The bottom line of true spiritual life is not a momentary feeling of compliance or commitment but long-term OBEDIENCE to Scripture.
How do we respond to God’s Word? • Receive the Word HUMBLY.
>>We often approach the Word TALKING instead of listening. >>We often begin to twist God’s Word to fit our LIFESTYLES. >>God has written the Word in your HEART.
• REMEMBER the Word Constantly.
>>Look into the Word of God INTENTLY. >>Let the Word of God SATURATE and ABSORB into you.
Pastoral Encouragement . . . . . • Do not merely listen to the Word, OBEY the Word without fail. • CULTIVATE a desire to learn and obey the Word of God. • Memorizing the Word of God radically changes our CHRISTIANITY.
