Be More Than A Listener


Listening to The Word of God will sure build us up, it is like indulging on good food, the good food is good for nourishment for our bodies, The Word of God is wonderful nourishment for us body, soul and spirit. But unless we exercise, just to intake of good food, is not all good, because our bodies will just put on excess weight. which can lead to other problems.

Our bodies have been created with a purpose in mind, by a Loving God, sure he wants us to partake of good food, but His plans for us is an active purpose, a doing purpose. The Good food is for energy, to produce the active and doing purpose.

Just like listening and digesting His word, it is for an active and doing purpose. Even though sometimes God’s Word may be difficult to enact, and may not make sense from our human understanding, what Our Lord and Our Friend requires us to do, will always bring blessing, joy, and peace to our lives.

We are all good consumers, but we also need to be doers of the things, that build our relationship with our Loving God, who created us. so we can be effect in His plans of growing His Kingdom.

1 Samuel 3; Is God calling of Samuel; Lets look at a few verses from the Chapter;

V10: “The Lord came, stood there, and called as before, ‘Samuel, Samuel!’ Samuel responded, ‘Speak, for Your servant is listening’.”

V11; “The Lord said to Samuel, ‘I am about to do something in Israel that everyone who hears about it will shudder'”

Our response there might have been why are you telling me Lord. Samuel not only received the message, but got on with what the Lord wanted Him to do.

Samuel obedience to listening:

V19: “Samuel grew, and The Lord was with him and let nothing He said prove false”.

James 1 verse 25: “But the one who looks intently into the perfect law  of freedom {God’s Word] and perseveres in it, and is not forgetful but a doer who acts– this person will be blessed in what he {she} does”.

More than a listener, let all be Intent in Listening to The Word of God, Perseveres in the things Our Lord and Our Friend ask us to do, and be active in doing the things God has called  us to do.

God Bless.
