“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 ESV
SOMETIMES WE IGNORE THE POINT….MISS THE POINT…FORGET THE POINT…OR CARE LESS ABOUT THE POINT BECAUSE WE SAY IT'S TOO MUCH TO READ…A five or ten-minute reading post is passed over because reading is no longer a fundamental spiritual vitamin for the soul.
Unfortunately, we are living in a TIME where most of society relies on informative videos, browsing on the internet, motivational speakers, sound-good sermons without spiritual anchors, and watching the news channels on tv instead of reading. What a dark-sided way to live. Depending on others to spiritually fertilize your obedience unto GOD is DETRIMENTAL to your spiritual soul. Scriptures teach us: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15) STUDYING IS READING.
Reading is the organic master key to fertilizing your obedience unto GOD. When you don’t read GOD’s Word, you don’t grow; when you don’t grow, you spiritually die. It has been proven plants need sunlight, water, and oral communication. If a living plant needs organic fertilization, so do we. Spiritual fertilization for the soul is to just OBEY GOD and read His word so that you can grow spiritually.
It seems like Christians are copying the world’s non-reading habits to fertilize their minds too. GOD commanded us to READ and OBEY His Word. (Exodus 24:7) In the Bible, GOD’s Word penetrates the deepest parts of our spiritual souls and minds. It is the master teacher with spiritual fertilizer that teaches us the difference between right and wrong so that our obedience is spiritually fertilized to OBEY GOD wholly.
They say if you want to hide something life-changing from society…“Put it in a book.”
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
We know that reading your Word is the fundamental only way to please you. Please forgive us for not reading the Bible as we should. Holy Spirit, help us to read GOD’s Holy Word daily so that our minds and souls will be fertilized to obey without delay. -Amen in JESUS’ name.
