One day, I thought about how many hours I was with my laptop everyday or how many hours I was connected to the Internet. Well, I spent most of my life with my several computers and the Internet. Of course, the Internet and my laptop are necessary to study and work. However, I’ve sought even my delight with those things like other people. Actually, I’ve enjoyed surfing the Internet and playing with my computer stuff rather than talking with my family, reading the Bible and praying to God. The Internet and my laptop have gradually eroded my life in unconsciousness.
And then, I thought why God allowed people to create computers and invent the Internet even though most His people prefer to be with those things rather than pray to Him. According to the Bible, God has his plan about all of us, including me and you. That means the whole surrounding of us is under His control. Therefore, there must be a reason why God allowed people to use those things.
- “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)
- “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.”( Ephesians 1:11)
Finally, I’ve found the answer in the Bible. Through the Bible, God says that He created us to do good works in Christ Jesus; moreover, He says that the whole surrounding of us was created for us by Him. That means God created and allowed the whole surrounding of us, including information technology, to help us to do righteous works in Christ Jesus.
- “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’”(Genesis 1:28)
- “ For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)
Now, I clearly know my knowledge that has been learning is simply not for my delight and life. Actually, the entire process to obtain the knowledge has been in His plan, so I should delightfully use the knowledge to do good works in Christ Jesus. This thought is the beginning of my new life as a new generation nazirite. Moreover, that is the beginning of “NewNazirite.Com”.
