It is Just as Important

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

It is just as important to do it.

“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it” Luke 11:28 New International Version

It is one thing to hear God speak to you, it is just as important to do it.

Think of a child.

The parent informs them it is important to go outside in the cold rain with a coat on.

They hear but do not obey.

What is the end result?

They get sick.

So too it is with God.

When He instructs you to do something it is for your own good.

If you refuse to obey Him you will suffer for it.

When you are suffering why be stupid and crybaby to God: “Why are you doing this to me?”

Now how are you going to hear the word of God if you are sitting in front of the idiot box instead of reading your Bible or listening to sermons online?

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.Psalm 37:4 New International Version

As you delight in doing Gods will in your life, your desires will turn from whining for God to give to you but for God to change your desires to do for Him. When you do this your life will be filled with joy, purpose and meaning.

Then you will get the blessings God intends for you to get.

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” Matthew 6:25–34 New International Version

Prayer: Holy Spirit my mentor, please give me the wisdom to not just hear the word but to do it. I humbly ask in the name of He who obeyed the Fathers will during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. I like the post but we need to be careful as to what is preached on TV. There are subtle differences of doctrine which can slip past the listener yet they can change right gospel into wrong very quickly. That’s why we need to know the word by reading all it has to say on topics. This helps keep us in context on God’s word. We do need to read, study, and pray daily…and we should want to do so! Steve

    • I agree but enjoy listening to simple yet powerful preachers like Spurgeon, Tozer, Alister Beg and am now listening to Bob Davis.

      We can say the same thing about which Bible is the best. I prefer the New King James Version as the others either change many verses or leave them out all together and the King James Bible can be difficult to read.
