One of the greatest lessons that I am learning as a BELIEVER is that the WORD OF GOD is food for your heart, soul, and mind. Just like our body needs nutrients to grow and function, well our heart does as well for the believer. Without the WORD OF GOD, the heart will not be transformed by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the SPIRIT OF TRUTH and if we can not accept Him then we forfeit the KINGDOM OF GOD. It is not enough to just confess JESUS as Lord & Saviour. We MUST study the WORD OF GOD which is JESUS CHRIST. In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God (John 1:1).
There are many of us in the body of Christ who are malnourished meaning starving ourselves and are not leaving the life that Jesus died for us to have. Jesus came to the earth and died so that we can live a life of abundance in Him and without the Word the enemy will kill, steal, and destroy (Paraphrase John 10:10). How can we know the path to take if we do not study to show ourselves approved (2 Timothy 2:5). The bible says in Psalm 119:105, the word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my pathway. So many of us are stumbling in the darkness because the WORD OF GOD is not evident in our lives and we can not see without JESUS CHRIST leading the way.
I am not pointing the finger at anyone because I have to look at the plank in my own eye first before I look at anyone else (paraphrase Matthew 7:5). We have to make JESUS CHRIST our foundation or else we will have an unstable and rocky foundation that will sway to the left and right. And it will eventually fall. Jesus Christ MUST become our core! He must be the center of our lives so that we live through Him daily. Whatever we are facing, JESUS CHRIST is the answer. If we would take the time to mediate on His word daily and hide His WORD in our hearts then we could face whatever life throws with Jesus!
I believe that life with JESUS CHRIST is the best life. Many of us are Christians that really do not believe if we are not taking the time (quality time) to read our bible (love letter) from GOD. For GOD so LOVED the world that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that whosoever believes in HIM will not perish but have EVERLASTING life (John 3:16). To belive in JESUS our lives must began to look like the fruit of the WORD which produces (multiply) and bring life in the Spirit. If we can take the time to scroll social media for hours and or spend hours at Starbucks drinking a latte then we can make time (priority time) for the WORD OF GOD. I pray we all take heed!
