I think that almost everyone, believer and non-believer would like the opportunity to ask God one question. What would be the one question that you would ask God if you knew He would give you a direct answer? For several years I have done a weekly article called “Questions For Pastor Randy”. I try to give honest, thoughtful answers based on the Bible to the questions submitted.
The questions that come to me usually revolve around about 25 to 30 different areas that seem to be on the minds of so many people. Questions such as: Why do bad things happen to good people? Is there really a literal hell and heaven? Don’t different religions just offer different paths to God? How can I know for sure that I am going to heaven? All of these are good questions that I believe God has given us the answers to in His Word the Bible. But what if you or I could ask God any question, what would it be?
When I was asked, “What question would you ask God” I decided that this would be my question. It has to do with my personal walk with the Lord. I would simply ask God, “Is there anything I am doing wrong?” Let me explain, I want to live my life in a way that is totally pleasing to God. I am talking about every area of my life. Are their things I am doing, or saying or teaching that I should not be doing, saying or teaching? Am I using whatever gifts or talents He has given me to the best of my ability? Am I leading my family in the way He wants? Am I being the person He wants me to be?
If I am doing wrong in any of these or in any other areas I want to know. I want to stop. I want to do and live out His will in my life. There are many, many questions I would also love to ask but in all reality, this is probably the most important one I could ask that would really make a difference. One day we will have al our questions answered but until then, maybe this is a good question to ask.
