Mature Christians Must Grow in His Word


 IS YOUR CONFIDENCE IN THE WORD OF GOD?
Amazingly to me, individuals that have been walking with the Lord for many years, conversation never seem to turn to the Lord or His Word. Seemingly the Word of God has been pushed to the sidelines as people focus on all the enticements and distractions of the surrounding world.

ARE YOU STILL GROWING?
As mature Christians we should have developed a healthy pattern of reading the Word as a part of our daily diet. Just as quickly as we reach for the first cup of coffee or power drink we should be opening our Bible for a healthy dose of truth to stimulate our mind and spirit for the day ahead.

NO COASTING!
This is not the time to coast. This is the time to dig in. We do not know how much time we have left on this side of heaven. We need to use our time wisely and effectively to reach our friends and family. The Word will catapult you forward with purpose and drive. You may have more time for yourself now that you are retired or your children have grown. You no longer have to fulfill the desire of your boss or cart children around to all of their activities. 

THE LORD DESIRES TO DIRECT YOU.
The Word continually changes your heart and directs your steps if you allow it. The Lord desires that your heart becomes like His. He came to the earth to serve mankind, not to be served. We must ask ourselves if we are missing opportunities to better serve others. Are we bringing others joy, hope or peace?

BE HIS INSTRUMENT.
Allowing yourself to be an instrument of the Lord will bring interesting challenges. Life continues to be exciting as you continue reading and studying the Word because you acquire wisdom and knowledge from above. When someone questions you about your faith or why you think the way you do, you will have answers that come from the very mouth of God. 

THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURE WILL DESCRIBE YOU AS YOU MATURE IN THE WORD AND THE LORD:
“Be diligent to present yourself approved of God, as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the Word of truth.” 2Timothy 2:15

TODAY’S TAKEAWAY:
 *Continue the pattern of reading the Word daily

 *Look for opportunities to share the Word with others

 *Ask the Lord for His purpose and direction

 *Serve others
