Get in the Word

As Christians, we have the Spirit of God in us. But ours is the responsibility to keep sin out of our lives so that the Spirit can produce His fruit in us. Become grounded in the Bible. As Christians, we have only one authority, one compass: the Word of God. Abraham Lincoln in a letter to a friend said, “I am profitably engaged in reading the Bible. Take all of this Book upon reason that you can, and the balance upon faith. You will live and die a better man.” Begin the day with the Book; and as the day comes to a close, let the Word speak its wisdom to your soul. Let it be the firm foundation upon which your hope is built. Let it be the Staff of Life upon which your spirit is nourished. Let it be the Sword of the Spirit which cuts away the evil of your life and fashions you in His image and likeness.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, Your Word nourishes my whole being and I praise Your holy name!

    I want to live like this… having the word of God going deep in my thoughts and dreams, directing my whole being.

    I was so touched by this enlightening piece. The grace to keep away from sins so as to enliven the spirit of God in us to bear the required fruits. Prayer: God help me to live right with you and flee from sins, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen
