Summary: If you are one of those true believers, neglecting to spend time on the Word of God, then I would like to turn on your interest and love for the Word of God through the following message by bringing to your remembrance how the Word of God works in you
Our God is a speaking God. Right from the beginning of the creation of man, God had been speaking to human beings. God’s words have been recorded in the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God. God has given us His Word so that we may live by it. The Word of God is very precious. Its value is incomparable. Blessed is the man whose heart is illuminated by the Holy Spirit to understand the Word of God, for in that person does the Word of God work. In the man who is enlightened to understand the Word of God, the Word of God works in many different ways according to its various natures. Basically there are ten different ways in which God’s Word works according to its ten different natures. Many Christians do not read the Bible regularly. There are very few Christians who read the Bible daily with discipline. Many do not touch the Bible for days and months together, and it is not too much to say that there are quiet a number of Christians who do not touch the Bible for years together. What is the reason for this neglect or lack of interest? There is no single reason for this tragedy. One reason is that some are Christians for just the name-sake, but they had never experienced salvation through Christ. These name- sake Christians will never read the Bible because they can never understand the glory, sweetness and value of God’s Word. But what about the truly born again believers?! They are genuinely saved by the power of the blood of Jesus. They have understood the power and meaning of the Cross. But still they do not spend time on the Word of God as much as they ought to. This could be because the children of God had forgotten what the Word of God can do in and for them. If only they are mindful and aware of how the Word of God works for their good, they would not have neglected it so much. If you are one of those true believers, neglecting to spend time on the Word of God, then I would like to turn on your interest and love for the Word of God through the following message by bringing to your remembrance how the Word of God works in you and what it will do in and for you.
The Word of God is compared to ten things in The Holy Bible. Each comparison signifies a different way in which God’s word works in us. Let us now meditate upon these things by the help of the Holy Spirit.
According to Luke 8:11, the Word of God is compared to seed. The Word of God has the nature of a seed. It behaves and works like a seed. Let us first think about a seed. What does a farmer do with a seed? He sows it in the soil. Before sowing the seed, the soil has to be tilled. After that, they dig deep into the soil and sow the seed in the deep and cover it again with the soil. By taking proper care of it, the sown seed will germinate, grows into a plant and brings forth fruits according to its nature. There are many kinds of seed. Each seed produces fruit of its kind. A single seed grows into a big tree, produces fruits and become useful to many people. Even the Word of God works in the same way as the seed. The human heart is the soil. Before sowing the Word of God, the heart is to be tilled. It means that the heart is to be prepared and be ready to receive God’s Word. If the ground is not tilled then the sown seed has a very little chance to germinate.
