I say that we need to do the same with the word of God! Memorize, internalize, verbalize, and actualize the word. We need to know, that we know, that we know the Holy Word of God. Then when and if any counterfeits; false religions, or false religious teachers come along, we will be able to spot the not.
Lord, How great You are! Your word says that this whole earth is Yours and everything in it! The world and all its people belong to You. You created the world and the oceans. Help us, Lord, to have pure hands and hearts.
Jesus came to satisfy the payment once and for all. There are no barriers anymore. No sacrifices that need to be paid. He gave the ultimate sacrifice on the cross for our sins.
We are to show His love more and more to everyone. He has given us this wonderful job of bringing people back to Him. We are His ambassadors and we are to plead with others “Come back to God!”
Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You, Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Thank You for Your word which instructs us in all righteousness. May we all adhere to Your word. Let it be applied to our lives, so that every step we take would be a perfect representation of Your great love.
Oh, to be overfilled with Your Holy Spirit, that we would be able to minister to those around us. One word from You could do more than a thousand of our own. Please Lord continue Your work in us. Until the day we meet You face to face, just like the hymn, what a day, glorious day that will be!
