FAITH CAPSULE: Dwell and abide in the word of God.
Psalm 91, John 8:31-47
When you give less to the word of God the world will occupy your life for eternal destruction.
Jesus spoke the truth to those who believe, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
The word of God is His way not to live a life of waste.
Knowing the truth is not the same as knowing about the truth.
Knowing the truth will not be a liar, deceptive to become a manipulator.
Knowing the truth is to fear God to become free.
Any acclaimed believer that dwells in the word of God is positioned not to drift away from God. One that drifts away from the word of God is neglecting great salvation.
Hebrews 2:1 admonished us, “…we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.” To live life as a believer that is true and not live as a liar, must give the more earnest heed to the word of God.
Are you living life as a true believer?
Through the pages of the bible, the word of God repeatedly admonished man to be a true believer stating, “…give the more earnest heed to the things heard in the word of God”.
The word of God demands from believers to, “…give the more…” Asking us to “…give the more…” is asking for seeking God’s word with diligence. Word is not asking us to give casual attention to the word of God. Giving more earnest heed in the word of God is a serious intention and having regard to the word that will make one become a true believer.
To be a true believer is not by quoting bible verses, by attending fellowship or holding a position in the fellowship gathering.
Also, to be exposed to bible teaching and not be imparted by the word is the evidence of not giving earnest heed in the word of God.
Today, are you busy for the world more than giving earnest heed in the word of God. When a believer gives less to the word of God the world will occupy more of the believer.
You can be a liar; you can deceive the world, but God cannot be deceived.
Today, you should know that the word of God is steadfast and unfaltering as a source of the great salvation. Give more earnest heed in the word of God, let truth take over in your life. Proverbs 12:22 said it all, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal truthfully are His delight.”
Prayer for today: Ask for the grace to be a true believer.
