No Big Secret


Sometimes it appears that other Christians have a special "secret" to be able to do what they do or to know what they know.  But the truth is, there's no secret.  The story is told about someone coming to Gus Nichols, a great preacher, and saying, "Brother Nichols, I'd give my life to know the Bible as well as you do."  It is reported that Nichols' reply was, "That's exactly what it took."

    There's no secret to knowing the Bible -- just a determination to spend time studying the Word of God. 

    There's no secret to always having time to devote to the Lord's work -- you just have to make the time. 

    There's no secret to developing spiritual maturity -- it's a lifetime commitment to growing up in Christ.

There's no secret: "Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love." (2 Peter 1:5-7)
