John 8:31 – To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you abide in my word, you are really my disciples. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
Abiding in God’s word is important for me. I am resilient at times and at other times easily knocked. When I am knocked I need to learn to live in his word. Read it, meditate on it, listen to what God is really saying to me and ask him to bring his words alive.
I know my house group tonight will be looking at Ephesians 6 – yet another reminder of the importance of the sword of the Spirit and the belt of truth, both essential parts of my armour.
Live in God’s word, breathe it in, meditate on every meaning, abide in it, remain solid, accept it as the undisputed word, wait on it, remain steadfast in your beliefs, building foundations on solid ground as God builds your foundations of precious stones, alive and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, a lamp for your feet, a light to your path, enduring forever, blessed are those who hear and obey, God’s word will be here even when heaven and earth have passed away, know that you cannot live on bread alone, praise God in whose word you trust, get rid of all moral filth and lust, humbly accepting God’s word given to you, draw from the depth of his word planted within you.
