CYBER PASTOR VISIT
For the word of God is alive and powerful!
It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
Musician, Rich Mullins, was once asked what he did to sustain his own faith. He answered by quoting the words of a familiar old children’s song, “Read your Bible, pray every day, and you’ll grow, grow, grow.” Jesus affirmed the simple message conveyed by this song:
READ YOUR BIBLE: Jesus said, “People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Jesus didn’t just talk about the importance of Bible study, He practiced it. He quoted the Old Testament scriptures at least sixty times (His quotes are sited in approximately 84 New Testament references).
I remember my grandmother, who actually came and lived with me for a short time. She had committed so many Bible passages to memory. Anything that happened, there she’d go again - she would “go to quoting scripture.” What a blessing to have the Living Word of God at your disposal 24/7! She was an inspiration!!
PRAY EVERY DAY: The Apostle Mark recorded, “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.” Mark 1:35 He not only taught about the importance of prayer, Jesus lived a life of prayer. He prayed alone, in public, before meals, before important decisions, before healing, after healing. He prayed that He’d both know and be empowered to do His Father's will.
My grandmother was a woman of prayer. I remember hearing how she prayed for me during my rebellious years when I was a teenage runaway. Her prayers did not go unanswered. Don’t give up! Pray without ceasing…God hears the prayers of His children!
GROW, GROW, GROW: The Apostle Peter writes, “Like newborn babies, thirst for the pure milk of the word so that by it you may grow in your salvation.” 1 Peter 2:2 And the Apostle Paul writes, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
If your spiritual life is anemic, get down on your knees! If you are stuck in a rut, and your spiritual growth is stunted and stagnant, grab the Living Word of God and grow, grow grow!
