A pile of books will easily fall over if stacked too high. The slightest bump against a shelf of books without support causes the books to fall over like dominoes.
What bookends keep God’s Word intact in your life?
Reading the Word of God for the purpose of gaining knowledge stacked in your mind is like a house built on sand. The slightest rain or storm will cause the house to collapse. When reading the Word of God with the revelation of who Jesus Christ is, your house is built on the Rock. It will stand in the midst of any storm or calamity. The truth is embedded into your heart, it becomes more than knowledge, it is a knowing.
Smiling, your arm brushes against your bookshelf as you walk past. Surprised, you watch the books fall over to the one side. Why did that happen? You believe the Word of God, you have the revelation, and you have faith… what is missing?
Books need to be supported on both ends to stay upright. Faith without works is useless (James 2:20). Application of the Word of God combined with the revelation of Jesus Christ is how the Word will become flesh in your daily life.
