John 6:48

I am the bread of life.

 

Measure of reward

PDF

Mark 4: 24 And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.

The message here is a simple one, the word is not given to us to assuage our ears or solely for intellectual pursuit alone, the word was given that we might put it to use. The bible is not an accessory that complements the outward appearance of the faith we profess, rather it is a both a manual and tool given to equip us in our spiritual journey in life. A manual consist of a set of instructions that must be carried out in order to get the desired result.

 The ultimate destination of every word that we hear or read, is to be put to use, it is not useful, nor its power available until it is acted upon.

 Our Lord said that the measure to which the word is put to use, the same measure of reward and many more that would accrue. He said somewhere else, that it is the doers of the word that are blessed.

 Oh Lord help us through the power of the Holy Spirit to be hearers and doers of the word.
