RECEIVING THE WORD

2020 – THURSDAY 19 NOVEMBER

RECEIVING THE WORD

Acts 2:41
Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

The power of your new life in Christ is all about how you receive His word.

WITH GLADNESS
There are many ways that people receive the word preached.
With pride
With skepticism
With disinterest
With opposition
With judgment
However the most powerful way to receive the word is in humility – with joy and gladness.

WITH OBEDIENCE
The way you receive the word determines how you obey the word.
Receiving the word preached, with humility and gladness, opens your heart to hear the voice of God.
When you do hear God’s voice – you want to obey it

WITH IDENTIFICATION
Those who gladly received the word joined themselves to the Apostles – and dedicated themselves to the Lord.
Obedience to God’s word always draws you into fellowship – not away from it.

RECEIVE THE WORD
WITH HUMILITY AND GLADNESS
