IT IS MORE THAN…

It is more than reading the Word. It is more than studying the Word. It is more than meditating on the Word. It is more than sharing the Word. What it all comes down to is that we must live the Word. We need to be a walking, living, breathing example of God’s Word. It is more than reciting the Word to the impression of the hearers. It is more than exhibiting our knowledge of Biblical addresses. It is more than carrying our expensive Bibles in our neatly designed cases. What it comes down to is that we must daily illustrate the Word through our lives. It is not interpreting Scripture to fit our theological doctrines. The Word is not a tool of correction to be released on others who are not in harmony with our understanding. It is God who uses His own Word for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (II Tim 3:16) Believers must not transfer authority by taking on the role of God. We are called to introduce the seeking to the source of all forgiveness and peace. The Believer’s calling is to be an instrument of outreach which the Holy Spirit can use as the living example of Jesus Christ. What it comes down to is that people will see more of Jesus than they do of us. Jesus said to Philip, “…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father…” (John 14:9) May every Believer say with confidence and assurance, “He that sees me, sees Jesus.”
To be able to position ourselves to the point of exhibiting the Word, we must first understand the Word. Understanding is simply being “under” the tutorship of the Holy Spirit who guides us into all Truth (John 16:13); and then “standing” on the things that He has taught us. Every Believer needs to practice the example of the Apostle Paul who proclaimed continually that he was a living example of Jesus. (I Cor. 4:6, 11:1; Phil. 3:17, 4:9) The more we “understand” God’s Word, the more we decrease while Jesus increases in our lives. (John 3:30) A young man wanted to meet a very attractive young lady, but he did not know how to approach her. His friend told him she was so into Jesus that the only way to get to know her was through Jesus. May our lives display Jesus to such a degree that no one will ever doubt His daily presence.
Organized religion is not the answer to a hurting world. Church buildings with the cross embedded on their structures will not be able to quench the thirsting of a sinful world. It will take Jesus manifested through His creations. What really matters, in this life, is that we are the living proof of the living Savior. Each day, let us lift up our voices and say as David did, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Ps. 19:14)
