fall begins with their pride tipping over first and then the rest of their lives begin to slip under as well, as they lose friends, partners, and marriages. Pride of knowledge brings death.

As we continued our education, we were taught things that we have never heard before or had never learned before. Hopefully, we as students of the Word will use what we have learned to build up everyone that Jesus puts in our paths. Truth is what we must teach others. Not the truth based on our interpretations, but on the truth that God Himself has imparted to us since we began this journey. For a believer to build someone up is to be doing the same thing as Jesus did when He was here. Jesus never put anyone down, unless you count the time He called the Pharisees hypocrites; but even then Jesus was telling the truth about them. If more churches used the truth there would be more believers around the world and more believers would want to follow the truth. Knowledge only means something if it comes from the One who is knowledge and gave it to His creation to use to bring Heaven down to Earth. The purpose of knowledge is truth, and all knowledge must be based on this truth. Not the truth of man, but the entire truth of God the Father. Pride has no foothold on a man or woman who follows and uses the knowledge of Almighty God. The heart of Christ beats in the chest of every Christian who refuses to follow the truth of the world. The knowledge of the world also brings death, where the knowledge of God will always bring life.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
