In Christianity, we emphasize studying and
meditating on God’s Word because of what
it produces in your life: ever-increasing glory! That’s
what your life is for. The glory of God is in the Word,
and that glory becomes more visible in your life as
you consciously and consistently feed on the Word.
The Bible says, “…Be not conformed to this
world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your
mind…” (Romans 12:2). 2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “But
we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory
of the Lord, are changed into the same image from
glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” These
verses emphasize the ever-increasing glory in our spirit
as we contemplate the Word.
If you don’t give undivided attention to the study,
meditation, and practise of God’s Word, you inhibit
His glory in your life. This has happened to some
people without them even realizing it. They exposed themselves to news and information from negative sources other than the Word of God.
Remember, you’re what you eat; you become
more and more like the information that you feed on.
The Word of God is the glory of God; therefore, feed
on the Word and your life will be increasingly excellent
and full of glory.
Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word
of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching
and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns
and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts
to the Lord.”
Take the Word of God as God’s vision, opinion,
thought, idea, law or principle. Above all, take His
Word as truth—absolute reality. Be inundated with the
Word so that all you think and talk is the Word. That’s
the sure path to a life of ever-increasing glory.
Say These Words: I’m growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. My life isn’t separate from the Word, because the Word of God is my source; it makes my spirit buoyant with faith, hope and love.Through the Word, my life is conditioned for victory every day such that no matter the circumstances, I’m triumphant always. Amen.
