Word for Today: The Two Basic Requirements.
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” ( John 15:7)
The Word of God is admonishing us of two basic requirements for overflowing provision. What are these ? (1) True believers abiding in the Word (2) The word of God abiding in true believers.
What does it mean to abide? In simple terms, to abide means to obey, to accept, to comply with, to follow, to conform to, to uphold, to adhere to, to respect, to pay attention to, to act in accordance with, to agree with, to dwell with, to cleave to etc.
To some extent, I sense that it’s easier for believers to abide in Christ, meaning they accept, follow, obey, respect Jesus Christ. However, when it comes to the word of God abiding in believers, only few believers in the body of Christ may pass the test. If I may ask you, are the words of God your thoughts, beliefs, and imaginations? Does the word of God guide your life? Do you dream of the word of God? How passionate are you about the word of God? How fond are you of the word of God? Are you pre-occupied with the word of God? Are the words of God in the heart? Is your life controlled by the word of God? What are the predominant contents of the words of your mouth ? According to our Lord Jesus Christ Himself:
“…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” ( Matthew 12:34). So the
word of your mouth is a reflection of what is in your heart and in your spirit.
Spend valuable time with the word of God. As you abide in the Word of God, let the word of God also abide in you. Then whatever you ask God shall be given to you.
Arise and shine, for your light has come.
Have a blessed new day in Jesus Name.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Thank you Jesus for the grace in your word.
Father, please give us the grace to abide in you and let your word abide in us in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
