Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/19/17

This week’s scripture is from Luke:

SONY DSC“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”   (Luke 11:28 ESV)

If we have heard the word of God, if it has been spoken into our life, we are blessed. If we have heard the word of God and understood it, if we have responded to the word of God and have given ourselves to Him, then we are greatly blessed. If we have come to know Him who is the living Word, who was the Word in the beginning, who was the Word with God and the Word who is God, then we are blessed beyond measure.

Therefore, let us not neglect to spend time with the Word and in the Word, for in His Word are the words of life: words to live by, words of wisdom, words of His love, words that lead to eternal life. Let us each day take up His word and place it in our heart; let us take up His word and speak it into the world. Let us keep His word by giving it away; let us be obedient to speak the Good News of Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless you to be true to His word.
