He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
Luke 11:28 NIV
I see it all the time. A job is advertised and instead of following the instructions in the advert, people write ‘interested’ in the comments.
You do realise they’ll never be called for interviews or get the jobs! Who do you think will get the job? The person who follows the instruction is the one that stands the chance of getting the job.
That’s how Christians are. God has given us clear instructions in the Bible for the realization of His promises in our lives. Instead of following the instructions as written, we look for shortcuts. Easier to just write a comment than preparing a CV or writing a cover note and sending an email.
God is looking for people, disciplined people who are ready to follow the instructions given by the Holy Spirit to bring to reality the promises of God. Let’s not be ‘commenting Christians’ only, let us move forward to the maturity that is expected of us. We are meant to liberate our world and dominate over everything.
For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship].
Romans 8:19 AMPC
And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.”
GENESIS 1:28 AMP
The whole world is waiting for us to bring forth the power of God, don’t be found wanting. Learn obedience!
God bless you.
