A Healthy Walk with God part 3
A Healthy walk with God Loves the WORD
Contrary to popular belief, the ultimate end of the Christian faith is not just salvation.
Psalm 1:2 – But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night
1 Peter 2:2 – as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow
It can’t be any plainer. We grow and are healthy by studying the Word of God. Then we can go back into the world and make a difference but not just out in the world – in our homes. It was a huge trend years ago to sport our WWJD bracelets but many professing believers couldn’t tell you what Jesus did.
We are to be more than believers – we are to be followers; we are to be disciples that requires studying the Word. Study to show thyself approved.
Sadly, there are few that study the Word, fewer that even read it and even less that allow the Word to guide them.
Look – Here is the deal. We spend all of our time reading romance novels, magazines, newspapers to keep up with the news, Facebook and Twitter of keep up with trends, we spend countless hours Tweeting using our iPhones and iPads.Yet we can barely find time to seriously check out God’s Word. If we spent half the time that we spend on our phones texting, Facebooking or gaming and got in the Word, how much different would our lives be? How different would our marriages be? How different would our families be?
We just read that we are to DELIGHT in God’s Word, to love it even when it steps on our toes or when it goes against the culture and our lifestyles. We DELIGHT in it because it keeps us on track and protects us. We DELIGHT in it because it it gives us instruction, wisdom, courage and power. Try getting all of that from COSMO.
Lord i pray that i would always have a hungry heart for you and feed daily on Your Word – Amen.
