What a week we had with Dr. Richard and Ronda! There was such a depth of the word. We as a church are coming up higher--higher in the Word and higher in the Spirit. The way we live in eternity is determined by how we live here on earth. There are so many people with knowledge of God but they don't truly know Him. In this day and age it's so important to immerse ourselves in the Word. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." If the Word tells us to rightly divide it must be possible to wrongly divide.
If we have a heart that says, "I can do what I want" then we don't have a heart submitted to God. The Holy Spirit never enters a man and allows them to live like the world. If the Holy Spirit is not our ruler then someone else is!
How awesome it is that God sees us through the work of redemption! We must be found faithful. God only ever promotes by faithfulness. Because God is faithful, he desire a people who are faithful. God is a rewarder of those who have really good hearts. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Revival takes commitment and sacrifice. We can't be filled with all the fullness of God until we are filled with the Word of God. Its time to follow hard after Him!
