Take The Word and Eat It

Gal. 5:13-14; Deut. 6:5; Rev. 10: 8-10; Ps. 40 6; Rom. 10:17


Are you ready to serve one another, submit to one another and wash each other’s feet? Servant hood is our assignment. “It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don’t use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows. For everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That’s an act of true freedom” Gal 5:13-14.

We cannot ever step away from loving God and loving one another. I am concerned that we rush from Sunday to Sunday but we forget what the word has encouraged us to do. If servanthood is our assignment, surely we must go to the Bible and do research to find our purpose on earth.

We think that because we understand what serving is about, that we are actually doing it. Coming to church on a Sunday morning is not serving. Serving is an attitude of heart of loving one another. “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deut. 6:5.

We try to fit God into our little space. We must allow God to break into our lives with His Living Word, and allow the Word to permeate every single fiber of our beings. Fall in love with the Living Word that changes us.

“Then the voice, which I heard from heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, ‘Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.’ So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, ‘Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.’ I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter” Rev 10:8-10.

We think that we are walking in the Word, that we are changing, and that we understand the Word, that we know God. God is far beyond what we could ever think. Sometimes it is our brain that stops us from hearing the Word.

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” Heb 4:12.
Eat the Word, meditate on the Word, allow the Word to change you, give yourself, submit yourself to the Word.
