In the precious Word of God we read in John 1:14 – (And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.)
In this verse we see that the Word of God actually became flesh. When Jesus showed up on the scene, Bam! There was the Word of God walking around in a fleshly body. There are people that pray every day and say, “Jesus I just want to be closer to you, I want more power in my life.”
My answer to these folks would be to pick up the Word of God and spend quality time in it, for this is exactly how we get closer to Him. Take notice at what I just said, we have got to spend “quality time” in the Word. So many are picking up the Word of God every day and reading it, but are they are spending quality time in it?
Let’s just look at one of the definitions of this word “quality” in the Webster Dictionary. It means “that which makes or helps to make anything such as it is”. If I just read over something real fast just to say I am reading it, I am not quality reading. In simple words - I am not helping make it what it really is, I am not doing it justice.
Now we know that the Word of God is real, but is it real in you and it has to be real for you. So, as you quality read the Word Of God you are helping make it, such as it is for you.
May God richly bless each of you is my prayer.
Until next week, this is Pastor Clifford Rawls reminding you to “reach-out” to those around you!
