Word for Today:
How rich is your heart with the word of Christ?
Ministry of the Word(MOW):True Spirituality (TS)
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Col 3:16).
Many Christians are living in disobedience without knowing. How many Christians can sincerely say their hearts are filled with the words of Christ? You are the only one can answer the question by yourself and for yourself. When Jesus was challenged by Satan, He quoted the word of God from His heart to defeat the devil ( Matthew 4:1-11).
Without you opening the bible, how many scriptures can you release from your mouth when required? I have to say even in the church, it’s often frustrating that believers don’t have the understanding of sharing and speaking the word of Christ with one another, outside the usual Sunday preaching.
Everywhere you go , every situation you find yourself, there is always an opportunity to ‘showcase’ Jesus Christ. I am often amazed that many Christians are not comfortable with sharing Jesus (the Word of God) with others, for what ever reasons. Many Christians are not promoting and honouring Jesus Christ in their thoughts, words and conducts.
After Apostle Paul found Jesus through a dramatic circumstance on his way to Damascus in Acts Chapter 9, he considered everything else he had as lost. Hear him:
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 3:21).
When Jesus Christ revealed the Ministry Of the Word (MOW), Acts 6:4, to me in 2008, I had no clarity with regard to what exactly the Lord wanted me to do nor how to go about it. But the vision is a lot clearer day by day to the glory of God the Father in Christ Jesus. One clear vision I have about MOW is that it’s entirely charity. Money should not be mixed with the Word of God.
For a true Christian, nothing should be more important than sharing the word of Christ, doing the word of Christ and living the word of Christ.
I love my Jesus and Jesus loves me. No circumstances can change my decision.
If your heart is filled up with the word of God, the word of God will flow out when you open your mouth to speak. The Word says:
“…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” ( Matthew 12:34)
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word. Be wise. Be enlightened.
Become a DISCIPLE, AMBASSADOR and a MISSIONARY for Jesus Christ.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Father, please give us the grace to truly fall in love with you, honour you and promote you every we go in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus! Blood of Jesus !
Thank you Jesus for enriching my heart with your word daily.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
