Deciding to Commit...

October 24, 2011

1 John 2:11-14

V 14… the word of God abides in you…

As I learned, or perhaps better stated, as I was reminded yesterday, while teaching small group; the Word of God will only abide in you if you put it there. There is no such thing as learning God’s word through osmosis. Instead, we must make the choice to put it there. Every day we must wake up put our feet on the floor and decide to commit ourselves to learning more from His word. Spiritual maturity comes in the good times to prepare you for the bad times; don’t wait until your world is crashing around you to learn from God’s Word, it will be too late. Learn now so that when your are hurting you can wrap it around you like a comforting blanket.
