I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food
Pastor John Hagee once told his son, Pastor Matt: “If you’ll take the time to dig into God’s Word and tell others what He says, they’ll come from all over the world to hear you. But if all you do is tell them what you say, they won’t cross the street to listen.”
While most of us will not become internationally-known ministers, the wisdom in these words applies to us, too. This world is perishing for a lack of knowledge. They have rejected God’s laws and are reaping the painful consequences of living outside of His will.
People need to hear the Word of God – not the latest self-help advice, psychological diagnoses, or our well wishes. So many are floundering – and even falling – because they have failed to get the Word into themselves.
Job said that he treasured God’s words more than his necessary food; they sustained, nourished, and gave life to his faith walk. There, he found strength to persevere.
Take time to read it, memorize it, meditate on it. Dig in! We may not have silver or gold, but we can share the riches of God with others. Out of the storehouse in our hearts, we can give the life and love found in Jesus alone.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you hide the Word of God in your heart and share it with everyone that you meet. His Word is life and light to a darkened world!
