OPENING SCRIPTURES: James 1:25-“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty,and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed”.
The bible is more than a collection of great wonders of old, it is the power of God in print. It is more than a book, It’s the belivers access to dominating here on earth. Our opening scripture makes us understand that it is ‘the perfect law of liberty’, it means the word is living. No wonder Jesus said in John 6:63-” It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”. Now we have seen that the word of God is a potent force that liberates and we know from scripture 2Corinthians 3:17. “Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. So there is a Spirit behind the word that liberates and that is the Spirit of God.
This morning God is say to us that ‘whosoever’ that includes you and me looks at the law of liberty and continues
not being a forgetfulhearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. More than knowing scriptures God is interested that we continue doing that which He has instructed us to do. He is interested that we don’t forget His law . A lot started the race and turned half way, there is no way you are getting the blessings God promised that way. Know, that no verse of scripture profits God, rather it is for our profiting. Understand as well that God knows the Intent of our hearts. He knows those who are there for what they can get from Him and Immediately they get it turn away. Friends, if you love God, you would love His word and continue in obeying Him. The blessings of God are for those who truly continue with Him.
Remain Ever Blessed.
