When Jesus came out, He saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them (Mark 6:34).
Sailboarding (or windsurfing) is a popular sport on Oregon’s Columbia River. A surfboard has a sail attached and the athlete is moved across the surface of the water by the wind. The athlete uses both his skill and strength to maneuver a course or race other athletes.
The word inspired comes from ancient Greece. It means to be moved along by the wind or breath.
I often hear of someone say, “I was inspired.” My question is always, “So what were you inspired to do?” Inspiration isn’t an emotion that ends in a warm and fuzzy feeling, it moves a person along a course of action to a specific destination.
The Bible claims that its human writers were moved along by the Spirit of God to use their own skills and words as they wrote (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21). Holy men of old wrote as God breathed His out His words into them. Inspiration ensures that every single word of the Bible is nothing less than God-breathed and fully accurate, trustworthy, and truthful. When the last word of the Bible was penned, God was finished speaking (Revelation 22:18-19).
If another person has touched you by their actions or words, experience or encouragement, then do something. Be inspired and not just entertained.
