I hear them.
I read them.
I study them.
I even memorize them.
God speaks into my heart and mind as I do all of these things with his Word to me. I know his truth and I am accountable for it.
God expects me to respond. Obey. Let him change my thinking and change my actions.
God tells us this as he speaks to Ezekiel, “My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your words, but they do not put them into practice.
God expects me to put his word into practice.
God expects that his words to you will be evident in your life.
We are accountable because we have read and we have heard.
Dear Father, Thank you for your Word to us. Thank you for revealing your truth to us. Please help us put your Word into practice in our lives. Mold us and renew us, Father. Convict us, Holy Spirit, when we fall short. Open our eyes. Open our hearts. In the awesome name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
