The third week of zero income. The phone bill just about empties our checking account. Lights and the internet are due next. The Lord Will Provide.
I recently discovered the Verses in Romans 3:1-3
“Then what advantage does the Jew have? Or what is the profit of circumcision? Much in every way! Because first of all, they were entrusted with the oracles of God. For what if some were without faith? Will their lack of faith nullify the faithfulness of God?”
The Jews were entrusted with the Word of God, now it is our responsibility. How are we doing?
I do not believe we have a clue, what the Word says, means or how to earnestly live in it. The Word created all things, it was spoken, it was done and it was good. (Genisis 1) Jesus told us:
‘Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I tell you, I speak not from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these because I am going to my Father. Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you will ask anything in my name, I will do it.’
Jesus was and is our example. The Words and Works He did were the Fathers Works. If He used the Fathers Words to accomplish His Works, how much more should we?
Being entrusted with His Words is more than being Saved and living a clean life. No, we are called to perform His Works through the use of His Words. This entails more than a passing acquaintance with the Book. We must know and speak its truth.
We have no power, no ability to Walk in His ways if we are not immersed in His Words.
Saints, I can not emphasize how important it is to know and speak His truth. That is what will build the body of Christ, and ultimately bring us the rest and peace that passes understanding. The Lord would have us prosper and be in good health as our soul prospers. (3 John 2)
