April - Absorb His Word

Posted by Ebenezer Congregational Church on April 18, 2012 at 11:15 AM

"For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth ad bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eather. So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55: 10, 11

As I write this we still have seen no significant moisture. We know that God sends rain upon the just and the unjust alike, that He is the One who sends rain and snow. Living in an arid part of the country as this, we should recognize our absolute need and gratitude for His moisture. The Lord, however, is using rain to teach us about His word....how we need His word and also what we do with His word. As rain falls on hard packed soil or pavement, there is little value because it is not absorbed. This is true of our hearts and minds as well. You can die of thirst in a lake full of water if you never take it in and allow it to hydrate your body tissue. I remember someone on the radio saying, "It's not enough to read the Word of God, it's not enough to know the Word of God, we must live the Word of God!" Letting God's voice penetrate your life and bring about growth and maturity to bring glory to God accomplishes that which pleases Him. That which you thirst for you have in your Bible....read it, learn it, live it!

In His Word,

/s/ Pastor David
