“Take me deeper in understanding and practice,” I prayed as I dove into some Bible verses I have read over and again through the years.
I wanted to go deeper. So I prayed for God to take me there, but this is not all. I prayed for Him to help me put into practice what He would show and teach me. Friend, faith comes in HEARING GOD – and specifically HEARING GOD’S WORD. But we are not to only HEAR God’s Word. We are to DO God’s Word!
We who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord are to LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS and in OUR LOVE FOR JESUS to OBEY JESUS!
So let us believe in the Lord! So let us love the Lord! So let us seek the Lord! So let us read and hear the Bible preached and taught! So let us obey the Lord day after day and forever and ever, AMEN!
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” James 1:22-25
“But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”” Luke 11:28
