NOT JUST READING THE WORD BUT LIVING THE WORD Getting closer to Jesus is not only about reading the word but living the Word. James 1:22-25 says, But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.' John 13:17 says 'if you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. We want Jesus to call us blessed because we walk our talk. It is not a matter of how much of the Word we know but how much we live the Word. As we read God's Word, may we pray Ephesians 1:17-18 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding[a] being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.' When God's Word ceases to be a story book but an agent of divine transformation in our lives then we can get closer to Him. NOT JUST SAYING WE LOVE JESUS BUT OBEYING HIS COMMANDS Jesus clearly says, 'If you love Me, keep My commandments. In John 15:10,' Jesus further says 'If you obey My commandments, you will remain in My love.' We can't continue in sin and say we love Jesus. When we love someone, we do our utmost to please them. May this be a time of shaking off stubborn sins, by His grace. Romans 6:1 asks ' shall we go on sinning so that grace my increase? By no means, no!
